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

Definition: To wear fancy or formal clothing

Use: A person dresses up for special occasions

Structure: dress up or dress up [someone] or dress [someone] up

Examples:

  • I like to dress up when I go out to eat.
  • Ken dressed his daughter up for the party.

Practice: Have you gotten dressed up recently? Do you need to get dressed up for work? Have you dressed up someone recently? Leave a comment below and let us know!
