Print dresses can be so easy to style with the right combination of print, color, and silhouette. I absolutely love prints, the bolder the better. Over the years, though, I’ve had to become more discriminating when choosing prints for my wardrobe because printed pieces can quickly look dated. To ensure I find pieces that I’ll want to wear again and again, I look for sophisticated styles with simple silhouettes and playful patterns that offer lots of opportunities to style and restyle.
Dress: Kate Spade (few sizes on eBay too)
Clutch: Kate Spade (similar)
Today, I’m wearing my Kate Spade Landcape dress (seen before here) that I found for a steal at a Kate Spade outlet store at the Premium Outlets. I wanted this Havana-inspired print dress two years ago when it first released and still loved it two months ago when I found it on clearance. Why? Its fit-and-flare silhouette is always flattering, and its bold but understated landscape print features colors I love to wear.
This cotton dress is also quite versatile, and hence easy to dress up and down. I’ve worn it belted with yellow pumps for a night at the opera. Today, I’m wearing it with black strappy sandals and a yellow clutch for date night. I can also create a casual day look by wearing it with my orange d’Orsay flat sandals (seen in this post). This dress is so breezy, comfortable, and easy-to-wear that I envision sporting it for a long time.
