Challenge: How to Style a Wrap Dress from DressBarn! Solution: With Bling
In my mind DressBarn is not known for their selection of trendy styles. So when I received an e-mail asking me to join fellow bloggers Lara of Pretty Connected, Melissa of The Fat Apple NYC, Makeda of Glamazon Diaries and Jordanna of The Fashionisette, to style Dressbarn’s Flutter Sleeve Ruffle Wrap Dress ($39.99), I was completely apprehensive about undertaking the task. I just didn’t think I would be able to style the dress with gusto but I am not one to turn down a challenge (you should see me try to tap dance when I challenged – its tragic) so I gave it a shot. And, I am glad I did.
It turns out my reservations were unwarranted. I was able to create a slew looks that were effortless and chic. When I wore the dress I got so many compliments from friends and fellow bloggers. One even screamed “You look HOT!” On that day I paired the dress (pictured above) with a pair of Rockport shoes, a yellow Liberty of London for Target yellow printed jacket, a LOFT necklace, Lucky Brand earrings, and a crystal salamander bracelet.
I also paired the dress with pumps, and a bright orange clutch, and a blazer. In end I found the wrap dress ( available in Size 4 – 24) with its ruffled edges, along with tie waist, flattering and versatile. How would you style this dress?
