As with many fashion trends, daytime dresses have gone by the wayside. I’ll be the first to say that leggings and jeans can be more comfortable. However, there is just something about putting on a dress that makes me feel confident. Personally, I have always preferred feminine clothing, and that’s the persona dresses have.
If you’re looking to change up your every day look a bit, below are a few ways you can wear dresses during the day.
They’re a very comfortable and cozy option for a daytime dress. Wear these with any type of boot, over the knee boots would be a unique alternative. Another way to style a sweater dress is to wear a pair of cuffed skinny jeans underneath. Wear it with or without a belt. Sweater dresses are meant to be loose-fitting, but you don’t want to look too bulky.

For winter, you can wear a shirt dress like a duster with a long sleeved t-shirt and jeans, or you can layer a turtleneck and leggings underneath and add a belt. I’ve got more ideas on How to Layer a Shirtdress on my blog. If you have a denim shirt dress try layering it over leggings with a faux fur vest. Another way to wear a shirtdress is to wear high rise pants underneath. Then leave the bottom half of the dress unbuttoned as I’m showing in the pictures below. As for shoes for daytime dresses, I’d go with ankle boots, sneakers, or loafers.

Floral Satin Shirtdress | $149
Long Sleeved Shirtdress | $139
Long floral dresses
Right now, I’m loving long floral dresses. Floral daytime dresses portray a romantic look yet with chunky boots they can have a little edginess. To wear floral in fall and winter you need to stick with darker floral prints. You can also add sweaters and denim vests as the weather gets cooler.

Lately, I’ve been watching the television series Cable Girls on Netflix. I’m enjoying it. It’s about friendships between four women that work together as telephone operators, trying to gain representation in the 1920’s. I love all the fashion from the 20’s and 30’s and watching this series is what inspired me to write this blog about dresses.
On most days you will probably see me in jeans or leggings. However, I do like changing it up and throwing on a skirt or a dress. What I do know is that on the days I decide to wear a dress, I will not be staying home and cooking dinner.
