Oasis Midi Dress ($123)

Asos is my favorite place to buy occasion and casual dresses.  Hands down.  Bar none.  This dress has a little drama in the back, and I love it.  It would be perfect for dinner and drinks or cocktail hour at a work conference.

If you’re looking for a dress that can go from the office to happy hour, try this black and white pencil dress.  It has a cap sleeve and defined waist.  I also like this black and white print midi dress.

Prefer a little color in your life?  This orange, twist front crepe dress is awesome.  I also like this flame red dress with a kimono sleeve and a cut-out back.  This teal tulip dress with a wrap front is lovely.  And don’t miss this textured Bardot dress with a slight off-the-shoulder, it’s perfect for summer weddings.

Plus-size: This crochet dress has a lovely boho feel.  I also like this teal midi-dress with a peplum.  Petite: This obi wrap dress is sweet, and this square neck pencil dress is chic.  Tall: This racerback peplum is ah-may-zing.

    I’ve always loved the breadth of the choice at asos. They have work wear, evening wear, super cheap F21 type stuff, and super nice stuff too.

      (And they offer stuff in a really wide range of sizes! Brownie points for being a good fashion citizen.)

        They do a good job of having lots of sizes, and they have maternity. Plus, there isn’t a price point you can’t shop in. I wish more retailers saw this and used it as a model.

    The link for the orange twist front crepe dress instead goes to orange culottes on ASOS’ page. Pretty sure you didn’t mean those…

      Oh man, those are hideous. Add a fanny pack and you’d fit right in with the summer tourists on the Mall.

      NOT AGAIN! I’m sorry about this guys, I’ve complained to shop style about it. I’ll take care of it.

        After a very indulgent weekend, it is a tad snug in the rump (although would be a killer date dress). Debating whether it can be remedied with Spanx or a slip (it is unlined) or whether I need to size up. Possibly both.

    Love the white and yellow dress! I am a big fan of architectural clothing, but it’s hard to find affordable pieces. Any advice?

      British retailers usually do a better job. Oasis is Brit. If you have some money to spend, try Karen Millen.

    The link to the obi wrap dress is also broken. I’m getting an orange leotard instead. I’m assuming you didn’t mean to link to that either!
