6 Easy Ways to Style a Dress

When I bought this fabulous dress from Anthropologie back in June (post here), I mentioned how fun it would be to style it with a bunch of different toppers – like a button up shirt, a cardigan, a jacket, etc. So, I’m putting my money where my mouth is – or my photos where my musing led – and decided to throw together 6 easy ways to style a dress! (I also couldn’t resist having my own ‘movie makeover montage moment’ on Instagram Reels…)

The dress I’m wearing in each photo is the Tiered Abstract Maxi Dress from Anthropologie and you can find it here.

  1. Alone
  2. Add a belt
  3. Top with a bright colored cardigan
  4. Try a tied up short-sleeve shirt (bonus points for a second pattern!)
  5. Wear a moto jacket
  6. Knot a denim shirt

You probably have many of these items already sitting in your closet. If not, the thrift stores are overflowing with great options. In fact, other than the dress every other item I used was purchased secondhand through thrift stores or Poshmark!

Which is your favorite?

  1. They are all great ways to style it. I can’t believe it, I have a very similar dress that I had no idea how to style. I have a denim jacket, and a cardigan somewhere in my closet. Thanks! Great ideas, as always.
