Brands Nailing Statement Dresses for a Special Event
A statement dress is an easy way to elevate your presence at a special occasion or even casual brunch. An eye-catching dress is enough to carry your look with little effort needed on jewelry or makeup. And that makes for a low-stress, high enjoyment situation. It's a win-win all round.

So what should you look for in a statement dress? Of course, you need to feel great to look fabulous so consider what you want to play up and dull down. If you are conscious of exposing too much cleavage, accentuate your look with a great hemline instead of a plunging neckline. And if you love your toned arms but not your belly then look for a style that flatters in those areas.

There are some amazing labels focusing almost all of their creative energy on statement dresses because they know that a bold dress is very powerful and is really all you need to look great.

The best designs to covet are both versatile and easy to wear. Brands like Tanya Taylor has statement dresses perfected. Her red dress with pink bow here, called the Sasha Dress, could easily be dressed up for night or down for day depending on what shoe you pair with it. And the wrap style flatters any body shape.

For Love & Lemons is another great brand known for incredible statement dresses for so many occasions. You could easily find a more demure statement dress if you are a wedding guest or a sexy number for a girls night out.
