Your wardrobe needs options! I love options! I love when pieces in my wardrobe can be worn in multiple ways. Recently I picked up this beautiful dress at one of my favorite consignment stores in Grand Rapids. It's a dress by the brand Maeve, which is sold exclusively at Anthropologie. This dress in particular is a simple silhouette. It's burnished colorful burnished floral overlay with a beautiful almost persimmon patterned "slip" underneath is perfect for all seasons, I think. I bought the dress late last week and have already worn it twice! I wore it twice but made it different each time.
Here are the two ways I have worn it so far:
I love a dress over skinny jeans or leggings to give it that tunic feel. Since I'm only 5'4" I often pair this look with a wedge or platform sandal. However, I could easily put on a simple flat or dressy flat sandal and complete the look as well. For accessories I keep it simple when wearing a bright pattern like this. I added large earrings, and in the future maybe a large bangle as well.
Though the dress is no longer available, here are similar dresses from Maeve currently available along with the rest of the pieces to complete this look.
I first wore the dress (as a dress) when the Mr. and I hosted a few friends for a warm, humid evening on our patio. The ease and effortless style of the dress was perfect for the evening. Style without many accessories or worry was perfect for this casual night.
I love these two looks so far. I am already picturing the third look for early fall. The dress, brown boots, brown belt and a denim jacket will be perfect. Do you have a dress in your wardrobe you're thinking about wearing in different ways? You should shop your closet and check it out!
