Are you getting ready to wear dresses again? Now that the weather teases us with hints of spring, I begin to ponder what dresses are lurking in my stored warm-weather clothes, and how I will wear them…
I know some women prefer to wear dresses in colder weather, because they can wear tights! Fair enough, but don’t discount the comfort and versatility of a “below the knee” dress in a light fabric and a roomy cut!
Today, for no good reason, I wanted to accessorize dresses in a way that’s NOT the first thing one would expect; if you can find more than 1 way to wear a dress, you’ll have a good reason to wear it even MORE often. That’s always smart!
For example, this most excellent black dress would be an obvious base with which to wear black accessories – of course! – or black and white, or red…
So I’m looking at brown! The pleats at the neckline of this dress would be a fun place to park a brooch; maybe a wee critter peeking out from a fold of fabric?
Sweatshirt dresses are often worn with sneakers and casual accessories, so I thought that rose gold would be a nice change of pace!
Most of the time, I would wear a grey dress with black, or maybe silver… So let’s see what a warm beige – light camel? – can do!
Okay, maybe the rose accessories here aren’t completely surprising – but I couldn’t resist showing you this dress!
Navy with bright green screams spring!
A grey linen dress! SO hard to find… why not give it the gold accessories treatment?
the scarf is glorious…
I’m not sure that brown with this coral linen dress is a big break-through, but this is another dress that was worth a look…
Another comfy linen dress – with some more green. I’m ready for some bright colors!
I think that my big breakout accessory this spring might be a pair of gold sandals, to wear with my brown linen pants and shirt; I already have gold jewelry…
What a change!
p.s. More than 3 years ago, I suggested TEN different ways to wear a blue dress – do you get the feeling that I’m a firm believer in the versatility of dresses?
