Every season there appears a new trend of dresses in the market. Back in 2017, an off-the-shoulder chambray mini-dress by Zara embellished the market. In 2019, a polka-dot dress by Zara owned the entire market due to its exalted features. Both of these dresses had affordable price tags and an attractive design to be known as “The Dress”.
