Dress is More

Stripes, camisole, cardigan, statement earrings and banana pin: when it comes to dressing, I'm in the "less is more" camp... More or less! Layering has become one of my dressing strategies and I use it all year round. Although, layering is more obvious in the cooler months, summer also presents its own unique layering opportunities. Most of them stem from necessity, but that's as good a reason as any! Take today's dress for example: it's a beautiful striped midi dress with open back and plunging neckline. Although great for a hot summer day, it's not quite office appropriate. I like to get a lot of wear out of my pieces, so in order to wear this dress to work, I layered a camisole under it to make the neckline less daring and cover up the back a little. The cami is however not enough to cover the entire back and shoulders, so I added a light cardigan for fuller coverage. So there you have it, the magic of layering!
