Frocktober continues and I’m sharing more dress styling ideas for you to try with your own dresses at home.

I love a dress because they are so easy to wear. Not only do you only “have” to think about one garment (maximum two if you’re adding a layer), they are fast and easy to put on, and you look more dressed up with less effort than almost any other garment!
This week I’ve been styling a couple of dresses a few ways.
Dress it Down with Denim
A denim jacket is the easiest way to make a dress look more casual. This dress (Leona Edmiston, past season) has a split sleeve and is easy to wear to a dressier function, so denim is the ideal way to make it daytime appropriate.
Funk it Up with Fur
Adding a faux fur Gillette (vest) is another way to add warmth and a bit of fun to a dress during this kind of trans-seasonal weather where it’s chilly in the morning but warmer later in the day.
Knot a White Shirt
Over a navy sheath dress, I’ve layered a white shirt which I’ve knotted at the waist to give it some shape as otherwise, it would look like a saggy baggy sack.
Adding a red shrug, belt, necklace and Scarlettos ballet flats adds a pop of colour (beauty bundle alert) and some colour contrast to my neutral navy.
Dust it Off
This patterned duster in blue and white creates a long slimming line over the dress as well as a light layer for added warmth.
