Today I am styling the long cardigan I shared in a previous post with a striped dress. This cardigan dress, from Gap, is so versatile, and I promised to show you what it might look like as a dress.
At the right is the cardigan with a striped dress, also from Gap.
It is always a good idea to find wardrobe pieces that can be styled in more than one way. This cardigan does just that since it can be worn as a cardigan over almost anything and also as a dress.
The buttons go almost all the way up the front and allow this to be worn as a midi dress.
I decided to add a silver-toned belt to give the dress some definition, but it looked good without it as well. And my tote bag is in a great shade of a pinkish tan that is a very nice neutral.
I styled the dress with this soft-toned animal print scarf to add interest. I also added my gold filigree earrings. I used to think you had to wear silver accessories with gray but am finding that adding gold accessories gives an outfit a nice, rich look. The buckle on the belt also has a touch of gold. I am wearing it with my tan block-heeled sandals, which look great with gray and ties in with the scarf.
I changed it up a bit here to show you another way to style the dress monochromatically. I changed the scarf for a multi-strand necklace with blue, gray, silver and gold, along with my gray crossbody bag and blue-gray mules. (Well, OK, only on one foot! Ugh!) Just another example of how you can use pieces you already own to make a whole new outfit. And to show you how a single shade can create a great look, too.
Tomorrow I will share another all-gray outfit, so please be sure to check in!
