Casual plus-size dresses are a wardrobe staple. Dia & Co has casually chic dresses that you can wear when you want to show off your relaxed polished style. We have cute casual dresses that can go from a school run to lunch with friends. Whether for travel, work, or play, our comfy and on-trend casual dresses will have you looking your best no matter the occasion.
It’s fun to shop for the perfect dress that reflects both your personality and wardrobe. While we created a quick guide on how to dress for your body type, in the end, you have to dress for yourself. After all, your personal style doesn’t fit into a box. So, use the below as a suggestion on what to look for when picking up a casual wedding guest dress, or something to wear when checking out museums or art galleries.
A-line, fit and flare, off-the-shoulder, puff sleeve, plunging necklines, and wrap dresses look glorious on pear shaped body types (those with a defined waist and hips that are wider than your shoulders).
Bias cut, empire waist, tailored shift dresses, blouson waist, A-line or dresses that have boat or square necklines help apple shaped body types (where your shoulders are broader than your hips with a fuller midsection) look their best.
Belted dresses, mini, ruffled hem, wrap styles, fit and flare, sheath and shirt dresses with a set-in waistband can highlight an hourglass body type (those who have shoulders and hips almost equal in width and a defined waist).
Belted, puff sleeves, ruched waisted dresses, and fit and flare styles complement a rectangular body type (where all your body measurements are uniform).
Summer casual dresses like T-shirt dresses, shift and sundresses can quickly change their look if you’re going from a day out to a dinner. Adding something as simple as a belt or a jacket can add additional flair to its style. Even adding a necklace or switching out shoes can level up a casual dress outfit quickly. Throw on and go dresses can go from work to a beach wedding when using accessories to change its vibe.
As mentioned earlier, it’s easy to change the vibe of a casual dress with an accessory or jacket. Think of a casual dress as the foundation of a capsule collection: one item that goes from day to night simply by adding a layer or changing a shoe.
Take the classic T-shirt dress, for example. On its own, it can go from a parent-teacher conference to a casual Friday to the office to a tip out of town. Add a blazer and booties, and you’re now rocking a modern power suit.
Most casual dress silhouettes can use the same style tips as the above T-shirt dress. A wrap, a jacket, or a cropped blazer can turn the best casual dresses into desk-to-dinner outfits.
Jewelry can also help turn a casual dress into a party dress. Add glittery jewelry to a dress and it’s ready for cocktails.
Whether you’re looking for a casual dress for a weekend away, or are looking to bolster your #WFH wardrobe, Dia & Co stylists can help you select the perfect casual dresses for your lifestyle.
