With school, work, and fall activities in high gear, it’s important to have a versatile go-to dress to depend on. Inspired by a question by customer Kristin S. on the ModStylists’ Facebook page, the ModStylists tackled the task of styling the Blue and Me Forever Dress four ways. With each ModStylist taking a different colorway of the frock and following their own style cues, they fashioned four looks that will have you wondering if it’s really the same dress!
DAY ‘N’ NIGHT — “For the black version of this dress, I wanted to give it a simple day-to-night look,” says ModStylist Kelly, who pictured wearing this out to a dinner or fun shopping date. “Try pairing it with bright leggings, a statement necklace, and boots to really make it pop!”
IT’S CASUAL – ”To create a more casual look, I left the dress open and layered it over skinny jeans and a lace peplum top,” says ModStylist Chelsey. “Coupled with camel booties, a gold pendant, and my favorite bow ring, this look is great for daytime activities or a casual Friday at work.”
DATE NIGHT – Amy styled the rich cobalt version of the Blue and Me Forever Dress with a dinner date or outdoor wedding in mind. “I kept it simple yet a little dressed up,” says Amy. “The polka-dot tights and envelope-inspired purse add a bit of fun to the outfit. I love the versatility of this piece — it can be worn for so many occasions!”
FOR THE WHIM – ModStylist Jess knew she wanted a fun, lighthearted look, and gravitated towards whimsical accessories such as a rainbow bracelet and sparkly silver shoes. “I knew I wanted to incorporate the cat-printed tights into my outfit, and juxtaposed them with the bright kelly green of the dress and black-and-white stripes of the bag. By adding an adorable boombox necklace, rainbow bracelet, and silver shoes, I think this look has a modern ’80s vibe! Even though this isn’t my usual style, I really love the final look.”
ModStylists’ Tips for Versatile Styling
- Add statement accessories — Chunky necklaces, patterned tights, or whimsical bags can transform even the most basic dress into something unique!
- Think outside the box – Wear that item in an unexpected way. If it’s a button-down dress or top, try wearing it open as a layering piece. This extends the versatility, giving you yet another way and opportunity to wear it!
- Have fun – Make the look your own, whether it’s tossing your favorite striped leggings or signature necklace into the mix!
