Dress It Up

Dresses you need right now

By Aonika Laurent Thomas

Prairie Dress

I know the first thought is Laura Ingalls Wilder from Little House On the Prairie and that image isn’t exactly a sexy one. However, the prairie dress shouldn’t be overlooked. Ultra feminine is always on trend. High neck, texture mixing, ruffles, voluminous sleeves and skirts are in most cases walking art. This one-and-done can be worn edgy with sneakers or booties. Why not continue the feminine look throughout with a pump? My favorites are The Vampires Wife & Batsheva for a splurge, or budget friendly Zara and Other Stories offer gorgeous prairie dresses that are anything but frumpy and a whole lot of feminine fun.

Wrap Dress

I can make an argument for wrap dresses all day long. It’s highly functional, versatile, flattering on all silhouettes, slimming, and effortlessly sexy. Wrap dresses can transition from day to night, the office to a dinner, a wedding to a brunch. The options are limitless. DVF is the queen of wrap dresses and rightfully so. You simply can’t go wrong.

Shirt Dress

A shirt dress is typically a button up shirt long enough to be dress. This easy dress is a must. The shirt-dress used to be thought of as a casual dress to be paired with sneakers or sandals but you can take this dress to new heights. Adding a belt and heels for the office or over-the-knee boots for a fun night out.


The little black dress is elegant, classy and never out of style. Your LBD will save you in a pinch. Carrying you through most occasions it’s easy to re-style and repeat.

  1. Thank you!! Going to 80th Birthday Saturday!!

  2. I really enjoyed your show today. I have had my mother living with me and have been tortured by FOX NEWS 24/7 when she was here. It’s all she would watch. I am now back to MY morning shows. The Black suit with silver accents locked very nice today. The fashion show was awesome. I have never shopped at Burlington, but will be going in a couple hours. The faux leather coat and red palazzo pants is what I will be looking for. Thank you for putting a smile on my face in the am, informing me of issues, interviews of fantastic people & giving kudos to everyday people. You are greatly appreciated!
