One of the best things about being a girl is that we get to wear dresses!
Women have historically always worn dresses and skirts and it has really only been the past 100 years that women started wearing trousers and only since the 70s have trousers/pants/jeans become fashionable for women to wear on a daily basis.
I bet, if you think about it, wearing a dress is not the first thing you think about putting on when getting dressed in the morning. Most of us think about comfort and convenience, and for some reason this equals not the simple and flowing elegance of a dress but instead it equals jeans, tailored pants, or cargos, hardly ever a dress. What happened to the dress? Is a dress no longer the go-to outfit for the modern woman?
While curating all these gorgeous examples of women wearing dresses, it seems hard to believe that the humble dress is often my second choice when trying to decide what to wear each morning. Since I began thinking about writing this post I have worn a dress every single day. I have unearthed some from the back of my wardrobe that I had all but forgotten I even owned.
How lovely that they now have a new lease on life and even better that I also have more than a few new choices when getting dressed in the morning!
