In a 1960s mood? You’re in luck, because this week I’m going full-on mod squad by showing you how to style a long-sleeve collared dress for both a day of classes and a night out. I chose a beige-toned dress with a black Peter Pan collar for an extra retro look, but feel free to choose your favorite color combination. (I think an all-white dress would look amazing!)
Immortalized by Twiggy and other ’60s style icons, these flirty dresses have a retro flair that’s super trendy and beyond cute. Interested? Read on to find out how to get the look!
Long-Sleeve Collared Dress: Class
For a cozy, vintage-inspired day look, layer your dress with a fluffy gray cardigan and cinch at the waist with a simple black belt. This helps give the outfit a modern edge. Keep it schoolgirl chic with a pair of opaque black tights and velvety black ballet flats. A structured black and beige tote (which matches the dress!) adds extra polish to complete the ensemble.
Long-Sleeve Collared Dress: Night Out
Instantly upgrade your look for night by switching out your plain stockings for a pair of lace textured tights. Add studded black ankle booties and enjoy your femme fatale status. Trendy twists like a leopard belt at the waist and a snakeskin-embellished clutch keep you from looking too dated, while bejeweled pearl studs add just the right amount of retro sparkle.
