As I was going through my files, I realized that I never posted this outfit from KCFW! Augh, #fail. This beautiful dress was a gift from designer Rachel Roy for her show. I love it for so many reasons, but among them being how seasonless it is. The floral and sleeveless look lends itself to spring and summer, but the dark florals work during fall and winter with a jacket or sweater layered over.
I ended up throwing a belt over the dress to give it a bit of shape- which is one of the easiest ways to make someone look slender. Also, I usually do this to hide a gathered stitch waist which you can see in detail in the photo above. If you have a dress with that kind of waist I will always suggest a belt. It doesn’t have to be huge or even a statement, but I opt to cover it.
