Face it, we women just LOVE shopping. We’re guilty of splurging on chunky accessories, luxury bags, glittery pumps and, of course, pretty dresses. If you’re a shopaholic like most of us, then you definitely have to own some signature dresses. And if you’re having trouble with your wardrobe, we’re here to put an end to the suffering with our list of 10 dresses every woman should have in her wardrobe.
This one’s a classic. No matter what accessory you club it with, you’ll always manage to look like a million dollar baby. LBDs make for great evening wears, and can easily be worn to occasions ranging from office functions to dates. Even if you go sans jewellery, your LBD alone will make sure you look glammed up.
If you’re not in the mood to sport a pair of blue jeans, you have an alternative, slip into a maxi dress. They’re not only uber-comfy but also give your body a sleek appearance (especially, if you want to hide those extra pounds)! Over time, you can experiment with colour, print and accessories. A maxi can be worn for casual events like catching a movie with your besties or grabbing a quick lunch with your man. Well, you get the drift!
If you’re totally gaga about prints, you MUST own a floral dress. These dresses are very chic, trendy and easy to carry off. Since your dress is dominated by prints, you don’t have to over-accessorize for this outfit. Just a dainty bracelet and a cute pair of metallic earrings will do the trick. For picnics and casual coffee dates, this dress is ideal.
If you’re a party freak, you MUST get your hands on a cocktail dress ASAP! These dresses highlight your curves, boost your self-esteem and add depth to your look. And it works pretty well if you want to catch a certain boy’s attention! Add more funk to your look by clubbing your dress with a few statement baubles and carrying a geometric shaped clutch with you.
No dress comes close to the red one. It makes you look elegant and sexy. The beauty of wearing a red dress is that it makes your personality glow without you even having to try. It’s definitely an attention-grabber and gives you the confidence to conquer the world! Since red is an overpowering colour by itself, you don’t need to stress on the accessories for this one.
The skater dress is fun and trendy. It’s a perfect dress to wear when heading out to brunch with your BFFs. It's great for channelling some casual-yet-sexy vibe, and looks fab on all body types. Club it with a vintage satchel or an adorable Aztec backpack for a truly outstanding look!

If you love denim as a fabric, then this is an outfit worth a shot. To complete the look, you might want to scatter a few accessories here and there. Instead of wearing boots or sneakers, try glittery pumps and colourful flats instead. These tiny add-ons will provide a softer touch to your rockstar outfit.
Just like the colour black, white is in a class of its own. With the right amount of bling and statement clutches, you are sure to turn heads. This dress will come in handy for social occasions and parties. However, try going minimal on the baubles, as you don’t want to kill the subtlety of the dress.
The sheath dress screams sophistication and commands attention. A perfect dress to wear for office and attending business meetings. With a smartly cut blazer and the right pair of shoes, you’re bound to make a good impression in front of your boss. Occasionally, you can also play with colours and prints to add a touch of brightness to your outfit.

The lace dress is perfect for a touch of flirtiness to your look. It’s elegant, cute and chic. Invest in a good lace dress so it can work for any occasion. The key here is to keep the outfit simple. A classic pair of nude pumps and a designer bag is all you need to complete your look.
