The A-Line dress is a firm favourite for a reason! This universally flattering silhouette creates a beautifully feminine figure, and it works for any and all occasions you might have coming up on that social calendar of yours.
Whether you’re hunting for your dream dress to tuck away and pull out when you need, or you’re scrolling for the perfect piece to wear to your next big event (like a holiday party or prom), an a-line dress is going to work wonders for you. Once you’ve nabbed yourself your perfect fit, it’s time to start thinking about your styling options. Here are a few dressing ideas to get you on your way…
Sometimes, if you really want to highlight a certain aspect of a piece, you have to contrast it against something that is the total opposite. Creatively contrasting certain elements of your outfit helps you let the gorgeous, feminine nature of your a-line silhouette really shine.
Dress your gown with heavy, chunky accents such as platform sandals or leather boots, statement chain jewellery and moody dark nail polish. You’ll feel like you have a whole new piece on your hands in a matter of moments, promise! This one is great for more casual events or nights out.

Your dress has a beautiful triangular structure to it and really cuts into the curves of your figure. A great way to amp this up even more is by dressing your a-line item with sharp, geometric accessories. Think an on-trend square or triangle resin clutch bag, bold circular earrings and cut crease eyeliner. This look has a touch of 60s mod about it and is sure to make you stand out from the crowd at any event.
Step into a different decade by dialling up the elegant, old world glamour of a classic a-line dress. This one is pretty simple, but incredibly effective all the same. Grab a simple string of pearls or choose delicate gold jewellery, curly your hair and sweep it to one side, drape a silk shawl over your shoulders and swipe on a red lipstick. Finish with subtle nude heels and a small, matching clutch bag for a completely timeless ensemble that never goes out of style. You’ll never tire of a little classic dressing, plus it works for your more formal affairs like weddings or proms.
The prairie trend isn't going anywhere, and thank goodness for that! Dressing for this style is relatively easy and will have you feeling absolutely stunning. Grab a pair of frilly white socks and use them to add a touch of innocence to your shoes of choice. Choose an a-line piece with a delicate floral pattern to reiterate the dreamy, free feeling that this aesthetic gets across. Finish with a pair of flower resin drop earrings and tie your hair in a bun to let them shine. This is a really different take on your traditional evening or event wear dressing, so have fun with it.
