One Dress, Four Fall Looks
In my previous post, Outfit Inspiration: Dress & Poncho, I styled my Side Slit Striped Mini Sheath Dress with a black poncho. I loved this fall look, that was inspired by my mother! A key aspect of this dress, is how versatile it is. The length makes it perfect for work, and the v-shaped slit at the left hem makes it trendy. Here are a few different ways you can style this dress, and any other basic dress.
Dress and Poncho
As one could probably tell by now, I love a good poncho. When the weather is chilly it is the perfect time to wear a poncho, especially for us nannies and sales associates. You get the warmth of a sweater, but you can move around more freely with no sleeves.
Dress and Blanket Scarf
As I have mentioned before, a blanket scarf is perfect for the colder seasons! This blanket scarf is warmer than the poncho. The deep red coloring is great for fall. I also loved this outfit because I did pattern play (mixing prints: plaid and stripes).
My Side Slit Striped Mini Sheath Dress is from Express. My brown leather riding boots are from G.H. Bass & Co. They do not sell this pair at the moment, however, they do sell other Riding Boots. My blanket scarf is from The Paper Store. They do not sell this specific scarf anymore. They do have a new selection this year.
Dress and Statement Necklace
This look is also very simple and does not cost a lot of money, just like the previous ones. I simply took a black and white outfit and added a splash of color through my statement necklace. I then added a colorful bag so the necklace would not be on it’s own.
My black leather lace-up boots are Boemos. My necklace is from Nigeria. My purse is from Olivia + Joy. They are not currently selling this purse. However, I am selling this purse, and others, on my Ebay account.
Dress and Scarf
My last look has this dress with a scarf layered over it. I chose a printed scarf, with a different print, instead of a solid color. While choosing this pattern play item, I knew that it needed to have a more compact pattern than that of my striped dress. The scarf also needed to have similar colors as the dress. This one was full of grays and black, with a hint of gold. I brought out the gold by stacking gold bangles together. Then, I wore a large ring on my other hand to even out the jewelry. My cognac leather booties helped even out the coloring of the scarf and dress, making the outfit look more pulled together. These ankle booties are extremely comfortable! I am able to wear them at Express for a six hour shift and still feel fine by the end of the night!!
My scarf was from Marshalls. My Leather Rabalais Booties are from Aldo, I own the the cognac color. They also come in black suede, taupe, and bordeaux suede. My gold bangles are from Forever 21. They do not sell these specific ones, however, they do have a large selection of Gold Bangles. I bought my ring at a Lia Sophia party. There is a Lia Sophia Outlet website and they sell this ring: Tulipa.
I hope that you enjoyed these looks that I styled! All are very simple and do not cost a lot of money. You do not need a striped dress to pull off these looks. They work with any basic dress! I hope that you all have a great week! Check in Wednesday to see how my Denim Challenge went.
