It’s All in the Details: One Dress You Can Wear Several Ways

It’s all in the details.

I’ve said it before – I love classic pieces. 85% of my closet is staples and classic pieces that never go out of style, and about a quarter of those have a little bit of a twist because I love details. A classic wrap dress with fun pockets and a military-style neckline. Wide-leg trousers with fun back pocket details. A classic top with unexpected sleeves.

I do, from time to time, fall for trends. Right now I’m loving the bell sleeves – and I’m loving classic pieces with bell sleeves. I’m also loving the tee shirt dress. It’s simple, it’s classic, and you can’t go wrong.

I’m also loving neutrals right now, and when I found this gray Topshop dress at Nordstrom recently, I didn’t hesitate to bring it home. It’s got a classic neckline and fun sleeves perfect for fall in Florida (do you hear me laughing at that oxymoron?). What makes it extra fun, though, is the side-tie detail. It’s a little classic and a little badass.

And it’s perfect when I indulge a little too much and want to hide it!

I don’t hesitate to buy something when I know I can wear it a half-dozen ways depending on my mood.

With booties on a cool fall day.

With wedges when the weather starts to warm up

With Millers in the summer.

With rainboots in the spring.

With ballet flats through the airport or to take my kids to school.

One dress – endless wears. And for only $45. Is it possible to find a better buy? (The correct answer is no).

What have you found recently you know you can wear a million ways and never on repeat?
