Styling a Strappy, Tiered Summer Dress With All The Accessories

The Power of Accessories: Styling a Tiered Summer Dress (yellow/black/white dress with raffia belt, white slider sandals, brown/ecru shoulder bag, yellow lens glasses & a straw trilby) | Not Dressed As Lamb

Dresses with tiered skirts seem to be this year’s style of choice, and I’m all over it.

Add a square neckline with straps and a few discreet ruffles and I’m happy as Larry. This dress* – part of my Instagram collab with JD Williams – came in a gorgeous mustard/black/ecru tropical floral print (I think? Would you say that’s tropical?) and I was challenged to style it my way.

So I COULD have left it as it was and just added shoes or sandals… but hey, this is me and I don’t do minimalism, do I?!

Therefore: enter a wealth of accessories. (It’s the only way I know how to roll.)

The bag* (sold out, sorry), belt* (only in black now, ughh this isn’t going well) and mule sandals* (the brand is Dune but available on the JDW website) were what I chose as part of the collab. I’ve already worn them all loads already, probably because they’re all neutral colours.

And a little note about those sunglasses… when I saw them I knew I HAD to have them – they’re almost identical to the black frame/yellow lenses glasses I had a pair of in the 90s. Except the shape was a lot more narrow back then. But a little nostalgia never hurt anyone, did it?!

Have you noticed how the tiered skirt shape is a bit of a thing this year (are you into the tiers)? And if you had a similar pair of glasses in the 90s – SHOUT!! lol ; -)

 

Stay safe, XOXO

    Fabulous dress, Catherine! I love the print and the colors and the tiers. You have accessorized it brilliantly! I really like your sandals, too. And the flat style of slide is so pretty with this dress, too. Great outfit!

    Gorgeous dress, and the belt MAKES the outfit (AND shows off your tiny waist)! Well-done, you!

    Love the print and your styling! Personally not a fan of the tiered trend that seems to be everywhere. Ruffles and fluff have never been my fashion choice. That said, you look wonderful!

      Thanks Christine – I’m not usually one for ruffles either but I thought they were quite subtle on this dress…!
