Here's How We Would 'A-Dress' You

Sarah and I were recently invited to speak to a group of aspiring fashionistas about the subject of style! We happily accepted, and since it was a co-ed crowd, we decided to deliver an oration about the utility of unisex garments. Are you and your boyfriend or roommate on a tight budget? Instead of turning down the thermostat to chilly temperatures, why not save cash by sharing accessories suitable for both sexes? To drive home our point, Sarah and I made an example of the epicene Keynote Necklace. Want to unlock the formula for pulling off a Unisex-y look with this piece of jewelry? Then simply abide by these three steps.

Step one: Confidence is key

Dare to be dazzling, and it’ll pay off with many compliments and much admiration! Beneath the brassy gleam of her Keynote Necklace, which is mirrored in the gilded trim of her Veronica Heels, Sarah looks absolutely glamorous in the vibrantly emerald Grecian Green Dress. The subdued black hues of her Cosmopolitan Cape and dainty Dark Shadows Gloves belie their superb sophistication, and fewer things are finer than a floral headpiece such as the Elegance in Bloom Headband.

Step two: Take note of trends

Skeleton key necklaces currently are one of the ‘it’ accessories. An iconic symbol of access, the Keynote Necklace will open up many new doors for your wardrobe!

Step three: Make it your own

The fact that the Keynote Necklace is available for purchase on a women’s clothing website didn’t stop me from accenting my outfit with it. I made it appropriately masculine by letting the brilliance of this neckpiece speak for itself against a subtle outfit of a black button-up, black trousers, and a grey cardigan. Then I punctuated this statement with a brazen, butterscotch-colored, crocodile-print pair of loafers.

What about you, ModReaders – do you find yourselves adhering to any fundamentals of fashion?

    Richard you are sooo cute.

    Sarah….wow that dress, you should wear more of the stuff on this site and it would probably sell out!

    Ah you all look sooo fine!
    I love this idea of unisex clothes; I always go in my boyfriend’s closet and pilfer his flannel shirts, T-shirts, and blazers all the time. It’s so much fun when you use your imagination and also get to save a buck!

    Hey! What size dress is Sarah wearing? I’m thinking about buying the Grecian dress and me and her look about the same size.

    I love Sarah’s outfit!

    Nikki, I wouldn’t be a gentleman if I told you what size Sarah’s wearing. I highly recommend checking the measurements listed in the product’s page, and then compare those to a dress you already own that fits you perfectly. : )
