National Dress Day 2023: Date, History, Activities

On March 6, National Dress Day, we celebrate the most versatile and enjoyable piece of clothing — the dress! The day was founded by fashion designer Ashley Lauren to honour dresses and the magical moments that occur when we wear them. “I remember the dresses I wore to my high school prom, my first job interview, my first date, when I competed in a beauty pageant, and my first red carpet event,” she says. This is an enjoyable occasion to cherish and commemorate those memories.

The background of National Dress Day

Is there something more comfortable than a dress to wear? The answer is no, and you need only examine fashion throughout history and around the world to realise that dresses are superior! Throughout history, men, women, and children have worn variations of the dress, and in many warm countries, men wear dresses, also known as tunics, to stay cool. There are so many types of dresses that there is one for every occasion! There are dresses for sleeping, lounging around the house, playing sports, working, playing, and, of course, the most important events in our lives, such as prom dresses, wedding gowns, and red carpet gowns. Dresses can be both practical and aesthetically pleasing. Dresses by renowned designers can be considered works of art, and some of the world’s most prestigious museums have displayed them to showcase their beauty and craftsmanship. They may be embroidered, hand-beaded, hand-stitched, and crafted from the highest quality materials.


Remember your dresses

The day was created to celebrate and commemorate the dresses in our lives. Take this opportunity to peruse your closet and old photographs and recall the dresses you wore to your most memorable events. Make a list of your favourite dresses or create a Facebook collage.

Don a dress

Wearing a dress is the simplest way to celebrate National Dress Day. Due to the month of March, it may be cold where you live, and you may have been wearing pants for several months. Use the occasion as an excuse to pull out your favourite dress, regardless of how springlike it may be, pair it with leggings or tights, and create new memories while wearing it.

Ask a close friend or member of the family about her favourite dresses.

Asking a friend or relative about her favourite dresses is a great way to learn more about someone. Call your grandmother and inquire about her favourite dresses from her youth, or ask your mother whether she remembers shopping for her high school graduation gown. Include your friends in the fun! Invite Facebook friends to discuss their favourite dresses.
