On the days when you know you want to go for a classic summer look, wear your dress as you bought it. Add a pair of sandals and accessories, and you’re good to go.
Let your shirtdress do double duty as a sleeveless vest by unbuttoning each button and layering additional pieces, like a denim dress, underneath. For added allure, use a printed scarf as a belt.
Layer a rusty orange striped top over an army green dress for contrast, and balance out the entire look with a pair of white sneakers.
To perfect your off-duty look, layer a midi dress over a pair of cropped baby blues. Pin the top closed with an unexpected vintage brooch, and layer a neutral tank underneath for an effortless, laid-back vibe.
Who needs a blouse when you can wear a vest instead? Layer a sleeveless black one over your dress, and you have yourself a chic two-piece outfit that’s perfect to wear to your 9-to-5.
