One Dress, Five Ways

June 20, 2013

There’s nothing better than a wear-it-everywhere, do-it-all, throw-on-and-go dress, especially in the humdrum, hottest dregs of summer. And no need to wear it the same way every dayor everywhere“either. Using just one dressthe versatile Freyapersonal shopper Christina put together five amazing looks for every occasion.


Work It
Å“Dressing this up for work is simple. Just add a sophisticated belt to camouflage the casualness of a drawstring waist. Layer it over a camisole, then pair with a structured white jacket, a closed-toe heel and simple jewelry for instant office-ready polish.


Out and About
Å“Laid-back doesn’t have to mean unadorned. For a trip around town (on or off a bike) we’ve topped it off with a chambray button-down, tied at the waist, and kept it casual with flatssneakers work here, too. Add bright, happy accessories like a floral headwrap and a beaded bag for an easy on-the-go look that’s as stylish as it is functional.


A Date or a Daydream
Å“The one thing you’ll really need for this less-is-more approach to layering is a pop of brilliant colorwe’ve used a vivid tasseled wrap you can wear, carry, or allow to fall effortlessly off your shoulder when flirting to bring out the drama in this dress. Keep jewelry light, wear a flattering wedge and don’t forget to add a little mystery with sophisticated sunnies.


On the Road
Å“The subtle structure of this dress, paired with its lightweight fabric, is perfect for travel. The drawstring waist gives you more room to play with layerswe’ve put it over a sleeveless tailored chambray button-down. Add a graphic necklace for a pop of color, a comfortable wedge and a cross-body bag and you’re already put together before you even arrive.


Picnic in the Park
Å“Classic printsstripes and dotsare a great way to bring out the playful aspect of this dress. A graphic clutch or print bag adds a nice touch of mixed-print personality and fun! Throw on a few bracelets, and, in this case, any shoe will do, from sandals to sneaker to a wedge.
