This title is a little "out there" I know… but to be honest, this post is meant to show you how something that may not look like it would fit well or be flattering on the body, can definitely work with a little bit of creativity. When I first saw this dress online, I won a giveaway and had a hard time picking out something from the boutique I won it from. This dress jumped out at me, but in the pictures it looked like it was going to be so frumpy. But I ordered it anyway because I loved the colors and print! I always ask myself this before I buy something. "Do I need a belt, or do I need to wear this piece with a specific skirt or pant silhouette"? This is why I LOVE what I do and styling is something that comes to me in a natural way and it is fun for me! This dress was a perfect opportunity for me to get creative from winning a giveaway and show you some a bit of my tricks and how my mind works.
Read below to see how in 3 easy steps, I took this very unflattering and shapeless dress and made it to work for me! What do you think?
Dress: Collide Boutique / Coat: Kensie / Shoes: BCBG
*Style Tips From Start To Finish*
1. In the first look, the dress is worn by itself and you can see that it is shapeless, too big and frumpy. This style dress looks almost like grandma pajamas, however I saw the big picture when I saw it online and saw something really great about it.
2. In the second look, a simple headscarf tied in a bow and a studded black belt give shape to this dress and truly transform this dress to my body type. Just what it needed!
3. In the 3rd look, with the simple add-on of a long jacket with a peter pan collar, the belt and the hair tie make this look complete. This now works well for the office or for dinner out somewhere really nice. ;)
So, what do you think of this style session? Do you see how something so frumpy can take on an entirely new look with 3 simple add-ons?
Thanks for reading and have a fabulous day!
