Every girl has a dress or some clothing item in her closet that she can wear in a different way. But we think that many people get discouraged and don't exactly know how to style it. We decided to do a collaboration with Brass Clothing on how to wear a basic dress two different ways.
Brass Clothing is a clothing company that has basic wardrobe pieces for everyday woman. We actually really loved this idea. We all need a plain black dress, or a chambray shirt, or a maxi dress in our closet. They have pieces that allow women to integrate the items into their everyday outfits. We picked two dresses from their collection that we both think are versatile and that we can wear often.
(Ashlyn) I picked out the black shift dress because I believe it is a staple piece for every woman. There are many occasions that can call for a black dress and there are many ways to style it. I decided to style mine with a white long sleeve blouse. I liked this look because it gave my dress a girly but classy look. It is a great dress to wear to work, on a date, to dinner, or causally with sandals.
For my second look I put a big, slouchy sweater over my dress and paired it with my look-a-like yeezy's and a blush pink watch. I went for a sporty/chic look because its super comfy and this slouchy look is totally coming back in style. I noticed while watching the iheart radio music awards, that many stars had that 90's style and shabby/chic look. I will admit, I am kind of liking this look coming back in!
(Sarah) Right when I saw this grey dress I fell in love with it! I love this dress not only because it is super cute and simple which makes it easy to be creative with, but the quality of the fabric is great! Its super thick and its super comfortable, which makes it totally worth the money. My typical routine when I get home from a long day at work is to jump right into my sweats and a t shirt but when I got home in this dress I actually hung out in it for the rest of the night! Thats a good sign. ;)
The first outfit that I styled with this dress was a super chic and casual. I love buying simple items that I can dress up and be creative with on my own. I use to hate wearing dresses with sneakers because I felt like I had fat ankles lol but I have learned to love my legs so now I love wearing them!
The second outfit that I styled was my favorite because I got to wear a hat! ;) If anyone knows me they know how obsessed I am with my hats! I also found this gorgeous necklace from Target that was on sale for $10! Its a cute choker (which are totally back in style) and it can go with so many things. I have already worn it like 10 times so I've gotten my money's worth! If I could give any advice about buying staple pieces like this dress is to make sure you don't skimp on the quality. Make sure you spend a little extra money and make sure you get a great quality piece that will last you a while, and something you can wear over and over without it tearing or ripping on you.
