How To Style The Gray Midi Dress

Saturday, March 18, 2017

Mixing and matching pieces, colors, and brands is what I LIVE for!!! It brings me great joy to be able to maximize my wardrobe by creating multiple outfits from just one piece. It is not only a passion, but I'd like to think it is also a gift ;-) But who am I kidding, really, anyone can learn the art of style by doing just the same. It's actually quite simple. One rule of thumb in style is that of course, less is more. The more basic the item, the better it can be used to re-create more looks. Now let me tell ya, there's definitely nothing basic about how you style your basics. I am your case in point, as I have managed to create 6 different glam looks using one neutral gray dress, and various colors to compliment it -  and ain't nothin' basic about it lol. Note that there are plenty of other colors that are not included in this post, which also effortlessly work with the color gray: Navy, Magenta, Red, Yellow, Orange, Leopard, etc. A neutral palette of basics with the addition of colored pieces can most certainly create multiple ensembles within your wardrobe. Sometimes ya just gotta shop in your own closet ;-)
