    ...the blue dress to the pink dress/one.

    I prefer the blue dress to the pink dress/one.

    Can I use either word in bold?

    Thanks.

    You can, but tell us which you think is better before we say which we prefer.

    Hi Rover

    I prefer 'one' to 'dress' because, to me, it is better not to repeat 'dress'.

    Thanks.
