How I style my Vintage Blue Midi dress

I particularly remember coming across this dress and instantly falling in love with it. I picked this outfit from a store, which had piles of export dresses. In a room full of fabrics, this was the one outfit that I could not keep down.

It is a British button through blue midi dress. The fabric used to make the dress is called seersucker, which is light in weight and is perfect for summers or day time outings. The dress also flaunts minute floral patterns which give the dress a nice ‘young’look.It has a prominent summery and vintage vibe to it.

I remember how the first time I got into the dress, I felt like I had time travelled to the Victorian era and was an elite young lady, waiting for her wagon to take her to wherever her heart desires. Wishful thinking, right?

But a girl can always dream:)

Back to the dress, I admit that it was an impulsive buy. It was only when I bought this piece home , that I realised that I need to style my dress the right away to make it look effortless.

So, here are a few tips I would give if you are considering to flaunt a midi dress look:

  1. Buying is the easy part

You don’t agree with me? Well you should try buying a perfect outfit, only to find that its sleeves are a bit too floppy and dangly, and the dress does not hug your curves like you want it to.

So, the first thing I did after buying my dress,  was having a dress fitting at home and figuring out the measurements. Once I had the measurements, I rushed to my tailor and got it altered.

A shopping tip I abide by, if you fall in love with a piece but don’t find your size, grab a size or two bigger. And then just let your tailor work his magic!

  1. Accessorizing  the dress

If you are going for a simple dress, add a belt or some chunky silver jewellery to accentuate the dress. Just make sure that you don’t overdo it and pair the right accessory with the dress.You can also pair up the dress with a bomber jacket or a leather jacket and go for a rugged look.

I chose my tan belt with a cute bow at its center, to give make sure that the dress does not look too boxy and hugs by body perfectly.

  1. Ditch your boring shoes

As they say, “People make shoe contact before eye contact.”  When it comes to picking a pair for a midi dress, the best options are pointed heels, heel pumps or the classic boots.

To make a statement, wear a pair of bright shoes.

  1. Going bold with the lipstick

Don’t shy away from flaunting bold lips!

I chose a purple stain to go with my light blue midi dress. It turned out perfect as the purple stain gave the entire look more edge.

  1. Specs Appeal

Geek is indeed the new chic. Add some frames to the picture, and you are good to go.

I finished my look by adding my favourite pair of golden framed glasses.
