Easy Outfit Formulas: Floral Dress + Slouchy Cardigan

2 Comments

Easy outfit formulas floral dress cardigan
Product Info: Dress, Cardigan

You know those days – the ones where you roll out of bed (after hitting the snooze button too many times), stumble into your closet, and have no idea what to wear? Our series Easy Outfit Formulas is here to help! Every other week, I’ll feature two items (which you might own already) that can be paired into outfits for those days when you need some quick and easy inspiration.

I don’t know about you, but where I am, temps are still reaching well into the 80s, so it feels a lot more like summer than fall! So, as I’ve mentioned before, summer-to-fall transitional dressing is on my mind.

One of the best outfit formulas for this time of year is a summery floral dress and a slouchy, knit cardigan – two college girl essentials you probably already have in your closet. You can easily mix and match colors and styles, so this combo is totally foolproof. But just in case you need some inspiration, here are three looks to get you started:

Soft & Feminine

Product Info: Dress – Dorothy Perkins, Cardigan – Modcloth, Sandals – Nordstrom Rack, Tote – Torrid, Necklace – Gilt

If your style is a little more soft and girly, try this sweet look. Pair a lightweight floral maxi dress with a long, heathered blue cardigan, and slip on a pair of ankle strap sandals with metallic details. Accessorize with a delicate pendant necklace, and use a simple faux leather tote to carry your books and supplies for the day.

Florals on Florals

Floral dress + purple draped cardigan outfit
Product Info: Dress – H&M, Cardigan – New Look, Tights – Express, Boots – Go Jane, Bag – Sole Society, Glasses – Urban Outfitters

If the days are a little chillier where you are, use this outfit to transition your summer wardrobe into fall. Start with a short-sleeve floral dress and layer on floral lace tights underneath for an extra pop of print. A draped purple cardigan adds a dark fall hue while keeping you warm. Lace up black boots and a black messenger bag toughen things up a bit, while retro-inspired glasses (prescription or not!) polish off the look with a studious vibe.

Cute & Colorful

Floral dress + white crochet cardigan outfit
Product Info: Dress – Ruche, Cardigan – Charlotte Russe, Wedges – Nine West, Bag – JCPenney, Bracelet – Sole Society, Earrings – Piperlime

This lovely look is perfect for a warm weather date or sorority event, and lets you savor those bright, summery colors before fall is in full swing. Start with your favorite floral sundress and layer on a white crochet cardigan. Tie in your accessories with the colors of the dress, as I’ve done here with pink wedges and an aqua crossbody bag. Lastly, add a little sparkle with a gold bracelet and rhinestone studs.

Thoughts?

Celebrity Street Style of the Week: Taylor Swift, Poppy Delevingne, & Kate Bosworth

Celebrity Street Style of the Week: Taylor Swift, Poppy Delevingne, & Kate Bosworth

Every week, I scour the web to find inspiring outfits on your favorite celebs and help you recreate their looks! This week, I was inspired by Taylor Swift, Poppy Delevigne, and Kate Bosworth. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.

Look 1: Taylor Swift’s Swing Dress

Taylor Swift turned heads in a short, black swing dress with lacy bell sleeves, along with black ankle booties, a felt hat, and a neutral-colored satchel. Taylor’s dress has a vintage vibe to it; the short, loose shape and flared sleeves give it a ’60s flair, while her boots have a mod-inspired look to them. This outfit is super-cute for fall, and can also be worn with black tights once the weather gets cooler.

This black crochet tassel shift dress fits similar to Taylor’s and has the bell sleeves, which give it that vintage feel. The crochet also mimics the lace detailing on Taylor’s dress, while a tassel hem adds another fun touch.

Wear it with mod-inspired booties; these black ankle boots have a slightly square-shaped toe and block heel, which embraces that ’60s vibe. For a really fashion-forward look, go all out with accessories and wear a wide-brim hat and carry a neutral-colored bag.

Look 2: Poppy Delevigne’s Colorful Cool

Model and it-girl Poppy Delevigne was out and about in NYC in a cool look featuring a colorful printed double-slit midi skirt, a gray crop top, white Converse, and circular, mirrored sunglasses. Poppy’s ensemble is playful yet fashion-forward; her sneakers add a laid-back touch to her vibrant skirt, and are a chic way to incorporate some comfort into your outfit.

Poppy’s look would be ideal for a day when you want incorporate a balance of fashion-forwardness with a laid-back vibe. The Topshop skirt pictured here is the same one Poppy is wearing, and features a vibrantly-colored leaf print design. While this skirt is super cool, any colorful printed skirt would do the trick.

Pair the skirt with a gray, square-cut crop top – gotta love 90’s throwback pieces! – and white Converse. Finally, complete the outfit with a pair of mirrored round sunglasses, which have been popping up on models and celebs everywhere.

Look 3: Kate Bosworth

This past week, Kate Bosworth took on two seasons at a time, and looked chic while doing so. Kate wore a double-breasted coat in a neutral beige shade that was perfectly fall, but also wore strappy sandals, which were more of a summer-y touch. To round off her look, she wore light-washed skinny jeans and aviator sunglasses.

This outfit is great for this “in-between” time, where fall is not yet in full effect, but summer seems to be over. The light, neutral coloring of Kate’s outfit make it seasonally appropriate, too.

Don’t want to give up sandals, but ready to start embracing fall? Try Kate’s look. Light wash skinny jeans, neutral strappy sandals, and a top of your choice will look chic and fall-ready with a neutral double-breasted jacket. A jacket or coat with structure looks classic and pulls this simple yet stylish look together nicely.
