Ok, during my trip to Chicago this dress was the other Marc by Marc piece I picked up. I fell in love with it the moment I tried it on and knew that it was meant to be part of my closet. I always told myself that if I ever owned a piece by Mr. Jacobs I would make sure that it was something I could have for a long time and I could wear all year round since it is some pricey stuff- well folks, I think I found my match. So with that little introduction I would like to show you how I plan to wear this dress year round and offer some tips on how you can do the same with something in your wardrobe.
Look One: Spring/Middle Fall
Denim Jacket: Thrifted
Bag: DSW (Charles David – last yr.)
Shoes: DSW (Boutique 9)
With Spring and the start of Fall weather is always unpredictable and due to that I decided that a denim jacket would be the perfect solution. I also thought about how to dress this up a little bit and decided to add the shades of metallic (silver necklace; gold shoes). The dress has such bold colors that again, I just wanted to pair it with more neutral tones to let the dress stand out and not to be over accessorized.
Look Two: Summer
Since this dress has a tribal theme going on I thought these gladiator/tribal inspired sandals would be the perfect topper. I also love the sleeves on this dress because you can do anything with them, for the summer look I decided to just push them all the way mainly to deal with the heat. With the summer look I basically just striped all the layers away and added the essentials of summer- sandals and shades!
Look Three: Late Fall/Winter
Socks: DSW (Nine West)
Boots: DSW (Steven Madden)
The first thing in my closet I pictured wearing with this dress were these cognac boots. I think the cognac really brings out the rusty colors in the dress and just adds a little something extra. Since this dress is so bold I just added all the brown shades and didn’t try to pair it with something that didn’t belong in the mix. The 3/4 sleeves and tights should keep me warm most of the winter!
*Another thought, after these photos were taken I also thought about pairing a chunky brown sweater over the dress for some extra warmth – and violá now you have a skirt
Do you guys have anything in your closet that you wear year-round?
