Our Favorite Dress Trends In Honor Of National Dress Day!

Happy National Dress Day! If you have a new dress you have been waiting to wear, today is the day to show it off! National Dress Day was founded by Ashley Lauren (fashion designer of the evening dress brand, ASHLEYlauren) in October 2016 to “honor all of the ways dresses help us celebrate the significant moments of our lives”. Dresses have evolved over hundreds of years and although they come in many silhouettes, these 5 dress trends are our favorites at Swap.com.

Midi Length Dresses 

If you are like me, most of the short dresses in your closet are meant for more casual occasions during the day and most of the long dresses you own are for a dressier occasion like a wedding. The midi length dress is one of our favorite dress trends because you can not only dress it down with flats or sandals to wear during the day, but you can also easily dress it up with a pair of heels for a more formal occasion. For dresses you want to get more use out of, my best piece of advice is to invest in fabrics like polyester, silk, crepe, satin and chiffon. Dresses made in these fabrics, especially in a midi length dress, can seamlessly take you from day to night by simply swapping out your sandals for a pair of pumps! (more…)

This black and white feminine shift dress from Banana Republic has one type of floral print that is especially on trend right now.
