There is no denying that a well-put together outfit requires a lot of effort — mixing and matching accessories, trying different fabrics and silhouettes and then hours of preening in front of the mirror trying to make sure that it’s good to go.

However, sometimes all it takes is just one statement piece to give you the killer look that you need. These dresses will be your go to pieces when you are strapped for time in the morning, or you have got a party to crash at the eleventh hour. Bold prints with easy-to-wear silhouettes, you don’t even have to spend time accessorising!

We have shortlisted 5 pieces that we love!

1. Column polyester dress, $929 from Melissa Looi

This eclectic dress is perfect for days when you need to make a statement at an event, but are clueless as to what to wear. The inspiration for the print came from the paintings of Brazilian artist Andre Mendes. Vibrantly hued brush strokes on the front bodice contrast with monochromatic doodles on the back, so be prepared to turn heads.
