Dresses You Never Knew Suited You
We love dresses here at Tooksie, all year round no matter what the occasion. Wearing a dress could be the answer to your style dilemmas as it’s so easy as you don’t have to waste time figuring out what to wear, just literally throw it on & flaunt your style! It’s funny that a lot of women aren’t interested in wearing them unless they’re attending a special event as they tend to think that they are overdressed, or, that they can’t find the right dress to accentuate their assets. Whatever body type you have, there will always be a dress that will flatter your shape & give you the
stylish look that you have always wanted. We’ve chosen five dresses from our collection to give you an idea of the type of dress that works for you, whether you’re brunching with friends, shopping, wedding guest, or, whether you’re like me, just for the fun of it! With any luck, by the time you finish reading, you may want to give one of them a try!
1. The Wrap
One of our favorite’s, it’s so flattering, stylish & looks great on all body shapes, particularly if you have a petite upper body & wider on the hips. A tie waist like our ‘Seraphina’ blue midi dress gives a slimming effect with the V shaped neckline that enhances your top half & slims over your hips. If you’re looking to add curves, this is the perfect choice!
2. Flattering Florals
Florals are so cute, spring like, romantic & are no longer associated with your granny or a pair of curtains. Darker florals are so easy to style & can be paired with your favorite strappy sandals or you can match your shoes to the florals. Keep your accessories to a minimum otherwise they may clash too much with the patterns. Floral prints have evolved over the years & will probably never go out of style. If you’ve never tried it, give our ‘Cassia’ sunflower print bandeau dress a go & see how you get on!
3. The Maxi
A summer wardrobe staple that tends to look good on anyone, it’s cool & versatile & can be dressed up or down if you like the casual look. Always fashionable the maxi is multipurpose for running errands, walking along the beach with your sunhat & sandals, the easiest option for everyday life & we adore them! See our ‘Allegra’ black jersey maxi for some outfit inspo.
4. Elegant Midi
An elegant midi should be a wardrobe staple for attending formal events as a wedding guest, graduation or garden party. Sometimes figuring out what to wear can be stressful in itself, but, you can’t go wrong with our ‘Penelope’ mustard midi, with white polka dots & stylish ruffle detail. A midi dress is always the perfect choice when you’re not quite sure about the dress code of the event that you’ve been invited to.
5. Work to Evening
Making the transition from work to evening isn’t always easy. If you have dress down Friday’s at work, a cute dress that serves a dual purpose is your best bet. A one & done you can wear a blazer over by day, & then remove for the evening. Our chic ‘Gisele’ has just the right amount of animal print to make the switch from day to evening – just add clutch & heels & you’re sorted!
