Four Ways - Ethnic Print Dress




With spring fast approaching one of my wardrobe "must haves" was a little cotton ethnic print dress. Since I can't wait until the weather warms up to wear it, I've found ways to layer until I can wear it on its own.
  • First I've layered the dress over a white tee and grey skinny jeans. Pair with some vintage boots and a big crocheted scarf and you're ready for those chilly pre-spring days.
  • For another cool weather option you can layer over a pair of tights and boots with a shrunken sweater.
  • When the weather starts to warm pair the dress with a vintage vest, over-the-knee socks and a pair of flat oxfords.
  • Finally, for those nice spring days, tuck the dress into a pair of baggy old cut-offs and pair with pretty wedge sandals.

Thanks so much everyone!

La Petite: Yes, the dress is thrifted. It was longer and has been cut off and hemmed.

Geek-Betty: I picked these socks up at the store where I used to work in LA but I've seen similar pairs at H&M and Urban Outfitters.
