The many possibilities a simple black and white dress lends never cease to amaze me. I’ve remixed this dress so many times, I’ve lost count. Last weekend, I wanted to wear it in a way that reflected the freshness and vibrancy of spring. I added a bright green cardigan, raspberry accents, and some white sandals. I felt gloriously springy all day – much more so than if I had gone with my traditional weekend uniform of jeans and a nice blouse.
That “belt” is actually a square silk scarf. I folded over diagonally several times to create a long strip, and then tied it around my waist, hiding the ties underneath my cardigan. I love how it created a sash effect and added a nice pop of color. I tried different ways of incorporating into the outfit by tying it around my head, on my purse, etc, but this was my favorite out of all those looks.
What accessory have you used in a non-traditional way before?
