The Stylish Ever Crafter Dress: 3 Ways

3 Ways To Wear ItFor the next few weeks I'll be sharing fun ways to style the pieces in my upcoming collection, A Beautiful Mess for ModCloth. This first dress is one of my favorites. It's easy to wear, light and comfy with a side zipper. I love that black gingham can mix and match with so many other colors and textiles, it's a perfect dress for autumn layering. Special thanks to Kinsey for modeling these looks! 

Look 1Look 1: Have you tried layering a longer skirt over a shorter dress? This easy styling trick gives the dress a completely different vibe! Paired with the black wool hat, it's more 1970s- right? This styling is more dramatic and would be super cute for an art show or a concert! 

Styling Details: Dress/Hat/Shoes/Skirt-Vintage. 

Look 2Look 2: This style is pretty, preppy and 1950s inspired! I love pairing bold tights with a neutral dress and shoes! This is the type of styling I'd wear in everyday life, or on a casual night out.

Styling Details: Dress/Tights/Shoes

Look 3Look 3: A fitted blazer is one of my favorite Autumn staples. I invest in at least one each year. This chambray blazer makes the dress a little bit more work ready. This is an outfit that would be office appropriate, but still cute enough to wear out at night. The yellow wedges add a pop of color. (and fun!)

  • I think the third look is my favorite; I’m a sucker for blazers! Those yellow shoes are so awesome, too!

  • Love those shoes! But I am too tall to wear such high heels wish I could! Yes fall blazers are the best. Really finish off any look. Check out my post on fall blazers. And Modcloth is great. I met a blogger at the Lucky Fabb Conference and she had on a long leopard print button up sweater with spike studs on the shoulders it was great!

  • I like the second one the best but honestly, they are all so cute. I have many things in my closet that I mix n’ match so this is a great little tutorial:)

  • I love the versatility of this gingham dress. The fabric is very textural, and the detailing is very cute down the front. I think #1 has to be my favorite look. 🙂 – Alison { aliology.com }

  • Look 3 is my fav, the dress is cute. I’ve never tried wearing a skirt over a dress. It seems like it would feel weird wearing it to me but like I said i’ve never tried it.

  • Ditto on loving the dress. I can see it working in so many situations. PLUS I love it when you show us fashion-challenged readers a few options for one piece! Thanks!

  • Awesome. Look one is my favorite! I need a hat like that. : )

  • So cute! Wonderful job on the dress design – it’s adorable! And I adore that chambray blazer!!
