Wardrobe Winner: The best day dresses for all social events

day dress

Whether you’re chilling at home with your friends or spending a summer’s day down the pub, finding the right vibe is always important. In our eyes, an adorable day dress could help you stick out from the crowd.

With summer peeking its head over the horizon, a day dress will help you refresh your look just in time for the sunny season. Here are some day dresses for every occasion, no matter where you’re heading.

Floral styles

If you’re a fashionista without a floral day dress in your wardrobe, you’re missing out big time. Floral day dress styles bring some botanical beauty to your look and are perfect for complementing the summer season. Floral prints come in all patterns and designs, from colourful and bold to understated and minimalistic. Mixing up your floral look with some wicker hats, white shoes and a cute bag will give you the ultimate summer look. Why not add some contrast too? The colour that comes with a floral design can be offset with a gorgeous black bag. Whatever the occasion, floral day dresses are the perfect choice for those warm summer days and suit the day to night transition down to the ground.

Simplicity

If you’re a fan of mixing and matching, having some neutral tones in your wardrobe is an absolute must. White, black and grey day dresses will give you a whole host of options when you want to mix things up and let your creative juices flow. A white lace day dress can be mixed with a cute black jacket, while puff sleeve day dresses look super chic when paired up with a brown hat and sunglasses. In our eyes, simplicity is a virtue. Overthinking your day dress look can result in a muddled outfit. Keep things simple and use neutral tones.

Patterns and designs

Floral styles aren’t the only designs suited to day dresses. Whether you’re painting the town red or just having some drinks in the pub, a cute pattern day dress will tone down your look without being too informal. You will easily be able to find plus size summer dresses with stunning patterns and designs that will be on point for a warm evening. Polka dot spots are never out of fashion and supply you with that perfect balance. If you’re keen for something a little more abstract, a fabulous midi wrap dress with colourful spots will suit your day look down to a tee. Contemporary or traditional, finding a pattern day dress you adore will give your wardrobe a boost.

Formal looks

2020 was a nightmare for fashionistas who love to dress up. If you’ve been desperate to get out to the pub, there’s no shame in dressing things up with your day dress. High necklines and puff sleeves add an extra something to your look and can elevate things up another level. A high neckline dress also looks fabulous when mixed with some adorable jewellery and strappy satin sandals. Why not go a little more ‘out there’? Bring in some bold colours and all eyes will be on you whichever social occasion you’re attending.

If you’re not sure what to wear, a gorgeous day dress will always supply you with the right kind of look.
