The three dresses you need in your wardrobe-pronto
We are constantly bombarded with the latest styles that hit the runways, resulting in fleeting styles. There are, however, a few classic dresses that stands the test of time and never fail to impress. We have compiled the top three dresses- each of them were doned by iconic women in the past and left stamps of approvals from the harshest fashion critics, even decades later.
- The halter dress
The back-baring dress gained its popularity in the 40s and 50s, thanks to the infamous Marilyn Monroe. Every since then, this is one dress that remains in fashion. We see in it in the recent royal engagement where Meghan Markle was wearing a halterneck bridal designer piece from Stella McCartney for the Frogmore House evening reception.

2.The shirt dress
The shirt dress is a style of women's dress that borrow details from a man's shirt. Not to be mistaken as being boring, the multi-faceted shirt dress can surprisingly be a multi-tasker bringing you from desk to beach with just playing with accessories.
Below are some of our absolute favourites:
3. The wrap dress
This iconic dress needs no introduction and has a cult following including Madonna, Michelle Obama and other Hollywood A-listers. The kimono-style wrap dress was introduced in America in the 1970s by Diane Von Fursternsberg which quickly sold this wrap dress in millions.
Known as the universally flattering dress, it is of little wonder why this dress remains ever so popular 40 years later. The adjustable wrap around the waist makes it insanely figure flattering (and also leaves some leeway for more endowed figures).

This makes it the perfect dress that is worth every women's investment for both work and play.
