1. Dress, $1,276, from Cecile Bahnsen at NET-A-PORTER
Danish designer Cecile Bahnsen is known for her minimalistic and clean-looking garbs. This dress from her eponymous label says it all. Wear it with a pair of tan flat sandals.
2. Dress, $119, from Zara
What we love about this dress is that it can be both serious and casual at the same time. To achieve the former, wear it with the belt. Loose that waist accessory if you’d want to rock it on the weekends.
3. Dress, $139, from Mango
Sometimes, having a dress that’s easy and casual is the best as you can achieve different looks through styling. This Mango dress is the perfect epitome for our description, simply because you can dress it up with a pair of strappy sandals, or down with a pair of sneakers.
4. Dress, $369, from Reformation
Apart from cotton, linen dresses can keep you cool and comfortable throughout the day. However, that’s not the actual reason as to why we chose this number from Reformation; we selected it because it flaunts one of the sexiest parts of your body, aka the collarbone. Accessorise it with gold necklaces.
5. Dress, from Self-Portrait
This isn’t just a typical, basic off-shoulder dress. Its asymmetrical take on the cold shoulder detail gives this number a contemporary and off-kilter edge. Juxtapose it even further by wearing it with a pair of combat boots.
6. Dress, $29.90, from Uniqlo U
There’s nothing fancy about a t-shirt dress. However, if you put on a pair of dainty ear studs, cinch your waist with a thick leather belt and put on a pair of gorgeous heels, it becomes fancy. Oh, and don’t forget about the trendy oversized clutch.
7. Staud dress, $562, from Farfetch
If we can compare this dress to an empowered woman, it’ll be Tilda Swinton. It’s sophisticated yet casually fun all at the same time. Wear it with a pair of white strappy heels for a bit of that spunk.
8. Dress, $84.95, from H&M
Broderie anglaise is a perfect way to showcase your feminine side whilst emulating that edginess of a French girl. Complete the je ne sais quoi look with a straw tote, a boater and a pair of thong sandals.
9. Dress, $79, from Pomelo
Step away from the bothing strappy floral dresses, and slip into a dress with lace inserts to keep you cool and comfortable throughout the day. Accessorise it with a chic basket bag and your favourite pair of statement earrings to complete your brunch look.
10. Dress, $141, from Warehouse
Sometimes, having a maxi dress that’s floaty and pretty is the easiest way you can get dressed for the weekend. This tiered maxi dress is the perfect embodiment of casual chic, and you can dress it up with a pair of gladiator sandals, or down with a pair of mules.
