This woman has a dress-only closet! Here’s why she says it’s the most comfortable style piece

A dress might just be the most versatile piece of clothing!

Brittany Jepsen is known for her vibrant Instagram presence on House That Lars Built. Renowned for her crafty and colorful content, Brittany’s signature style is her flowery, flowy dresses, which she wears exclusively. In fact, she says she hasn’t worn pants in over a decade.

Brittany shared why she thinks the dress is the way to go, and how she finds the perfect pieces to add to her closet.


Comfort and Polish

Brittany believes dresses are the most comfortable item of clothing, and, they give you an effortlessly polished look. She feels that dresses are not only prettier, but are just as easy as wearing something as comfortable as pajamas while looking put-together. The combination of comfort and style makes dresses the perfect every day go to.

Versatility for Every Occasion

Dresses, according to Brittany, work for any event. Whether it’s attending church, a soccer game, or a grocery run, a dress can be the perfect outfit. With the right accessories, dresses can adapt to whatever your day has in store.

The Unspoken Dress Code

Brittany touched on the concept of a ‘CEO uniform,’ akin to Steve Jobs’ iconic black turtleneck and jeans. She suggested that having a go-to dress as a personal uniform simplifies picking outfits every day, while keeping up a consistent and recognizable style.

Seasonal Adaptability

Brittany emphasized that dresses can work for any season. Layering with coats and scarves can transition a spring dress into winter, while lighter materials and sandals can make the same dress perfect for summer.

Shopping for the Perfect Dress

With a decade of experience, Brittany shared her expertise for dress shopping. She advised looking for interesting sleeves, pockets (an essential part of a good dress), and loose-fitting designs for comfort. She also believes that a good dress makes a statement and can even serve as a memento from travels.
