October 28th, 2019 by Samantha Furno 5 Ways to Style a Knitted Dress This Season

When it comes to the colder seasons, it can be hard to make any look feel chic, especially when you’re bundling up from head to toe! However, one of this season’s trendiest silhouettes, a knitted dress, is proving that it is possible to be warm and stylish even when those temperatures plunge! Whether you opt for a ribbed, fitted knit style or a sweater-like silhouette, this fashion-forward dress option is truly a piece that can be worn for any occasion! I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite ways I’ve been seeing knitted dresses styled this season and hope that these fashionistas inspire you to try this chic silhouette out for yourself!

Classic in Beige

Beige is one of the fall’s season’s best hues, so opt for a curve-hugging dress in this gorgeous neutral to ensure that you look and feel chic when on the go!

Undeniably Cozy

Name a better way to beat the cold than by wearing a cozy sweater from head to toe!

The Perfect Duo

Knee high boots are right on trend for fall, plus they are the perfect base to wear with a cozy knitted mini dress on a cold autumn day!

Just Add a Belt

Adding a belt to your knit dress is a fantastic way to add some extra interest to an outfit as well as a great way to play with proportions.

A Stylish Alternative

If knitted dresses aren’t your thing, no problem! Achieve a similar, yet equally as chic look, by wearing a matching sweater and skirt combo instead!

With so many brunches, barbecues, and picnics to attend this summer, you’ll need the perfect dress to rock all season long. A button-up dress is a breezy casual option that you can dress up or down. Fair warning: once you find your perfect cut and fit, you’re going to want to wear it on repeat this summer!

Here are some of our favorite styles and how to wear them:

Achieve a laidback vintage vibe by picking up a black and white polka dot midi. Dress this outfit up with some dainty accessories for extra style points.

 

Pump up the drama in a colorblocked version with sheer lace details.

 

Wouldn’t you agree that this pretty little number is worthy of any wedding or celebration?

 

White midi dresses with big buttons have been all over the fashion scene, and we definitely don’t mind.

 

There’s something to be said about dressing for success. The quarter sleeves, dress length and collar on this dress make it work-appropriate, and it’s cute enough to wear to dinner right after!

August 30th, 2017 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas for Late Summer

Clueless about what you should wear to that end-of-summer wedding? No worries—I’ve put together not one, but six different options. Here are my favorite wedding guest outfit ideas for your next love-filled celebration:

A floral number that hits above the knee is a perfect choice for attending a wedding in. Pair it with an adorable clutch that holds your essentials.

 

P2 - Girl With Curves

If the dress code calls for something more formal, lean towards a dress in darker colors. Rock an A-line off-the-shoulder dress with your hair swept to the side for a polished, timeless look. 

 

P3 - I Dress Myselff

When it comes to the late summertime, don’t be afraid to wear a dress that has a bit of sass to it. Opt for a dress with a small cut-out or slit to keep it flirty yet appropriate.

 

P4 - Lace and Locks

Keep it minimal and chic with a simple dual-toned dress.

A wedding reception is the perfect opportunity for you to bring out that vintage piece you stored away. Your look will be unique and one-of-a-kind!

 

P6 - With Love From Kat

For an outdoor wedding, an off-the-shoulder dress in a light, breathable material is practical and fashion-forward. Not only will it photograph well for Instagram, you don’t have to worry about it getting too hot to wear.
