This Spring/Summer floral, ruffles, layers and maxi all in one dress is the trend of the Seasons. Its important to know different ways of wearing such a statement dress. Especially if you’ve gone designer. You want to be able to get your cost per wear.
MULES AND MAXI
For me the mules and maxi option is my favourite. With the right heel height it makes the perfect Spring/Summer outfit. Being only 5ft it also allows me to look a little taller in the long length dress too.
Mules don’t have to be high, you can also go for the lower heeled option. It just gives you a more dressed up look. Perfect for lunch or dinner.
SHIRT UNDER THE DRESS
I found this trend on Pinterest and I love it. Its such a simple style that really does transform the look.
Perhaps on a colder Spring day, adding a layer underneath can be better than throwing on a coat. It keeps the outfit looking fresh and still Spring like.
JUMPER OVER THE DRESS
This look is another of my favourite and its a great way of taking the dress from Spring/Summer into Autumn/Winter. So when you are purchasing such a strong item for your wardrobe just remember it doesn’t have to be worn how it is shown, keep your mind open to trying or adding more layers.
