One thing I often say is that, for most 'normal' women, a dress will always be a staple. But it cannot be just any dress, that dress has to enhance our natural curves and add femininity, not too lose, not to tight. Daring cruising the current trends with shapeless cuts will do nothing for us. It may sound restrictive, however, it's all a question of how you want to present yourself. Two things to consider: fabric and cut. Mid-weight fabrics are perfect as they accomodate curves without clinging to them and as for the cut it will enhance, show the right amount of skin (remember the rule "the length of a garment should fall at the smallest part of the body), and finally, an everyday staple dress should be perfect for work or play. Being comfortable is key, I like the neoprene fabric for that, it also will keep the shape throughout the day so you don't need to worry about looking unpolished for a cocktail after work. Pretty patterns will add a feminine flare to the look.
