Classic clothing that has been refined by today's trends defines the Theory fashion brand. The New York City-based label takes pride in designing sophisticated clothing and accessories for women that offer flawless fit with a contemporary flair. Theory has over 220 retail locations and boasts a robust global presence with about a billion dollars in sales around the world. Stars like Diane Kruger, Rihanna, Olivia Wilde and Tilda Swinton have all worn a Theory ensemble on the red carpet and looked crisp and polished and camera-ready. Luxurious fabrics that are comfortable and captivating to the eye make for the ideal Theory dress.

The Double-Breasted Mini is a wonderful example of star style with exquisite tailoring. The Theory Dress offers a classic silhouette with a timeless tuxedo design in a rich wool blend twill fabric. Details like peak lapels and a buckle-fastening belt add great accents to this simple midnight blue dress. The frock is ideal for formal events, and when a casual engagement is on tap, ankle boots soften the look for a modern chicness.

Another Theory dress option is the Flare Dress, an elegant cocktail dress in a shiny black ponte knit. The sleeveless frock in the shade of carmine red features a mini dress cut with a crew neck and A-line silhouette. It is the ideal kind of LBD welcome at fancy events. Another cocktail dress that turns heads is the Tadayon V-neck Dress in a rich linen blend fabric. The sleeveless dress features delicate pleating with an asymmetrical hem and a plunging v-neckline.

A Theory dress in the classic Off-the-Shoulder style is a cozy wool knit midi in gray. The dress features a wide fold over bodice with long sleeves in a figure-hugging design. The ribbed cuffs and hem add a nice touch, and the merino wool base is luxe. The dress even looks cute with a pair of kicks. A Theory dress offers contemporary fashion with a classic touch and looks glamorous season after season.
