Dressing Down the Dress

Linnea White

Not every dress needs to be dressed up with heels and dolled up with feminine charm. I love taking an otherwise girly piece and dressing down the dress. And that's what this look is all about.

Sunny with a high of... 94!! That means this white tee is an optional layer. However, despite the rising temps, I decided to show how to layer a classically feminine Summer gingham dress for a casual, cool, relaxed vibe. From a crisp white tee to a graphic tee, this layering potential is endless - and effortless. Pair it with a statement bag, like this vintage wicker piece, and a pair of easy slide sandals or white kicks for that added element of cool.

How do you like to dress down a dress?!
