Yesterday’s look (here if you missed it) showed how Kate Spade might have styled this dress…
Today, I’m going to show you how the Madewell brand might style it.
A lot of layering (dress + sweater + vest + scarf), a little masculine (hello oversized sweater and menswear flats), and a little classic color combination (gray and red is perfect for fall).
Take that all and wrap it up with a bit of plaid (the Madewell website is covered in plaid right now), and you’ve got a totally different look than yesterday’s classy ensemble.
One that’s a whole lot more casual, but just as fun.
I honestly can’t decide which look I like better. The Kate Spade-inspired look is perfect for champagne parties, and the Madewell-inspired look is perfect for more casual shindigs.
