How to wear a Striped Dress : Suede Vest and Lace up Flats




DRESS // FLATS // BAG // SUNGLASSES // VEST

The first time I saw this ribbed Dress (sold out Similar) on Asos I knew it had to be mine, and after I saw it on Rochelle I couldn't have been more convinced. So I watched and I waited and finally it went on sale and I scooped it up. I think what I love about the Dress is the 70's aesthetic I just love that era in fashion. 

In keeping with that I paired the look with a Suede Vest from the Nsale. Nothing says 70's like brown suede and colorful stripes. I consider Vests a wardrobe must have for several reasons one of them being their camouflaging powers on those of us who do not have a six pack. In case you missed it I've gained a few pounds and some of it went to my mid section so Bodycons dont like my body as much as they used to; which is where this Vest comes in.

SHOP THE POST


The Vest is actually made out of a buttery soft faux suede, while shooting this look both Ola and Val remarked on the quality. I got the Vest in an XL and it fits my size 16/18 body perfectly. I'll have to style this Vest again on the blog because I wasnt thinking and didnt get a picture of the scalloped detail in the back. Its such a great piece and something I'd consider a classic, definitely one of my top Nsale finds.

Tip: Camouflage any midsection issues by pairing you Bodycons with Vests

The style of today's Dress is so versatile that I could have gone any way but I decided to go casual. I paired the dress with must have FLATS (goes up to sz 12) and a navy Tote that complimented the navy in the dress. To finish it off I choose a dusty pink pair of Sunnies (try Ditto use code CHICSTER) that complimented the look perfectly. As much as I love the dress I love how the look pulled together with the Vest.

BTW Asos is offering 20% off everything use code MAJOR20 ends tonight! dont forget to use EBATES to save even MORE.
