This month for our How We Style series we are going to show you 3 ways to style this gorgeous Ulla Johnson Abelia Dress. What’s not to love about this dress? Great color…check…..easy silhouette….check……versatile….check! We could go on and on. With this being a longer style, a lot of people are unsure of how to style it. Check out the pictures below to see 3 unique looks that can be achieved with the Abelia dress.
The first way we styled it was with a pair of white booties (all the rage right now), a cool belt, and some fun earrings. Because this style is very flowy it completely changes the look when you belt it to a more curve showing silhouette. This could be worn during the day and most definitely transition into evening.
Second, because the fabric tends to read dressy, we wanted to show you how to make it more casual for day. We paired it with casual accessories and with a fun high pony tail which instantly makes it look more laid back but clearly still fabulous.
Lastly, we went for a strictly evening look. This dress has a gold thread running through out and I think with the right accessories could even be worn for a cocktail party. We paired it with a glitzy heel, fun small bag and some dressy earrings. A low sleek pony tail adds a touch of sophistication to this look.
We will leave you with a picture of Molly Sims spotted in this dress and she paired it with a Gucci fanny pack. See, the options are endless! 🙂
Often times, we have customers ask us how they should style certain items…. or we hear them say, “if I had others ways I could wear that piece I would love it but I am just not sure what to do with it.” Since we hear this so often, we have decided to do a blog series once a month where we will pick an item we have in-store and show you all various ways to style/wear it. It is always great when you can invest in a piece that is extremely versatile and can be worn a plethora of different ways. We are going to start the series off with this awesome Mara Hoffman wrap dress. It is currently part of our 50% off sale (such a steal) and I am honestly shocked someone hasn’t snatched this piece up already. It is easily one of the most versatile pieces I have in the store right now.
This dress is gorgeous worn by itself with a statement heel and killer Lizzie Fortunato necklace. Styled this way it is more of a dressy look. I think the length of this dress is one reason it hasn’t sold already. People tend to associate a longer length (midi/maxi) with a dressy feel and that isn’t the case. I wear midi dresses on almost a daily basis with a great flat or bootie. It is all about knowing how to style the piece and dressing it down with the right accessories. One way to dress this Mara Hoffman dress down is to layer it over a casual fitted turtleneck. The one below is by Sita Murt. This instantly gives a more laid back feel and it looks great paired with a pair of Rag and Bone booties.
Just because this dress is sleeveless doesn’t mean that you can’t wear it during colder weather. Layer it over a light weight turtleneck and then throw a fun cardigan over it and you are good to go in the Winter months. Perfect for the office or a business lunch.
For a great date night look during the Winter, we loved it paired with this burnt orange Sita Murt sweater and lace up oxford heel. Add a pop of leopard with the handbag, and this feels much more like a going out ensemble but with the practicality of a work outfit. It is all about the accessories. This look could go from day to evening with ease.
