Check out how we would style this wardrobe staple with these 5 outfits with out dress!
For a perfect day-to-night ensemble with a little bit of attitude, throw on a leather biker jacket and ankle boots. The dress hits mid calf and perfectly shows off a statement shoe so opt for something a little bit left of center for maximum impact. Dramatic jewelry and dark accessories perfectly tie together this punchy look.
Are you more flower-power than mosh-pit? For a perfect casual daytime outfit, pair this dress with tan accessories and nude make up. We love the addition of natural textures like straw and suede to tone down the dress and make it appropriate for even the most casual of occasions, like a picnic in the park or a grocery run. Top it off with simple, dainty accessories and voila, bohemian goddess.
Going somewhere? For a smooth transition into cocktail attire we suggest cinching the waist with an interesting belt and upping the glam in the accessories department - think gold, silver and jewel tones. Avoid chunky heels and opt for daintier styles to compliment the simple spaghetti straps and feminine silk of the dress. Perfect for a New Years Eve party or overpriced cocktails at your favorite fancy bar.
Want comfort but don’t want to sacrifice style? Pair some low key slides with your trusty denim jacket and you are good to go. Perfect for long walks through the city or cram sessions at college. For extra edge throw on a backpack and an on trend belt.
This outfit is all about layers and structure. To make the dress appropriate for a corporate environment it is important that we cover the décolletage and add some structure. To achieve this, opt for a cashmere sweater layered under an oversized jacket or blazer. Throw on some point toe heels and your favorite classic watch and you are set to take on the world.
Have we convinced you yet? The mid length, camisole silhouette of this dress makes it perfect for layering, belting and accessorizing and if you find a version of this style that fits you perfectly – buy it! Styled with a little imagination this is a piece that will last you for years and your wallet will thank you for it.
