The 2011 Dress Guide – Casual Wear Gone Glamorous

For 2011 you are going to find dresses are no longer only for special occasions, that dresses are now a part of our everyday wardrobe. The great thing about the 2011 fashion trends is that the sky is the limit and there are really no rules on how to wear a great dress, and if you have the creativity you can wear your dresses in a number of different ways without having to own dozens of different dresses to make it happen. Are you familiar with the mini dress? This is by far the hottest dress of 2011 and we can help you learn how to wear it.

Don’t be afraid of the mini dress! If you are not comfortable showing that much skin you can still take advantage of this style but utilizing the layering trend to make it happen. By wearing a great pair of leggings under your mini dress you can still portray this hot trend but without the revealing nature if this is not your style. Mini dresses can be found in a number of different colors, patterns and fabrics. You will find that the more bold and wild the patterns are the more popular that particular dress. You can make this look happen by pairing an intense pattern or color with black or neutral leggings to balance the fashion trend.

Next on the 2011 must have dress list is the maxi dress. Yes, for those of you who have experience the maxi dress in your past it is back! The maxi dress is a floor length dress that can be strappy, strapless or halter to name a few different styles. What is great about the maxi dress is that it can be worn alone and look fabulous or it can be layered with cute crop sweaters and cardigans which allow you to wear this seemingly summer dress 365 days of the year. For those shorter women out there don’t think you are not able to wear a dress like this! Heels are the answer to your problem. You don’t have to be tall with long legs to look amazing in a maxi dress. Wedges are a great combination with this dress but any type of heels you have will enhance your height and allow you to look great in this casual trend.

Lastly, we can’t forget to mention the bubble dress. The bubble dress is yet another fashion trend that has been revived from fashion history. It is an incredibly cute, glamorous and elegant look that any woman can wear no matter what your body type currently is. The bubble dress is the perfect dress to accent your features and hide your problem areas. This works specifically if you have problem areas around the hip area, because this is where the dress bubbles out and no one will know what’s underneath!

Any of the dresses mentioned above can be worn with leggings underneath for warmth or just an added bit of personality, they can be layered on top with sweaters and worn with any type of accessory you love to make that dress and casual style your own!
