If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you may recall seeing this dress in a previous post. Oftentimes, I know people can be reluctant to wear bold prints more than once, especially on social media. I want to show that with a little remixing, you can confidently wear your bold prints quite often. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with wearing things the same way, but it’s always good to be creative with your look.
Initially, I wore this dress with a black belt and black heels. Recently, when I went out, I decided I wanted to wear this dress, but in a different way. Lately, the weather has been extremely hot during the day while cool at night. Since I was going to be out practically all day, I decided that my sleeveless jacket would be appropriate to pair with this dress. I added a belt, flat sandals and some accessories, and I was good to go.
Sometimes, we feel like we always have to go buy something new when we have somewhere special to go. Don’t be hesitant to shop your closet. A lot of times, what you have can be styled several ways, which gives you a plethora of options when it comes to your attire. Additionally, it’s always a positive thing when you don’t have to go spend money on clothing you may not necessarily need, which in turn, keeps more money in your pockets…and more money in your pockets is always a good thing!
Do you remix your pieces, in particular your bold prints? Let me know in the comments below!

Love that dress and vest on you! I thought the dress was vintage. It has such a great, classic feel. I always try to remix items in my closet. One way I remix pieces is by buying sets like a suit or matching top/skirt and remix them with other items. This was great when I was working in an office setting.
Thank you! Buying sets and remixing them is a great idea!
Love this look, especially the colors. I would’ve never thought of pairing the dress with the metallic accessories. I like!
Yes, metallic accessories can go with almost anything! Thanks for stopping by!
