One Dress, Five WaysJune 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 dayor everywhere“either. Using just one dressthe versatile Freyapersonal shopper Christina put together five amazing looks for every occasion.
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 flatssneakers 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 colorwe’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 layerswe’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 printsstripes and dotsare 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.
