Have You Considered a New Dress?

This time of year it's easy to begin to be tired of our current wardrobe, and this weariness is just compounded by the fact that stores are beginning to be filled with clothes for the upcoming season. What's an intelligent woman to do?

I'm suggesting, for those of us who wear dresses, that we get a new dress. Something timeless and simple, in a color that we don't always wear. Think about your existing "Accessory Families" and choose a dress that can be worn with things that you already love...

Dress – Lands’ End; (just a little bit similar, but a great dress, here); earrings – Alexis Bittar (similar here); scarf – Hermes Under the Waves; cardigan – Jardin des Orangers (similar here); pumps – Sőfft; necklace – Lionette by Noa Sade (similar here); cardigan – Classic (similar here); bracelet – Sydney Evans; flats – Naturalizer

I've done a LOT of posts in the past about dresses - today I'm specifically thinking about this post about a navy dress with pastel accessories. A navy dress - or any dark neutral colored dress - can be worn to pieces during the hot weather, and then layered under a cardigan or sweater as the weather cools. It might be all that you need to ease into the next season...

  1. Love the "fit and flare" style. So much easier on ladies of a certain age (and hip size) than a sheath. Good ideas here.
