7 Casual Dresses Every Woman Should Have

Casual dresses for women are some of the most important pieces of clothing you need in your closet. You can have a variety of casual dresses for every season, and dress them up and down with accessories for several occasions. While dresses come in a variety of styles, patterns, and colors, these are the seven casual dresses every woman should have.


Sleeveless Dresses

The tank dress is perfect for backyard barbecues and casual gatherings with friends. You can wear this versatile summer dress with your arms bared to feel the sun, or slip on a light sweater made from recycled cotton to keep your shoulders warm when the evening breeze picks up. An A-line tank dress with wide straps paired with wedge espadrilles works well for a semi-formal event. Wearing a bolero-style jacket over this dress adds a touch of sophistication.

 

When you're looking for a classic casual dress for women, choose a midi dress. The longer hem of this style of dress hits midcalf and provides modest coverage for your legs. The length of the hem defines the midi dress, and you can wear them in every season and every sleeve length.

 

For a spring backyard party, wear a short-sleeve midi dress with a floral pattern. Wear this dress with neutral-colored block heel sandals and a silver necklace to complete this feminine look. During the winter when going out for a romantic dinner, wear a knitted sweater midi dress made from recycled wool with black tights and high-heeled boots for a timeless appearance.

Short-Sleeve Dresses

Short-sleeve dresses are the most versatile style to have in your dress collection. You can have a short-sleeve dress with small cap sleeves that barely covers your shoulders to ones with a sleeve length that falls to just above your elbow. Short-sleeve dresses come in all lengths and can come flared, have a fitted waist, or be belted for a feminine look. Because of their versatility, make sure you have several short-sleeve dresses in your closet. For a casual summer gathering, wear a wraparound midi dress with cap sleeves for a charming effect. Finish this outfit with strappy open-toe heels.

 

T-shirt dresses offer the most comfort in your casual dress wardrobe. You can style them in a multitude of ways, wear them in any season, and dress them up or down with belts and accessories. Create a classic fall look wearing a long-sleeve T-shirt dress paired with a wool blazer and knee-high riding boots. During the spring, wear a short-sleeve midi T-shirt dress worn with simple white sneakers when shopping or having coffee with friends.

 

Jumpsuits

While you may not classify a jumpsuit as a casual dress, this piece of clothing is a one-piece garment, just like the design of a dress. Jumpsuits were originally designed in 1919 for paratroopers, evolved for industrial workers, and today, take the fashion runway by storm. One of the beautiful aspects of wearing a jumpsuit is how easy they are to style. You can wear this one-piece garment casually with sneakers and a sunhat while sailing in the bay. Or, create an elegant look with a wide-leg jumpsuit paired with platform sandals and a strand of pearls.

A Mini Dress

You can't go wrong with having at least one mini-dress in your closet. Worn as is, this style of dress allows your legs to feel the sunshine on a warm sunny day. You can also use the mini dress as a tunic top to wear over leggings, jeans, bike shorts, or long skirts.

It's a breeze to change up your mini dress outfits with accessories like belts, scarves, and jewelry. Use your mini dress as a tunic by wearing it over a pair of yoga pants when going to a movie. On a cool fall evening, wear a mini dress with tights paired with suede ankle boots. Finish your autumn ensemble with an organic denim jacket.

 

 Long-Sleeve Dresses

Long-sleeve dresses can stand on their own without layering. These are the easiest of the casual dresses to style, as all they need are simple accessories to complete any outfit ensemble. When attending a summer party held in the forest, create a flowing, feminine look by choosing an empire-waist dress with flouncy sleeves. A long-sleeve turtleneck shirt dress made from recycled cotton will not only keep you warm, but looks fashionable paired with leggings tucked into your favorite pair of knee-high boots.

 

These seven dress styles for women will give you plenty of versatility for most casual events and occasions. When choosing these dresses, look for brands that use sustainable materials, source from responsible farmers, and support living wages for garment workers. Doing so helps save the environment and the dignity of workers.
