Dress it Up: The Utility Dress
If you pop into stores today, you will most likely see spring making its way in. One item that is guaranteed to be hanging front and center is the utility dress, an easy and sophisticated dress for any woman. Check out Gap for an affordable version.
So how do you dress up this little number? I suggest Parisian Chic and Upper East Side Twist.
Parisian Chic, layers the dress over a basic striped long-sleeve tee and ties a printed scarf with red accents around the neck. Add some riding-inspired boots, a simple shoulder bag and a leather watch for some country-side glamour.
Upper East Side Twist, channels the chic women of New York City, keeping it simple with muted platform sandals, an earth-tone belt at the waist, and gold accessories. The twist is to pull on some schoolgirl socks to send it over the edge with style.
