Dresses are one of my favorite things to wear because they’re so easy! I recently purchased this plaid dress from Akira, isn’t it amazing?! Unfortunately, this dress is sold out but here’s a similar option. Let me show you how to get the most out of your dresses with some of my favorite styling tips.
Add a Leather Jacket
Anytime you throw on a leather jacket it adds edginess to your look. Whether you wear the jacket traditionally or just hanging over your shoulders, it’s the perfect way to elevate the style of the dress in an instant.
Layer Under the Dress
Typically when we think of layering we often think about layering OVER pieces however when making the most of a dress I suggest trying to layer under the dress as well. One of my favorite ways to style a sleeveless dress is by wearing a white shirt underneath. Similar to what I wore here.
Pair with Sneakers
More often than not when wearing dresses most of us think about being dressed up, but they are great for casual wear as well. One of my favorite ways to add a casual twist is to pair them with white sneakers.
Layer Over the Dress
Layering OVER is another great way to make the most of a dress. In the winter I love to wear a sweater over dresses to create a skirt type of look. Plus, it’s an easy way to add extra warmth on chilly days.
Don’t Forget Accessories
Hats and fun sunnies are my favorite way to accessorize dresses during the winter. Both types of accessories are functional for the chilly winter weather in Chicago, and they also add an extra cool effect to the look.
