Winterizing a Swing Dress + style tips for basic pieces

Dec 14, 2016

Dress, Bohoblu c/o (10% off with code SAMANTHA10) | Similar faux fur vest here & here  | Boots, Nordstrom | Bag, Louis Vuitton | Similar necklace here & absolutely LOVE this one

First of all, this #ootd is an example of why basics are so important for your wardrobe. Take this plain swing dress, add a few fun pieces and you have a super cute look that can take you from work (dress is an appropriate length) to date night. I love pieces that you can mix and match and get lots of different looks out of them. This dress would be super cute in spring with a denim jacket or denim vest and some espadrille wedges. 

When you are looking for a faux fur vest to wear with a dress, shorter lengths tend to work better for the vest to not make the dress look too frumpy. Fashion is all about proportions and balance! I added a statement necklace to add a bit of edge to the look :)

For size reference, I am in a small and I'm 5/6"
