How to Differentiate Dress Styles
There are many different styles of dresses. If you know the name of each style, it is much easier to find the dress you're looking for. Let's take a look at different styles.
Halter Dresses: The dress is sleeveless and the fabric wraps from underarm up and around back of neck.
- Midi dresses: The skirt extends to the mid-calf. Similar to Tea Length Dress
- Bodycon Dresses: A dress that is like a "second skin", tight fitting to the body.
- Sequin Dresses: Small, shiny discs sewn on to the dress
- Shift Dresses: The bottom of the dress is wider than the top
- Sheath Dresses: The bottom of the dress is the same or narrower than the top
- Peplum Dresses: Peplum is a gathered, short, a bit flared strip of fabric attached at the waist of a woman's top, jacket, blouse, or to the top of the dress
- Tea Length Dresses: The hem of the skirt hangs half way between the knees and the ankles. They are often A-line, but you can find fitted tea length dresses as well
- Skirt Suits: A suit coat is paired with a skirt
- Tunics: Longer top or short dress. Best to wear them with leggings or tight pants.
