Women Must Dress is a 1935 American romantic comedy film directed by Reginald Barker and starring Minna Gombell and Gavin Gordon. It was produced and co-written by the former silent film actress Dorothy Davenport, who had been working as a producer since the death of her husband Wallace Reid in 1923. The film was a rare leading role for Gombell, and marked the film debut of Jon Hall, albeit under his birth name Charles Locher.


Linda Howard discovers that her husband is having an affair and takes their young adult daughter Janet away to start a new life. Linda becomes a successful fashion designer but begins to re-examine her own life choices when Janet forsakes her successful-but-bland doctor boyfriend for a faster, more loose set of companions.


Copyright has lapsed since the original theatrical run of Women Must Dress, and the film is now in public domain.
