9 Types of Versatile Dresses You Need in Your Wardrobe

Scouting for a dress for a cocktail party? Or need quick fashion inspiration for your sundowner event? Whether you’re going to be indoors or outdoors, this collection of nine versatile party dresses will elevate your fashion wardrobe to a new level. Let’s make the dreamy task of finding the perfect dress for you possible with these nine gorgeous ensembles - 

  1. Mini Dress 


Are you hunting for a sexy little number that can make a statement at your next party? If yes, a party mini dress is all you need to make heads turn.

A mini dress is all about showing off those sexy legs while exhibiting a dash of sass. On days when you want to take down the world and feel your liberating self, slip into this fashion-forward piece.

However, the real magic of a mini dress lies in its ability to make you feel confident and glamorous. Look at this little black dress, for example. It’s a chic black attire that will hug you in all the right places and accentuate your curves beautifully. The daring hemline, rich silhouette, and graceful frill detail at the shoulder is giving the main character vibes. 

You can take this look up a notch with a radiant necklace and chunky diamond-embellished earrings. Put together this look with your strappy heels and a classy sling bag, and that’s it, you are ready to take on the night. 

Ideal for - A ladies' club night or a hot date with your partner at the bar!

  1. Midi Dress


If a maxi dress feels too long for you and a mini dress too short, you are an a-midi-dress-type-of-girl. Hitting just the sweet spot with its hemline, a midi dress is an incredibly versatile pick. 

Be it a day out with your girls, an afternoon coffee with your office colleagues, or a night out with your love, you can never go wrong with a midi dress. It’s exactly why this timeless style has been everyone’s favorite for decades. 

This bodycon Crystal Midi Dress reassures our faith in the graceful power of a midi-dress. Falling just a little below the knee, it looks like a sculpture of sophistication, hotness, and charm. Its show-stealing crystal bra line and a slit in the back at the hemline is adding oomph to the entire look. 

If you happen to style this viscose trendy dress, wear a chunky gold necklace to make your look effortlessly elegant.

Ideal for: An office party or a high-end dinner with your friends

  1. Maxi Dress 


A long, flowy dress with a breezy silhouette is one of the most comfortable and unique dresses online. It is why an effortless maxi dress wins hearts and enhances your style quotient.

If you want to make a statement while feeling comfortable, maxi dresses are your best bet. With a hemline that falls to the floor, this lightweight dress type is the epitome of effortless chic. It exudes a lovely mix of confidence and grace and adds a touch of bohemian elegance. 

The same goes for this lovely Tie Dye Maxi Dress by Uniquely Branded. Whether you’re at a beach event or a music festival, this swoony dress with floral print and ruffle design will make you the most stylish person around. The V-cut at the waist and deep plunging neckline is giving major beachy goals. Just pair it with a few dainty pieces of jewelry and flip-flops, and you’ll be good to go!

Ideal for - A sundowner, an evening beach party, or a Sunday brunch.

  1. Sweater Dress 


If there’s one winter outfit that every fashionista must have in her wardrobe, it’s the sweater dress. Trust us, girls, it would be your best friend when the crisp autumn and chilly winter hits your street. 

There’s a reason why most women have an undying love for sweater dresses. It’s because they hit just the right note of comfort and fashion. We all want to look fabulous even when it’s cold outside. But cardigans and hoodies don’t give the classy vibe that you are hoping for. Feel that high fashion note with a sweater dress that will keep you warm and stylish. 

This cozy pink two-piece sweater dress is an undeniably perfect winter outfit. The long sleeves, the turtleneck, and the high slit - everything is screaming chic! Dress it up with a pair of high knee boots, or go casual with a denim jacket and white sneakers. No matter how you style it, it will top the fashion and comfort charts!

Ideal for - A brunch or a casual outing with your date. 

  1. Mermaid Dress


Do you want to feel like a true fashion icon? opt for a mermaid dress - it’ll make you feel like the absolute queen you are!

A mermaid dress is everything you look for in a great party dress - a dramatic hemline, a flared-out bottom, and a beautiful silhouette hugging your chest and waist just perfectly!

And the possibilities are endless with a beautiful mermaid dress. Whether you buy it from the best online shopping websites like Uniquely Branded or go to a high-end offline clothing store - if you style your trendy dress right, you’ll be the star of the room.

Look how this Rhinestone Mermaid Dress is posing a fashion-forward statement with its spaghetti straps and sweetheart neckline. The bodycon dress fit and a mermaid bottom with ruffles is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Ideal for - A black-tie event, a gala, or a wedding.

  1. Pencil Dress


You must have heard the famous saying - confidence is the best thing you can wear. Well, a quality pencil dress stands by that age-old phrase — this trendy clothing style has confidence and elegance written all over it.

A pencil dress is a must-have for your wardrobe for various reasons. First, its versatility is impressive. Attending a business party out of town? Pair your chic dress with a pair of statement heels and some bold jewelry. Trust us - you’ll create an aura of sophistication around you. If you want to keep it simple and elegant, classic pumps and some delicate accessories will be the perfect look. 

Our personal favorite is this Uniquely Branded Safety Pin Bodycon Dress. While the bright-yellow color is giving summer-girl vibes, the four-gold safety pin detail in the front and a zipper in the back make it glam too. A good blend of viscose and polyester with a hint of spandex gives your pencil dress a comfortable fit.

Ideal for: A business party or a night out of the town with your homies!

  1. Cocktail Dress


If you’re looking for a quintessential piece of clothing that helps you be the bling of the room, a cocktail dress should be your first choice. It is the perfect excuse to experiment out of your comfort zone and play dress up with your girlfriends. 

So, what should be your criteria to buy a perfect cocktail dress? We recommend exploring women's clothing online stores like Uniquely Branded, where you can find premium-quality party dresses and an exclusive collection. Apart from the material quality, ensure that your cocktail dress fits you like a glove and highlights just the right amount of cleavage and leg. 

Take this Sheer Flared Mini Cocktail Dress, for example. It’s elegant and breathable - so you wouldn’t be spending your night feeling suffocated. Its shoestring front and the flared-out bottom are giving a hot girl vibe. Pair it with your block heels and silver dangling earrings, and you’ll be ready to rock the night.

Ideal for - A cocktail party or a friend’s bachelor party

  1. One Shoulder Dress


Wish to spice up your fashion wardrobe with a mix of sexy and sophisticated? Try a one-shoulder dress - it’s not been a fashion favorite of models and celebrities for years for no reason. You are exposing a fair amount of skin showing off the sassy you while handling yourself with grace and composure. 

Every woman should have at least one one-shoulder dress in their wardrobe. Whether your pick is flowy chiffon or sleek satin, it’ll be comfortable and flattering on your body if you style it right.

If you’re feeling bold and want to show off those chiseled shoulders and collarbones, try our Cutout Bodycon Dress. While dipped in soft blues, it has a fierceness that will make you stand out in every room. Pair it with a silver choker and long earrings to flaunt a fashionable look. Adding a small clutch and stilettos will only add to your glam. 

Ideal for A shopping spree with your girlfriends or an evening coffee date with your beau.

  1. Halter Dress 


Fashion experts always suggest that women should have more timeless classics in their collections. If you’re seeking such attire, a halter dress is a must-have. It offers a perfect opportunity to show off your arms and shoulders. However, the show-stealer is the high neckline that fastens around the back of the neck and the elegant open back.

Halter dresses are a popular choice in warmer weather. The open back and bare shoulders give you much-needed relief in the summers and make you look cool and super-hot! Now that’s a combination we all want, don’t we?

We have lately been swooning over this Bowknot Halter Dress! Pay attention to the knot detail at the midriff and the golden chain at the lower back. The lovely polyester silhouette will keep you breezy and comfortable all day long. Not to forget the high slit at the front that’s giving major fashion goals!
