I often get asked how do I come up with so many styling options for a single piece of clothing, in particular a dress?! It's quite easy, just experiment with it! Even though a dress can seem like the most easiest option it can also be quite tricky. A dress can be worn one way, the way that you see it, the way that you bought it, plain and simple. But that's not the way Jacqui thinks!
I took this dress, from Forever 21 and styled it in 4 different ways, to show you how I get a lot of wear out of my dresses. This is especially great with shift dresses and body- con dresses.
The first look (top left) is what I'd call the casual, day time look. A bright pink pencil skirt on top of the violet and teal dress, with turquoise as the accent color and a fun geometric- shaped necklace. The next look, is a more night time look (top right). A black blazer on top of the dress with a fur vest on top of it. I continued the theme of the animal by adding the leopard print belt, I love mixing prints! I know it's hard to see, but the coin pendant of the necklace has leopard print in it too. Bottom left is what I would call a date- friendly outfit. You're showing enough skin to be considered a tease, legs! I threw a white button down blouse on top of the dress, then layered it with a comfy, coral sweater. I played up the blues of the dress by adding the teal belt and necklace. All it needs is a nude pump to make your legs look longer and it also keeps the attention up top! The last look, (bottom right) is what I like to call the perfect interview outfit, especially if it's fashion friendly. I layered the dress on top of a navy, pussy- bow blouse. I love to play with colors, so the added effect of red was the right touch! Viola! Four different looks with just one dress, ahhh the possibilities could be endless!
