I have a very feminine style. Not only do I love this style of dress, I also love the pattern. Add a light-weight jacket and it’s perfect for springtime! I would pair this with a jean jacket during the day. If I was wearing this dress out at night, I would choose a red blazer to dress it up a little. To not distract from this floral pattern, go with white wedges and a structured white purse with it. Add a red lip color, a few gold accessories, and you’ll be set to take on the town!

Like Ali, I love the feminine style of the Tank Dress with Gathered Skirt. The large scale, retro floral complements the feminine shape, so I’d make this dress in a similar print. The fun thing about florals is that have so many colors to pull from when it comes to choosing accessories. I’d play up the color with a coordinating bright shoe and stack of enamel bracelets.

I like to pair vintage style dresses with classic-meets-modern accents, like winged out eyeliner, cateye glasses, and a bright pink lip instead of traditional red. Chunky sandals and a little biker jacket instead of a proper sweater keep a girly dress on the casual side for day or nighttime. The White Biker Jacket has just the right tough style to top off this feminine dress, but I’d make it in classic black.

This dress is the essence of a summer dress, it is tank, flowy, floral, and cute! Here is show how I would dress up and down this summery dress… for a day of summer shopping or walking up the boardwalk all I would need to finish this dress off is a pair of Chucks, some lip balm and a cool fringe bag. To bring this dress into summer night fun, I would bring out my nicest handbag, a bold lip, and a nude heel.
