Hello my loves,
How are you doing? Hope your week is going great? I am sharing some fashion tips and tricks on the blog with you this week. Today, I am infusing one of my favorite jewel necklace by D’Accessory Place with one of my favorite Shift dress at the moment by AfroCreate. This is what I call a fashion win-win.
WHO IS THIS DRESS BY?
My dress was designed by my good friend and the mastermind behind the brand AfroCreate. This brand is a Grenadian brand that is on the rise and becoming a house hold name on our lovely Island Grenada. One of the things I love about this Brand is that they only create styles in African print – this is right up my alley because I love love and really love African prints.
HOW ELSE WOULD YOU STYLE THIS?
I wish I could style my looks in different ways for each fashion post. It’s something I am working on for future posts. I would style this with gladiator sandals, wedges or any flat sandals for a casual look.
I love this dress, how simple and cute it is with the colour doing all all of the talking. This alone is a conversation starter. I chose to wear it with a statement necklace to give it a big of vamp. This necklace by D’AccessoryPlace is stunning. My earrings are by SassyJones Boutique an online jewelry store that carries classic and contemporary jewelry pieces at amazing price points.
Here are my 3 simple rules when styling/choosing a Shift dress
. CHOOSE TAILORED SHIFT DRESSES
Some shift dresses are looser than others. Try to find one that is slightly tailored and skims your curves, so it is not too tight or too loose. If you’re a curvier girl, you should avoid the ones that are super billowy. Always look for shift dresses that have some structure and seaming at the bust and waist. I also ensure they aren’t too wide so they just skim past my hips.
PICK A BOLD COLOR OR PRINT
Sometimes shift dresses tend to be pretty plain. To make a shift dress more interesting, you should choose one with a bold print or bright color.
. CHOOSE CHUNKY JEWELRY
You can add some visual interest to the pretty simple shift dress shape by throwing on a bold cuff bracelet or a thick chunky necklace or long pendant necklace. Adding a piece of jewelry with a modern or artistic vibe can be a fun way to enliven the look.
