Have you heard about the Style It Project? The very clever duo Kimbalikes and Redcliffestyle select an item of clothing each month and you can participate by sharing your way of styling it. I gave the camo pants a go back in August (you can read about it here) and had a great time working out how to wear them with pieces from my wardrobe. The item for October is the Mix Apparel Eyelet Strap dress which I bought in the size 8 on sale for $29. Here are three ways to wear it.
Style 1: I’ve added a sleeveless shirt (by Target) in my favourite aqua tone tied up in front for a casual look. I love an aqua-tan combo. Shoes are the Bondi flats by Betts Shoes.
Style 2: Again I’ve added a shirt over the top to give an extra layer. This shirt is the Swiss Dot Blouse in Lavender by Mix Apparel. It’s nice to try a colour I don’t wear often. I’ve also added the wide tan belt to give the look a bit more definition and it matches my shoes
Style 3: I’ve seen quite a few of the Style It Project participants adding a regular top over their eyelet dress to make it work as a skirt which is a great idea. Check out Howcaniwearthat and Icadoo for more ideas. I’ve followed their lead here and am sticking to the classic navy and white combination.
Do you wear dresses just because?
