Floral Check

I love wearing blouses under sleeveless dresses in the winter. It allows me to get more wear out of my dresses without covering up the pretty prints and details. Wearing a blazer or cardigan would do just fine, but sometimes I don't like covering up the print. These navy and burgundy blooms are too pretty to hide under a layer. By adding a grey gingham shirt, I complement the floral print in both colour and style. The dress is still the focal point, but the printed sleeves and collar add a stylistic aspect the dress does not have on its own. I also like that the shape of the dress is not lost under looser layers. Dresses can be very structured pieces and I love to showcase that as much as I can. The belt helps emphasize the dresse's shape and contributes to the more casual feel of this overall look. The burgundy tights definitely help with that aspect. With creative layering and accessorizing I styled a structured summer dress into a casual winter look. How's that for versatility?
