These 20 Simple Dresses Are the Ultimate Wardrobe Staples

Let's get one thing straight: Although it can be incredibly tempting to buy all of the latest and greatest of fashion trends making it big in the fashion world, nothing beats those staple pieces that are, well, trendless. Their simple, classic design withstands time and trends, which means you can wear said items season after season without feeling like they've become, outdated. What's more, staples boast a great cost per wear and can be styled in countless ways, so it's actually quite easy to make one look like an entirely different piece in seconds.

Now, what are some timeless wardrobe staples you should invest in? A good pair of jeans in a classic wash is one. A refined blazer with a perfectly oversize fit is another. Lastly, it's always a wise decision to scoop up a handful of simple dresses that can be worn in the office, for a day of running errands, or at a brunch get-together with your besties.

So skip all the embellishments and hard-to-pair prints this season, and pick a simple, easy frock that boasts endless styling possibilities. In other words, pick something to act as a blank canvas for you to express your creativity.

Below, we've rounded up our favorite simple dresses on the market that we know you'll be happy to have hanging in your closet come spring and summer. Read on to see and shop our selection.
