Father’s Day is an internationally recognized day that is used to show fathers just how important they are to you. It has been celebrated on the third Sunday of June since 1966.

From being the DIY handyman of the house, a personal chauffeur, an omniscient advisor, and a one-man-fan-team, fathers have donned many titles as they rear their children.

For Father’s Day this year what you wear matters. Gone are the days of having to cover up from head to toe. Instead opt for something simple, comfortable, sensible, and classy to get you through day of celebrating the dads in your life.

We love sex appeal but embrace femininity even more. For Father’s Day this year as you style your bandage dress remember to pay particular attention to the venue to ensure you are comfortable and to choose timeless styles to protect your dignity when hanging out with dad and the rest of the family.

Alternatively, if you are instead treating the father of your children to a special night out for the two of you, read our post Sultry Valentine’s Day Dresses and Styles for style tips and ideas on how to be a tease.


Recommended Basics

You probably have a closet full of this summer’s trendiest trends—from neon to glitter and everything in between.

Keep in mind that a Father’s Day celebration is likely to turn into a mini family reunion with plenty of pictures being taken for posterity. So avoid plunging necklines or colors that may clash with the style of the family.

Opt for classy and casually chic dresses for a Father’s Day brunch, lunch, or dinner to n look radiant and ageless in the pictures for decades to come.

Alternatively, if you are going to be spending the day with your husband and getaway for some more baby making time feel free to take your fashion cues from our sexy bandage dress collection.

While Mother’s Day celebrations call for an all-out dress-up fest with your mom in tow, a Father’s Day celebration falls more under the casually chic variety of events.

If you are in doubt about what to wear on this special day, take a cues from the venue. Consider where the party is being hosted? How many people are expected to show up? Is it a casual or dressy event?

Certain venues require very specific clothing such as a Father’s Day round of golf or a game of tennis with the man who taught you to play. If you are going for a ball game but do not really want to spend the day in his favorite team’s jersey, try simply supporting him by wearing a dress or a scarf in the colors of his team.


You cannot go wrong with ombre or rainbow dresses to brunch. Your style options are limitless. Not only does this sensational dress look casual yet chic, but it is also very easy to dress it up or down, depending on the venue. Similar to ombre dresses you can try a jacquard dress as their patterns can work well for day wear. 

Pair these dress types with a fitted blazer for a brunch date at his favorite club, simple pumps or stilettos, and keep your makeup fresh and youthful. The neckline of the dress is low enough to look attractive without looking over-the-top and cause disapproving looks from dad.

Tease your hair in loose beachy curls, or sweep it all off to one side while pinning it at the back for a more formal look.

Add a simple gold or silver necklace with a drop pendant, neutral pumps, and your favorite pink lipstick, and you are ready for your brunch celebration.


Your father is probably the one who ferried you to and from dates while you were growing up. Father’s Day is an opportunity to take the man himself out on a father-daughter date to celebrate everything he means to you.

A long sleeved bandage dress is the perfect outfit for a dinner date with your father. It keeps you covered, tastefully supports your feminine profiles, and is always trendy.

Complete this outfit with black pumps or heels and a darker-hued jacket or scarf. Off-shoulder dresses require very little accessories when it comes to jewelry so scan your box for whatever your mood chooses.

Backyard Get Togethers

Even if you and your dad have decided to give going out a miss, there is no reason why you cannot dress up for a backyard get together.

Why not wear a simple flared bandage dress or empire waisted maxi dress? Pair these dresses with a denim bolero for an added casual style that also keeps you warm as the night progresses.

Instead of wearing your hair in an everyday ponytail, change it up a bit by tying your ponytail higher than usual or going with a sensible slip-knot. This casual look is best carried off with ballet flats, or even a pair of strappy, knee-high gladiators in neutral colors.

Family Friendly

Though you might want to whisk your father away for some one-on-one time on Father’s Day, you are more likely to be surrounded by family from all generations.

A mini family reunion calls for a fun yet casual dress that gives you confidence and poise as daddy’s little girl. This patterned or floral dress above is ideal for maintaining innocence while showing off your kewl fashion sense. With a subtle palette of colors like white, blue, and pink, floral dresses are designed to highlight your curves and keep your mood light and approachable.

Pair your floral dress with neutral colors and grey or light pink heels. Add a simple bracelet or cuff at your wrist, and long, jeweled earrings to complete the look. Sweep your hair up in a messy bun or up-do or leave it free full of bouncy curls.

When it comes to makeup for such a printed dress dab on light eyeshadow or go for understated smokey eyes. The choices you have when styling a floral dress are endless. Check out our guide on How to Style Floral Dresses for more ideas. 

Movie Night

If you want to recreate the magic of watching movies with daddy as you were growing up, head to the theaters this Father’s Day.

And what better outfit to flaunt than a glamorous midi dress. Midi length dresses are sensible, versatile, and modest though they ensure your sexy remains intact.

These dresses are ideal for movie excursions because the styles hit just below the knees and pair great with various accessories and shoes. Pair it with gold-toned jewelry and gold or neutral heels.

Add a small clutch with enough space to carry your essentials to complete the look. Your hairstyle options are endless so just go with flow and enjoy.

Daytime Celebrations

Brighten your Father’s Day with cheerful colors and style.

Wearing color is a simple way to bring energy and warmth to the day. Choose a color that is radiant and a dress with quality material that is comfortable and molds to your body.

Longer length dresses and skirts give you a touch of modesty that is always attractive and appropriate no matter the venue. Pair your dress or outfit with pumps, a clutch purse, and a cardigan for a chic and trendy look that works throughout the day no matter where you land with dad.  If you fear color consider white.

All white ensembles have been a steady trend for a few seasons now. The little white dress is as much a closet staple now as the little black dress has been for decades.

This Father’s Day, take the style quotient up a notch by opting for an all-white outfit that is celebratory and stylish yet understated. Pair your white with simple stud earrings, a textured clutch, and comfortable pumps or sandals for a classic trendy look. As for makeup and jewelry that fits this monochrome trend, remember less is more. Let your all-white outfit speak for itself.

Often dads do not get the amount of attention that they truly deserve on Father’s Day and so this year change it up. Dress up for the occasion with style and grace and let the dads in your life know that this day is different and honorable. This Father’s Day show  him how much you care, get out of your comfort zone and do something special.
