    dressing sense/dress sense

    She has a good dressing sense/dress sense.

    I like her dressing sense/dress sense.

    Which one of the phrases is correct?

    If both are correct, can either be used interchangeably or do they have different usages?

    Please clarify.

    Thanks.

    Re: dressing sense/dress sense

    She has (a) good dress sense.

    I like her dress sense.

    These are acceptable The article is not necessary in the first.

    The second is a little strange. If you say that she has good dress sense, that already implies that you like it.
