There are items in my closet that I enjoy, items I’ve fallen in love with, and pieces I’ve been completely surprised by. The ASOS Curve swing dress (and its many iterations) is hands down the most comfortable and most worn dress in my collection. 

There are certain items in our closets that we always reach for and I’m here to tell you about mine. I purchased my beloved ASOS Curve swing dress on a whim when it was marked down simply because it was too good of a deal to pass up. Little did I know that I would have my CPW, aka cost per wear, down to fractions of a cent.

I affectionately call my dress “my pizza dress”. I could eat an entire pizza and this dress would still fit. I could also smuggle an entire pizza underneath this dress and no one would ever know. I’ve worn it in peak summer heat and in the dead of winter. It pairs well with sneakers, sandals, flats, or ankle booties. For traveling, it’s the perfect outfit for flights and it packs well. It’s seasonless, effortless, and frankly, one of the best purchases that I’ve ever made. The only regret I have is that I don’t own one in every single color (but trust me, I’m keeping an eye out).

ASOS sells many different styles of swing dresses, from straight size to plus. There are mini versions and midi versions; pockets, pleats, sleeved and sleeveless. Although this isn’t the dress you’d wear to a wedding, business meeting, or on a date, it’s practically perfect for any other occasion given the right accessories. Three hundred words later, I hope I’ve made you understand how absolutely essential this style can be to your wardrobe.

If you are the proud owner of a swing dress, please tell me about your love for it in the comments below. We should start a club, or at the very least a hashtag.
