Every woman should have versatile dresses in her closet to make getting dressed so easy. Investing in a few quality pieces is also a great way to save money because you don’t have to shop for a new dress every time there’s an upcoming event, whether it’s your sister’s wedding, a coffee date, or a night out with your friends.

At Hardtofind, you’ll find versatile dresses that can serve as a foundation for any capsule wardrobe, which is a limited selection of interchangeable clothing pieces that can complement each other. From cotton dress, floral dress, midi, and wrap-around to a T-shirt style dress and formal gowns, you’ll always find the perfect gifts to match your giftee’s personal taste and body type when you shop from us.

We also carry a large collection of women’s fashion items, ranging from skirts, cardigans, and shoes to tops and shirts, kimonos, and sarongs.

How to choose the perfect dress?

While there is no single, universally accepted definition of a perfect dress, there are key factors that you should always keep in mind when it comes to choosing the perfect dress as a gift, i.e., the occasion, the season (or weather), your giftee’s personal style, their preferred fabric and colour, and ultimately, their body type and size.

Take note that pretty dresses for women are those that accentuate their best features while concealing desired areas to help them feel more confident. To help you better understand how to choose the right one, read our tips below.

  1. Wrap dresses. They are ideal for almost all body types because they raise the bust area, make the waist appear slimmer, and help to conceal large thighs.
  2. A-line dresses. They are recommended if you want your legs to appear slimmer and your waist to look more defined.
  3. Shirt dresses. Their versatile style complements almost all body types. However, you may want to wear them with a belt if you have a svelte figure to create more definition.
  4. Basque dresses. They create additional volume in the area around the hips, making them ideal if you want to highlight your curviness.
  5. Bodycon dresses. If you have wide shoulders, they are great for creating a more balanced figure.
  6. Baby doll dresses. They flatter the figure of short and petite ladies.
  7. Straight dresses. If you have thick thighs and are tall, they look great on your figure.
  8. Tube dresses. They can make you appear more svelte and taller.
  9. Dress with a raised waist. They look great if you want to accentuate your bust area and conceal your waist.

What are the different ways to style a dress?

Dresses are one of the most versatile items of clothing to travel with, regardless of the season. Simply layer them up with cardigans, coats, leggings, pants, scarves, or even skirts.

If it’s summer, a colourful dress looks great on its own. But if the temperature drops slightly, you can simply layer it with a basic tee or light cardigan. And during winter, wear dresses with tall boots, knit tights or leggings (or thermal if you’d like), and a thick coat.

Aside from using other pieces of clothing, you can also use jewellery (either a statement piece or a subtler, more elegant one) to style a dress. Using the right handbags, shoes, and hats can also make a huge difference. The general rule of thumb is choosing simple accessories if you are wearing a patterned or colourful dress. On the other hand, opt for statement pieces that draw the eyes if you’re donning a simpler dress.

How do you maintain a dress?

Read our guide on how to take care of lady dresses.

Repair damage. Repair any damage, no matter how small it may seem when you first notice it on your dress. This simple hack is the key to increasing the lifespan of any piece of clothing.

Read the label carefully. Different materials entail different washing and caring instructions. For instance, delicate fabrics like wool, cashmere, and silk should be washed on a gentle cycle or hand-wash.

Wash less. Washing too often can damage the fibres and ultimately reduce the lifespan of any piece of clothing. This is especially true with dry cleaning that uses harsh chemicals. If your dress is not dirty but only needs some freshening up, why not hang it outside rather than throw it in the wash bin?

Treat your dresses with ‘gentleness’. In general, wash them at low temperatures with a gentle detergent to prevent their colours from fading. Another valuable tip is to wash them inside out to reduce the friction that can actually damage the fibres.

Air dry your dresses. Air drying is actually gentler for your dresses compared to tumble drying. But if you really need to use your tumble dryer, use the gentle or delicate cycle.

Store them properly. Store your garments in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight, heat, and moisture. Also, don’t overfill your wardrobe; use lavender or mothballs to protect your dresses against clothes moths.

Now that you know how to choose, style, and care for dresses, the next step is to visit Hardtofind and find the right one that reflects your giftee’s personality and accentuates their best features. Shop now!
