Types of Dresses
Dresses , being one of the most popular garments of all time, are far too multitudinous in style to be named briefly. Some designs , however, have stood the test of time and have remained popular (or have regained popularity) and are still around today! Let's take a look at some all time fan-favourites :
- Sheath Dress: Picture a skirt that goes all the way up. Sheaths are normally tailored so that they form-fit the wearer. They usually have no sleeves or straps, so a snug fit is crucial!
