How to Style a Busy Dress

Most women have that one dress they love, but they have no idea how to style it or what to wear with it. It’s probably a super busy (print), has different textures (sequins and tulle), asymmetric length or weird cuts. I’ve got three tips on how to style your favorite dress… so you can finally wear it.

Style Tip #1

Keep Your Accessories Simple

It’s tempting to over accessorize, but do so on solid colors, mostly dark. For a really busy dress, like this floral sundress… it has A LOT of fabric. It’s very diva, but can go from diva to gaudy extremely quick. Keep the attention on the bare parts, such as your neck OR ears – not both for so much fabric. Maybe a ring, but keep it minimal with maybe a band only.

Ditch your shoulder bag or Neverfull for a small clutch or wallet.

Style Tip #2

Wear Neutral Shoes

Flats, wedge, heel or espadrille, keep the shoe color neutral and light in color. Tan, beige or creme looks best on light colored prints and florals (flowers are typically light or jeweled toned). Blacks and dark blues look best on darker colors. Wearing a shoe to pull out the color in your ‘busy outfit’ can again, gaudy and cheap quick.

Style Tip #3

Pin up Your Hair

Unless strapless or if you’re self conscious about your back and décolletage, wear your hair up or pinned back. A simple hairstyle is easy to curate, plus, it keeps the attention on one element, your outfit. Your style will read effortlessly brilliant. It will also allow your accessories to show. However, if you want your hair down, keep it simple – a soft bend, not a spiraled curl.

When you have a lot going on with your dress or separates, wearing the same pattern on top and bottom, it can seem like a lot. This is one look wear you can keep it simple.
