A simple green dress from Ann Taylor and a couple of ideas…

Just a few words of caution – firstly wear Spanx because this slinky fabric (95% Polyester and 5% Spandex) is not forgiving and secondly if it is a hot day and you will be perspiring do not wear this dress, it will show everything. Just need to be prepared for this.

A chunky statement necklace is the easiest way to accessorize this dress.

Adding a great blue (I had to pair it with navy) blazer makes it that much more office ready – black, grey or even brown would work as well. You all know how much I love navy…
I decided to try a thick belt with this dress as well and really like how it looks. If I had selected a skinny belt I would have added a chunky necklace for more visual interest.
Dress – Ann Taylor
Blazer – J Crew
Shoes – Christian Louboutin
Bracelets – The Bay
Necklace – LTS
Watch – Michael Kors
Belt – BCBG

    Lovely color! But after reading what you wrote about it, I don’t think I would dare to wear it, haha! I think I would want to wear something with similar style and color but in different material.
