As for wearability, I wanted to show off the pattern of this darling dress a bit. Before this month, I haven't had new clothes in a really long time, but I get really bored with my clothes pretty quickly. It's a horrid thing, one that can easily lead to a shopping addiction, tehe. But over the summer I really started experimenting with my clothes, trying to love them again. & One thing I started doing was mix & match layers.
Now, this is a dress, so it's perfect for easily making different outfits. I've shown off how I wear this as a skirt, as a blouse & as the dress itself. I'm quite the patriotic gal, but even without that, I really like red & blue together. Especially these shades.
So for the first outfit in the sequence, with the dress as a skirt, I chose a lacy-satin teal blouse & a thick black belt to go with. I was lucky that this dress unbuttoned quite a bit at the top so I could just fold it inside itself and actually wear it as a skirt. Sometimes that doesn't always work, but here it did :] Then I just tucked the shirt into the now-skirt & put on the belt. Now, as this isn't how the dress was meant to be worn, I find that if I don't wear a stretchy-form fitting belt, it falls. But I think this is actually my favorite way of wearing the dress right now. I love the length & the pattern!
For the second outfit, I kept it as a dress & simply added a sweet-baby belt. Easy-peasy. But just the perfect touch to breakup all of that fun, but intense pattern.
For the third, I just slid the blue skirt over the dress, & added the belt. Now my absolute favorite part about this outfit is that when the wind blows or I twirl around a bit, there's a hint of the pattern of the dress peaking out under the skirt. So fun!
With all of that said, I'd give this dress a 5/5 on the wearability scale, it's quite perfect!
How would you accessorize this dress? Have you ever swapped an outfit around like this? What's your favorite of the three outfits? Hope you are well, darlings!
