Nothing says Springtime like a pretty floral dress, but this season, I’m particularly drawn to a major Spring trend – the layered dress – whether simply tiered or embellished in a sea of ruffles – layers are a fresh way to add dimension and romance to a Spring staple.
And, the best part? The styling options are endless! Wear a layered dress with sandals when the temps get a tiny bit warmer, a pair of boots or booties or cool white sneakers for a more casual vibe.
For a recent day out and about in the Meatpacking District, I couldn’t wait to wear a blue floral tiered dress with the softest ruffles from waist to hemline and romantic lantern sleeves. To emphasize the waistline and give the look a little western vibe, I opted for a thick wide double buckle brown suede belt (from Forever 21 that looks like a million bucks). For shoes, because the temps are not quite yet warm and to add some visual interest and dimension, I wore python over the knee boots. Although I admit, these python boots are a daring choice, so long as the hue is in line with the other pieces of your outfit, together they will create a cohesive look. Finally, to complete the look, I carried my vintage hobo Fendi zucca bag, wore classic YSL cat-eye sunglasses and gold twist earrings.
