How To Style A Pleated Dress

The season of warmer weather is finally here which means more opportunities to wear dresses.  It’s also the time that more special occasions are taking place that you find yourself attending and needing something to wear.  When I do make a purchase I keep in mind that what I’m buying is a versatile piece that can be worn more than once.

 

I found this pleated dress at Ross and I loved the color and the embroidery of the flowers at the neck of the dress.  I really was sold on this dress outside of the great price, but because it had pockets which is always a major win for me, dressed up or down they will always look chic!  For my shoes I paired with my denim flowered sandals that I pulled from my closet that went perfect with this dress.  You don’t have to also buy an entire look, shop your closet for those hidden treasures.

What I love about this pleated dress is that it can be worn for a dressed down daytime look with wedge sandals or flats for a baby shower or even just for a spring day.  And it can be dressed up with heels for a date night or evening party.  A few great accessories would be a pair of earrings and a clutch bag to complete this look for evening and switch out the clutch for a crossover bag for day time.

The color pink has definitely been trending a lot lately and being that it’s my favorite color I’m loving every bit of it.  I have been adding color to my looks and totally enjoying it, I have a couple of recent post with wearing pink here and here.  Summer is the perfect time to play around with this color and these pants were the perfect addition to my wardrobe.

Lately I’ve been gravitating to a lot of blue and white, which is out of the norm for me.  Generally I pretty much stick to black and white with pops of color here and there, but this spring and summer I’m trying something different and stepping outside of my comfort zone.  For me I believe its a great color that goes well with with neutrals that I can pair it with and it being a peplum top was just the icing on the cake.
