Style trend: lace dress

style trend comment

Lace dresses | see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

Lace is one of the defining fabrics of femininity. Its use in a dress can create a feeling of ‘girly’ or can add a subtle feeling of intrigue. For example, this lace dress would be the perfect one to wear to a bridal shower (go boho: add a cute clutch and a flower garland on your head!). Or, wear this one to an upcoming brunch (love the collar!). And, this one is perfect for that next outdoor wedding (keep cool while dancing the night away!).

This shirtdress is reserved for those days when I open my closet and have that “I don’t have anything to wear” feeling. The dress pairs well with practically anything and is easy for not having this “think” about what I want to wear. Plus, I can wear it year-round and get my money’s worth out of it. In this outfit, I paired it with a bright, contrasting yellow crossbody and keep with the blue theme by adding these comfortable heels.

I’ve rounded up some of my favorites right now – maybe I can live vicariously through you and see all these pretty dresses on you!

Trends come and go but white sneakers always seem to come full circle. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always owned a pair of white sneakers. Raise your hand if you’ve ever owned one of the original pairs, these canvas ones (#damndaniel), or these leather ones. White sneakers are easily paired with jeans for a casual look as evidenced with this outfit but can be also be worn with dresses for a sporty chic look. You can’t go wrong with either since your feet will thank you for such comfortable shoes!

Style trend: tie waist dress

style trend comment

Tie waist dress - see all the picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

The tie front dress is quite a popular look and for good reason: the addition of the “tie” around the waist gives dimension and completely changes the feel of an otherwise usual dress. It helps to add some definition to the waist. Also, it’s perfect for the upcoming warmer weather: no need for an extra layer since the dresses have a built-in faux shirt/sweater sleeve tied around the waist. I’m love this one for a more formal look and this one for a more sporty look (just add a baseball cap and sneakers!). Which one is your favorite?

Blush crepe tie waist dress

Striped blue tie waist dress

Grey jersey tie waist dress

Sleeveless blue tie waist dress

White tie waist dress

Chambray tie waist dress
