The recommended dresses, including a flowy smocked bodice maxi dress, crochet-style maxi dress, high-neck column midi dress, scoopneck slip midi dress, and denim column midi dress, cater to various occasions and body types. The author encourages smart shopping and confident styling.

The pop up colors, pretty solids, and fun floral prints are the essence of the season.

It isn’t always necessary to follow the trends, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t either. My goal is to lead you to clothing that is literally timeless.

Recently, I went on a shopping haul at ABERCROMBIE and after a lot of effort, I found 5 amazing dresses that you should buy right now. These dresses are so cute and perfect for various occasions.

For us over-40-gals there are a lot of options to dress elegantly, but here are the ones from ABERCROMBIE.

So, let’s get into it!

Smocked Bodice Maxi Dress

This dress is to die for!

I got it in red, because that’s my color, but there are 5 variations to choose from.

The fabric is incredible—flowy and crinkled, and the dress does not need to be ironed. The adjustable straps come with a beautiful detail making it kind of sexy in the back, but in a modest and classy way.

The bodice has a shirring back, which means it will stretch and fit you perfectly.

The print, as you can see, is not too busy, just the right amount of summertime floral. I find the cut and pattern to be slimming which is a feature that always makes me happy!

Paired with white, nude, or black sandals and heels you can wear this dress to a tea party, or a daytime hangout, or a date. On a vacation, you can wear it to a nice lunch or even dinner. Just love this one so much, so versatile.

Crochet-Style Maxi Dress BEST SELLER


This one is a mix of trending style and timelessness.

Crochet dresses are super fun to experiment with and this ABERCROMBIE one is super classy. There are two variations to choose from. The black on white and white on black, I needed both!

This texture and shape will hug your body perfectly at your true size, so consider sizing up if you want a more skimming effect.

I got the white in a large originally (pictured below) but then opted for an XL and just love it! I have received so many compliments on this unique and pretty dress.

The lining is a little above the knees so it covers really well. The straps are not adjustable, so it is what it is. Of course you can alter, but I find it isn’t too revealing. The length I’m wearing is in the Tall option and it covers my ankles, which I just love!

Typically, I wear a large, but I found that sizing up to an XL provided a more comfortable fit. The length I’m wearing is in the Tall option and it covers my ankles, which I just love!

Overall it’s a 10/10 dress and you should snag it for sure! If you see it in stock.

High-Neck Column Midi Dress


The dress features a flattering A-line silhouette that suits various body types. The lightweight fabric ensures comfort, making it perfect for warm weather. This versatile piece can be dressed up with heels and accessories for a wedding guest outfit or paired with sandals for a casual summer outfit.

So, black is our happy color, right?

Even if it’s summer, we still want a nice black dress.

Well, don’t you worry, I’ve got you covered!

This is a high-neck column dress and it’s graceful and modest. The fabric is lightweight and covers really well, giving you a sense of comfort and elegance. You can pair it with black strappy heels or flat sandals and accessorize it anyway you like.

As you can see in the picture that it fits really well, yet leaves some room. The high-neck leaves space for longer chains or chunky ones, if that is more your style.

The length is really impressive and you can wear it on a night out, to a party or layer it up anyway you want. I find this dress to be very versatile for many occasions. A true closet staple.

Scoopneck Slip Midi Dress Online Exclusive

This dress is not only stylish but also incredibly versatile. It can be worn repeatedly with different accessories and shoes, making it a staple in any wardrobe.

This dress is a floral treat.

The ivory backdrop and pretty floral details make it look pretty and soft on the eyes.

Now, I love scoop-necks and I think for us over-40 girlies, this is one of the best necklines. It is sexy, and classy in an age-defying yet appropriate way. The fabric is very breezy and summery.

It has a slit on the back and a zipper with a hook closure. The straps are adjustable. The overall silhouette is quite fitted.

My styling trick for it would be with beige heels or sandals and you can wear it on a day out, or on a vacation and trust me you will turn heads.

The secret to its charm lies in its versatility and timeless appeal.

Denim Column Midi Dress Best Seller Online Exclusive


This one is yet another very classy and modest option!

This denim dress has two variations to choose from. It has a nice square neckline and a back zipper, making it a perfect addition to your house wardrobe.

I will tell you now that there is no stretch at all. So this can be a good thing or a bad thing. The denim is thick and rigid, so it does help at holding everything in, but if you can’t zip it, then you can’t zip it, there’s no stretch! So, you have to get your size right. If you’re considering leather pants, make sure to get your regular size for the best fit.

If you’re someone who likes bodycon dresses and shapers, it is going to be your best pick this season.

This 100% cotton is quality and the length is classy.

The silhouette is quite fitted but since the material is thick you can’t see every ripple, dimple, and roll.

It will look great with sandals as pictured or dress it up with some strappy heels and a stunning purse and have fun while accessorizing it.

PS. I got it in the wrong size, if you have my physique, go for a X-Large one.

Having nice clothes and styling them the best way possible will give you a confidence boost; trust me, I know. I buy and try these dresses to help you look and feel your best.

In the summer, we all feel a pressure to bear a little more and still look nice and I’m here to take that pressure away from you. Keep following my style guidelines and show the world what you’re made of.

The dresses I listed above will look good on you regardless of your shape and size. They are affordable, but you can wear them on those occasions when you’re looking for something nice to wear.

I’ll see you in my next blog with more reviews.

Until then, shop smart, ladies!
