Recently I read an article in the Trend Report of Who What Wear talking about GINGHAM as one of the major prints right now, much like floral, and this trend print immediately caught my eye and I really wanted to give it a try! Whenever I look for a particular item, I always end up going to ASOS, an amazing brand that I love so much because I can find exactly what I want. When I searched there, I luckily came across this beautiful ocean blue gingham midi dress!!! I knew this skirt could be worn as both skirt and even a shouderless dress when I saw it online, so BOOM! It's transformed into the perfect summer dress!!!! The look is definitely appropriate for any occasion.
When wearing as a dress, I wore it high and belted right under the breast. That way I can create the magic of having longer legs and a nice effect to balance the whole look. I wanted to go for a marine-inspired color palette so I paired the dresswith NEW lovely blue metallic sandals and white crisp shirt knotted around the belt, to blend with the colors of the dress. Also, I like the pop of blue on my earrings and they match with the sandals! When the wind blows, the dress becomes more flattering by floating and billowing.
I styled my hair into a messy bun because I wanted to show off my décolleté line and add an extra sex appeal when I take off the shirt. It's summer so don't be shy to let some skin show! I actually didn't know when I did the updo, the pink hightlights would shine throught! Ohhhh I am sooooo in love with this hair!
Which look is your favorite look, with or without the shirt? I know it's kinda hard to decide, isn't it? Because both looks are so lovely either way!
Of course I created another look wearing this midi skirt as-is! So stay tuned for how I coordinated it <3
