I adore dresses. In fact, my closet is completely full of every dress shape and style known to man. And while I love to wear them year-round it’s spring and summer that see the heaviest rotation of sheaths, shifts, A-lines, fit-and-flares, maxis, wraps, minis, midis and more. This season, I am all about light and flowy frocks that I can pair with a cropped moto jacket, boyfriend denim jacket or sporty bomber. I love to pair a feminine piece with a masculine topper or accessory to keep the look modern and unique. Here’s a look at how I paired a few of my favorite closet staples with a cute, vintage-inspired floral dress by June & Hudson.
This adorable dress was a recent impulse purchase for me. The weather was beginning to warm, and I wanted to find a fun floral dress to wear with my favorite studded floral leather jacket. This vintage-look cutie immediately caught my eye — especially its light neutral tones that go with just about everything. Plus, the muted floral print meant I could mix and match it with other patterns without the fear of clashing. And once I topped it off with my favorite leather jacket — which is now also available in white, btw! — I knew it was a winner. That perfect mix of hard edges and soft fabric gets me every time.
After adding the jacket, which is a statement in and of itself thanks to both floral embroidery and studded details, I wanted to keep playing up the street chic vibe of the look. I added an on-trend choker, as well as a rocker posh studded satchel by Coach to really play up the edgy details of the look. And because summer looks are all about the footwear, I made sure my peep-toe booties by Marc Fisher were ready for struttin’! The perforated texture and fringe detail elevate these booties from an everyday black bootie to a shoe style statement.
Try a cool mix of a street chic or sporty jacket this spring and summer with a feminine dress to change up your “dress code.” You just might find it’s your new go-to formula for everyday style success!
