FashionSummer Dress Style: Style Your Basic Dresses for Any Occasion!

Stuck in a fashion rut? Let us help you bring out the best of your basic summer dresses for any occasion! ‘Tis the season for weddings, BBQs, graduations, beach parties and more, and these three dresses can be worn in three totally different ways to get you through in ultimate style!

A basic like the High Line White Shift dress can easily be dressed up or down! For a more formal party we’ve added elegant, simple gold jewelry, heels, and a chic clutch. For BBQ vibes or mixing up your everyday look, just add denim cutoffs, oversized sunnies, and sleek slides; and for a stylish beach day, throw it over your swimsuit, add a beach bag, and a fun straw hat!

When we think summer, we think maxi dresses, and the For Life Golden Yellow Embroidered Maxi Dress is always a fashion win! The bright and sunny yellow hue keeps you on-trend, while the flowy maxi length is wedding guest (and dance floor!) appropriate! For elegant affairs, dress it up with a bold lip, statement earrings, and a flirty lace-up heel! Pair it down for a backyard kickback with flat sandals, a fun belt, and a mini backpack, and keep it cute at parties for dads and grads with simple jewelry, modest heels, and a chic bag.

FashionHow to Wear It: Mixed Metals

We firmly believe that fashion rules were meant to be broken, (who doesn’t wear white after Labor Day anyway?) and with that we say go ahead and mix metals, and look chic doing it! Sticking to one color scheme when it comes to jewelry is boring, so here are some of our expert tips on how to mix and match all your silver, gold, and rose gold pieces!

mixed metals - necklaces

Focus on one area of the body: Choose a focal point such as the neck, ears, or wrist, and mix and match as you like! For necklaces, a cool layered necklace like the Valletta Gold Layered Necklace, with a chic choker like the Bar None Sterling Silver Choker Necklace , creates the perfect amount of layers and textures for a Boho-inspired silver and gold look that is sure to garner some compliments!

mixed metals - earrings and bracelets

Gold and rose gold are a natural combo, and the cool geometric shape of the Christina Rose Gold Rhinestone Earrings mixed with a basic rhinestone stud like the Simple Love Gold Rhinestone Earrings goes together perfectly, or go for a structured bracelet like our Above the Bar Silver Bracelet layered with gold bangles or a vintage gold watch.

mixed metals - rings

More is more: Go ahead and layer it on thick! Create the ideal Boho-chic look with layers upon layers of  your choice of necklaces, bracelets, and rings–get creative! Here we styled the Knot Not Down Gold Ring Set  and the Truly Lovely Silver Rhinestone Ring Set, just add a fresh mani, and you’re Instagram ready!

mixed metals - heirloom

Go high-low: It’s fun to stay on-trend, but incorporating pieces that are uniquely you is timeless! Go ahead and layer a trendy ring set with your wedding ring, or incorporate an heirloom necklace with a choker, or anything vintage or antique that you’ve been dying to show off!
