A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment). In Western culture, dresses are usually considered to be items of women's and girls' apparel.

In the fashion context, "dress" typically refers to a one-piece garment that covers the body from the shoulders down to the legs or ankles. Dresses come in a wide range of styles, lengths, materials, and colors, and can be worn for a variety of occasions. Here are some examples of different types of dresses:

  1. Maxi dress - a floor-length dress typically made of lightweight, flowing fabric
  2. Little black dress - a classic, versatile dress that can be dressed up or down
  3. Wrap dress - a dress with a front closure formed by wrapping one side across the other and knotting the attached ties
  4. Shift dress - a simple, straight-cut dress that hangs from the shoulders and does not cinch at the waist
  5. Bodycon dress - a tight-fitting dress that hugs the body's curves
  6. A-line dress - a dress that is fitted at the top and flares out gradually towards the hemline, creating an A-shape
  7. Midi dress - a dress with a hemline that falls midway between the knee and ankle
  8. Slip dress - a dress with spaghetti straps and a straight, flowing silhouette that resembles an undergarment

Other similar garments that are related to dresses include:

  1. Skirts - a separate garment worn on the lower half of the body, often paired with a top or blouse
  2. Jumpsuits - a one-piece garment that covers both the top and bottom half of the body, often with a cinched waistline
  3. Rompers - a one-piece garment similar to a jumpsuit, but with shorts instead of pants
  4. Tunics - a loose-fitting, often flowy top that can be worn on its own or with pants or leggings
  5. Kaftans - a loose, flowy garment that falls to the ankles, often worn as a cover-up over swimwear or as a dress
