LONG LIVE THE DRESS!
Fashion trends come and go but many dress styles stand the test of time, year after year. A beautiful dress that becomes a strong wardrobe staple is often less about latest trends and more about luxurious, quality fabrications and silhouettes that work for you. Dresses can be wonderfully flattering if chosen to complement your colour palette and in a garment style that suits your shape. At Jipsi Cartel, we believe that there is a dress for everyone and have curated a beautiful collection of swoon worthy dresses that will have you floating through your days.

WHY DRESSES ARE FOREVER
Whether it be a shorter play dress or a floor sweeping, dreamy silhouette, dresses are romantic, whimsical, and closely connected to your personal taste, making them attractive to the wearer, year after year. Forever in fashion, in one form or other, dresses are classic and hold a timeless quality. Often adorned with beautiful, nature inspired prints, a dress can celebrate seasons and transcend time.

Not only is a dress a stand-alone “throw-on-and-go” piece, offering effortless style, but many dresses can take you from season to season and be adapted to suit a variety of events with a little layering and accessorising. In cooler weather, try experimenting with the versatility of your dress by pairing with boots, scarves, jackets, vests or by adding under layers such as leggings.

In the warmer months, a dress can often be worn on its own, however don’t underestimate the endless outfit potential of wearing the same dress many ways. Fine adjustments such as killer heels, stunning jewellery or a statement bag or hat can transform a dress and elevate its formality. With a little tweaking, that favourite day time dress just became a perfect option for date night.
