This blog post came to me pretty quickly. As I write these post I learn from them, but I also have to constantly remind myself to write about things I look for and want to read about in my own time. For instance, I love seeing how other people style different things. Style is a unique thing and I love how you can start with one basic piece of clothing and style it so many different ways just by changing the smallest things. For instance, this mid length black dress. Simple. Everyone seems to have something like this in their closet. And the best part is it is so easy to wear during these hot summer days.
With that said I thought I would pass along three simple ways to style this little black dress and you will notice that it totally takes the look in three different directions. My goal here is for you to think… [oh yea, I already own something like that, let me try!]
Pull out one of your “fallish” looking kimonos or dusters. Make sure it is one that is light weight but maybe it has darker colorings to it. Notice as soon as you pair it with a summer black dress it instantly takes a lighter, easy flowy look. Add wedges or sandals and you have your look!
Pull out a SUMMER Kimono. One that maybe has big prints or bold colors. Since your basic is black you can really go with any colors. This will give the look more of a summer feel and if you pair it with wedges or heels you can even give it that more dressed up look.
Add a scarf. You can really use any scarf you want but sometimes the light weight ones that are a bit longer and wider work best. Wrap it however you wish but I think the best look is to just drape it over your shoulders and let it hang. The best part with this is you have the ability to get rid of the scarf easily if you get too hot. Add some wedges or sandals and you have a different look with the same basic.
