Now, let’s take a look at some of the best dresses on Amazon that are purse friendly and will be in style for many seasons.

asymmetric hem

At 40plusstyle we love asymmetry to add a point of difference to your outfits or to create a more pleasing silhouette. The Donna Morgan dress (below) is one of the best Amazon dresses I’ve found, and comes in a choice of colors and could be worn for work or an evening out. Reviewers say it is a beautiful color, fit and fabric.

floral

Wrap dresses tend to be universally flattering for all body types as they form an elongating “V” at the neckline while showing off the waist, or creating one. I also like the asymmetry on the hem of the DKNY faux wrap dress (below).
