Recently i’ve been trying really hard to rework items in my closet from past seasons, or wear them in new ways. Last week I talked about a beloved knit vest from Zara that I have since worn as a scarf and as a layering piece during cooler evenings this Spring. One of the items that is the easiest to rework is the dress. This particular one is a skater skirt and the nipped waist lends it beautifully to layering.

I absolutely love the look of oxblood and white together and found it oddly appropriate for Spring when worn with casual flats and nude sunglasses. Paired with a hot pink lip and loose waves, it was the perfect outfit for dinner and drinks with friends.

One of the things I did to keep it more casual and not stuffy, was tie the end of the shirt and leave it somewhat messy rather than adding a belt or hiding the looseness. This made the outfit feel more effortless and gave me the easy option of removing the outer layer if I got too warm. I could easily see doing this with a slouchy printed t-shirt or sweater for an even more casual-chic look.
