Playing Dress Up!

Hello All!

I am absolutely into monochromatic dresses these days. I haven't bought prints in a while and for good reason too. When it's a beautiful, bold, printed dress it becomes the nucleus of my look. As pretty as a floral or geometric print dress in bright, captive colors looks, there isn't much I can add to it. I am not a big fan of matching/clashing prints (yes... I know it's all the rage right now but it's not my cup of tea) and so if I wear a printed piece I just want to complement it with neutral accessories. However, if the main piece is a solid color, there are a lot of ways to play with it.

For example, I tried this simple plain dress with a blue blazer and it looked fabulous. I paired it with yellow floral pumps and it looked quirky. And in these pictures, I paired it with several black accessories to make it work for a lunch or a day at the office and it worked both ways.

Notice how the dress looks different at different lengths? I just wore the same belt in two different ways - one in which I puffed the top part of the dress around it so that the hemline would seem shorter and more playful, and the other in which I cinched the belt tightly around the waist, pulling the whole dress down and wearing it at its actual length.

I have also posted a picture with the blazer which makes the outfit look more professional and I have posted one with the dress sans accessories so that you get an idea of how the dress looked originally.
