1 Dress, 4 Ways to Style

Hi Everyone,

Many of us are currently in festive clothing mode. Desperately stuffing wardrobes with yet another party dress so we don’t always look as though we’re always wearing the same thing. Others of us (i.e. self) are currently in the “stuffed wardrobe but nothing to wear” mode. Both modes have led to me writing this post in the aim of driving a little more creative inspiration into all our veins – smile!

Mission of the day – to inspire you to make the most out of your every dress in your wardrobe.

1 Dress, 4 Ways to Style

The maxi printed dress is here for a little. If you don’t own one yet it’s not too late to get one now. Choose a slightly thinner fabric so you can also wear it in Spring.

1. Blazer and matching headband

Seems like such an easy way to style this maxi dress. However the power of the matching headband is not to be underestimated. Without it this look only has half the impact.

To calm the nerves these pictures were taken at the end of a sleepy line…


2. Cinched at the waist and teamed with camel

This is how I would wear a maxi dress into the office or for a more formal occasion. Note the pumps making the dress that little bit more feminine.


3. Fitted black statement sweater

Black high neck sweaters with white lace sticking out are a hot theme this season. It seems to be the current tribute to Karl…

I like to add a baker boy hat for extra effect. My favourite cold day look as this sweater is so cosy and you still see bits of my shape.


4. Bulky knit and belt bag

A cosy, very in trend look for sure, especially with a pretty blue bulky knit. You have to be careful to maintain proportions with this knit. I have exactly one photo to show as with the others I had worn it too low and the proportions looked silly…

You might laugh but my favourite way to wear this knit is at home over pyjama shorts – it makes me feel like a cosy warm teenager – smile!
