American Rag Dress
An American Rag dress exhibits a sense of sophistication, comfort and femininity. Not only does it come in a variety of cuts, but looks good on women of all body types. When picking a dress, try on a large variety to make sure it fits right. Always wear clothing that fit just right as too big or too small clothing looks unflattering.
Perhaps the most casual of any dress, the maxi dress offers a certain sense of casual chic style to a woman wearing it. Not only can it be accessorized to fit different occasions, but it also remains a go-to dress for any summer or warm weather event. For something a little different, opt for one with colorblocking or in a halter variation that provides some dimension to the woman's body who wears it.
Another American Rag dress style remains the A-line dress. This type of dress is fitted through the top and gradually loosens around the waist to the hem. It flatters many body types and is appropriate for more dressed-up or professional events. Wear it with heels, booties or flats, and opt for a satchel tote or even clutch handbag to complete the look.
For those who aren't afraid to show a little leg, try a mini dress. This variation hits at the mid-thigh and typically is worn with pumps, booties or heels to further elongate the leg. Perfect for a party or a prom, choose one with a vibrant color that gives off a sense of in-your-face style. Dare to be different!
For something a little more practical and for everyday wear, try a shirtdress. This button-down shirt style can be belted with a pop of color to create an hourglass figure. For summer, try a strapless one that is knee-length and can be worn both dressed up and casually.
Whether one color, patterned or even animal print, choose a dress that complements one's personal style and can be easily mixed and matched with one's existing wardrobe pieces. Not only does this make getting dressed easy, but also extends your closet to create new, fun outfits.
