I was invited to a business conference on Social Networking. Since it was a professional event, I needed to dress up for it. I haven’t gotten dressed up in quite a while, so it felt refreshing to put on a suit and tie. A woman at the conference brought her 5 year old daughter. She dressed her up in a cute red dress with a bow.
Today, let’s have a look at the phrasal verb dress up

Use: A person dresses up for special occasions
Structure: dress up or dress up [someone] or dress [someone] up
- I like to dress up when I go out to eat.
- Ken dressed his daughter up for the party.
