Invest in a statement dress that can be worn throughout the entire year – from summer, to fall, to winter to your resort vacation. I know that sounds a little wack and hard, but I promise it is something that is attainable. It just takes a little bit of creativity…that is where I come in.
First things first, I think sticking to florals or some kind of romantic pattern helps because florals have turned into almost a neutral or like a new version of animal print and usually they have an array of different colors so you can use that to your advantage. For example, since this floral print has some gold and brown tones, I used that as my accent color and added some brown/grey boots. For vacation, I would probably pull from the coral in the florals an add a bright lip and a strappy neutral gladiator sandal.
Also, dresses don’t have to only be worn by themselves, use them as a layering component. As seen here, I took a Free People lace dress (or a Lace top would work just as well, I just couldn’t find mine ATM) and threw on my favorite floral Zimmermann dress. To make it appropriate for the fall and winter, I added OTK the boots and a wool coat.
