Do you ever shop dresses that you really like, end up buying it in the store and then later regret it after wearing it only once or twice? I’ve done this way too many times – so many many that I’m writing a blog post about it. ha! Dresses are my favorite. They’re an easy go-to piece that doesn’t require too much brain power to style. If you’re looking to learn how to shop for dresses that you can wear over and over again keep reading!
Tip 1: Be careful with crazy prints/patterns. You will easily get tired of it!
I used to buy dresses that were the most eye-catching in the store. I love bold prints (huge fan of leopard) but I’ve learned that this isn’t always the best way to shop. Dresses that are too loud and crazy with prints always end up in the donate pile.
Tip 2: Think timeless.
Timeless dresses are unique but easy on the print/color. Think “Little Black Dress” – instantly you can see yourself wearing it a million times over and for multiple seasons. These dresses are keepers! (they will be vintage one day)
Tip 3: Fit and style is important.
I have a black and white striped dress that I bought at H&M 2 years ago and it’s still a dress that I will wear out because I love the fit/style so much! I’ll never get tired of stripes. It’s classic and perfect for day or night. I get so many compliments every time I wear it.
