STYLE ADVICE: One multi-tasking occasion dress two ways

Posted on: April 7, 2016

2016-03-02-1dress-2ways-RTIf those invitations to spring weddings, garden parties and holiday fiestas are pouring in and you find yourself having a mild what-to-wear fashion panic….stop and breathe. If you invest in one dress you love and multi-task your accessories and cover-ups around it you can work your way stylishly through your summer events. This works the other way around too – if you already have a dress in your wardrobe, no matter how simple, look to using new accessories to give it a different mood per occasion. Case in hand this gorgeous fit-and-flare Phase Eight dress. Blend in neutral heels and a glimmer of gold (the headpiece) with a fabulous multi-tasking white jacket and you’ll be race-goer or wedding-guest perfect. Channel a catwalk trend to give your dress a completely different spin. Dabble in the haute hippie mood by adding colourful textures and patterns. Be careful, this pattern on pattern thing can be tricky as you could end up looking like a magpie’s nest…so…if you do want to try this print-on-print look with something you have, stick to the same key colour (in this case blue) and make sure your prints/patterns are all keeping to the haute hippie flavour as opposed to a mash-up of trends. Having said that, you can just as well add only one of these pieces in a your lust-have trend – the bag or the heels – and it will give your dress a new lease on life. The denim jacket is an after thought. One I have had many times as I have dashed out the house to a dinner or a daytime party and thought to myself ,“I need a little jacket but don’t want to look too formal”, and subsequently find myself reaching for my denim jacket. A leather biker style will do the trick too. Give it a whirl. Natalie x
