Dresses can be worn for all kinds of occasions and styled in so many ways to look sporty, formal, dressy or casual. We have the perfect dresses for every summer event and occasion. But if you’re thinking that dresses are only for summer, think again. With a knitted jumper, a jacket and sturdy boots, your summer dress can be worn throughout the autumn and winter.
Dresses for every occasion
Dresses are always a good choice, and depending on the design, you can wear a dress in an infinite number of ways. In summer, silk dresses are a firm favourite for more formal occasions. Linen dresses are a cool and casual choice for relaxing holidays by the sea. Our shirt dress and patterned dresses are great for wearing to the office. Wrap dresses are a firm favourite with many people and suit a range of body shapes and occasions. In winter, long-sleeve dresses add extra warmth.
Our materials and fabrics
Different materials and fabrics give each dress a different look. A shirt dress looks elegant if it's made of silk, and casual if it's made of cotton terry or denim. Stenströms’ range of dresses is available in materials such as linen, cotton, Tencel, viscose and silk, and in fabrics such as denim and cotton terry.
Different colours, cuts and styles
Dresses are comfortable and provide an entire outfit in one piece. Stenströms has dresses in a range of designs and styles so you can find your perfect fit: sleek, beautiful silk dresses with a heavenly drape in stunning colours, figure-flattering wrap dresses, light and flowing linen summer dresses, and formal shirt dresses.
What style of dress should I wear to work?
A shirt dress can give a more formal look and is ideal for the office. Shirt dresses can also be worn open with a top underneath and with suit trousers. Wrap dresses are a classic that give a chic and stylish feel. A neck scarf adds the finishing touch.
How to style a party dress
Dresses are always a good choice for parties and special occasions. Stenströms has various designs to suit every occasion, from casual parties to the most formal events. And when it comes to more elegant and dressy occasions, such as weddings, we suggest one of our silk dresses, which are simple and flattering, yet exude a luxurious vibe without stealing the show. Pair with some low heels and beautiful jewellery and you're ready to dance the night away.
How to style a dress for everyday wear
For lazy summer or autumn days in the countryside, a casual dress is a trusted friend. In summer, dresses require minimal styling and don't need much more than a sun hat and leather sandals. In cooler weather, combine your casual dress with knitted tights, sturdy boots, and a knitted jumper or vest.
Which dress style suits your body?
Wrap dresses are the most figure-flattering dresses, which is why they are so popular. A straight cut dress can be styled with a belt or ribbon at the waist or under the bust to enhance your curves. Experiment to find the perfect style for your shape.
What fabric should I choose for my dress?
Different materials give your dress a different look and feel. Cotton is a slightly more rigid material and is suitable for things like shirt dresses and wrap dresses. Silk is a luxurious material that has a natural sheen and a beautiful, flowing drape. Tencel and linen are light, cool and comfortable materials that are ideal for summer dresses.
When is it OK to wear a short-sleeved dress?
Short-sleeved dresses are, of course, popular in summer and can be worn for everyday use as well as for parties, so choose the style according to the occasion. If your arms are cold, add a knitted jumper.
