The mandatory fashion staples every true fashionista must have in her style closet are varied and sometimes overwhelming. When it comes to gowns, the task of choosing, selecting and buying the dresses that will stay in your wardrobe for a lifetime can be daunting.
Learning to streamline your options, to the basic and necessary, is the key to buying stylish dresses that are eternally trendy, dynamic and suitable for all the social situations. Below are the FOURTEEN MUST-HAVE dresses for every fashionista.
The Sheer Dress: As exemplified by the legendary style amazon Cher, to her recent disciples, Beyoncé, the Kardashians, Rhianna et al, the sheer daring, sensuality and boldness of this dress, guarantees instant glam status and center stage attention whenever you wear it. Beware though, because any mishap can turn this dress from classy to tacky in an instant.
The Plunge Dress: Taking the plunge can amp up your style game in minutes. Ensure your “babies” are packaged and presented classily, with either a Wonderbra for the less endowed fashionistas or a plunging bra for the well-endowed. The over-endowed fashionistas can still wear the trend by keeping the plunge in the back.
The Monochromatic Dress: Be it black and white or varying shades of any primary hue, the monochrome trend is an eternal trend that you can’t do without.
