Dress season is here and so I’m dedicating this week to spring dresses! This is a 3 part dress series. Today, it’s all about the white dress! Next up will be “Casual Dresses” and “Dressy Dresses,” so stay posted!
Don’t let my new pretty collages fool you! These collages still have the same mix of high and low priced items that you’ve come to know and trust from C. Style! If there is one thing I miss most about helping clients, it’s coming up with the perfect outfit for them from head to toe. I realized this recently with my “Let’s Escape” resort wear post. Then, so many of you told me how much you appreciated the outfits because you usually “shop the mannequin.” I knew this from my days with clients, but I had forgotten! Well, I enjoy helping women feel great and putting together outfits, so these collages are a win-win!
On that note, there are different ways you can approach these collages. You can use them to help you come up with an entire look (I’ve chosen these specific white dresses because they look good on a variety of body types), or you can use the collages as a way to bring together a complete look with a few pretty accessories. I’ve added additional styling information at the end of each collage. And the really great thing is that everything in these collages can be mixed and matched!
Although this dress says petite, I wouldn’t say it’s only for a shorter person. The hem hits me about an inch and a half above my knee (I’m 5′ 8″). I’ve linked to less expensive versions of the shoes and bag below. Click on pictures below.
I love this dress from J. Crew, especially if you like your arms to be covered! And boy, is this the perfect example of what a statement earring can do for an outfit?! I love that for only $38 dollars, you can buy an accessory that makes this whole outfit pop! Click on pictures below.
I was nervous about this dress being too short, but then I read that the model is 5′ 11.5″! When I know a dress may be on the shorter side, since the slip is shorter than the dress, I like to wear flats. These espadrilles are so unexpected and effortless, which makes the look so chic! Once again, the accessories really take this dress up a notch! Click on pictures below.
I hope you found this post helpful and useful! I know this time of year can be super busy with the fun activities that usually call for dresses, which is fun but can also be stressful if you don’t have the time or desire to shop.
