They have a great collection of fun frocks all at super affordable prices so you are bound to find the perfect gown for any occasion. We've picked out five the dresses that every woman needs in her wardrobe, and as they are all crazy affordable there's no reason you can't collect them all. You can thank us later!
1 - The LBD
Oh the classic LBD, I love you so. You’ve always been there for me, from those days when I couldn’t find a thing to wear in my closet to those when I just needed to look half a size thinner. We’ve been through a lot together and I feel like this relationship is in it to last. I particularly like the changes you’ve been making, like this new leather look, I like it a lot. You always know exactly what I need; you know that adding textures also adds interest to an outfit. Let’s stay together forever, okay dear?
2 - The Look at me dress
The queen of pop (and generally just winning at life), soulstress Beyonce dubbed the ‘look-at-me’ dress the ‘freakum dress’. Whether it’s your birthday, graduation or engagement the aim is to be a little stand-outy and amazing looking. In the words of wise Mrs Carter herself, “time to impress, pull out your freakum dress, oh, oh, oh. Every woman has one”.
3 - The Cheer up, sunshine dress
There are some things in life, like popping candy, the first sunny day after winter, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Friends marathons and crocheting that just give you warm and fuzzy happy feelings. The ‘cheer up, sunshine’ dress is one of those things. Whether you’ve had a crappy day or it’s just miserable outside, throw on this colourful number and turn a cold shoulder to the bad stuff. Just looking at this dress makes me want to skip delightfully through a field of daisies, blow dandelions and make daisy chains, join me?
4 - The Girls night out dress
Girls night out, you know what that means? Neon florals, harem pants and large spiked shoulder pads! Just kidding, kind of; girls night out means that you can rock your more fashion forward pieces and get impressed nods from your girlfriends rather than confused side-ways glances from men in your life. This bang-on piped body-con number is super flattering and just of-the-moment enough to give you serious style brownie points!
5 The Date night dress (and 5a... because you'll look so hot on the first date you'll definitely have a second)
If you’re the type that likes to go all out on date nights, then this dress is definitely, positively, almost certainly the dress for you. The skater style dress is flattering on almost everyone, no wonder it’s been sticking around for so long. It adds shape to boyish figures and highlights all the good parts for the hourglass girl; you can’t really go wrong here. The black is grown up and sexy and the croc print adds a touch of fun. Go on, you’ll be fine, have a good time you gorgeous little thing.
