Anyone else tired of wearing the same athlesiure look 4 days in a row? As I sit here twiddling my lip that has not been waxed in 4 months, I find myself dreaming of actually getting dressed. Not decked out like I used to, but just putting a little bit of effort into myself. While fashion trends might not be as big a focal point as they once were, women are women and we want to feel pretty.
The NY Times Style section recently featured a piece on the come back of the housedress. Yes, the the style d’jour of the 1950’s housewife is back (with a twist, obvi) and I have to say, I am all in. Below are some of my topics for how to feel chic, even if all you’re doing is staying home- and the best part, most of them are on sale!
This Fraiche by J faux wrap dress has a lot going for it, paramount of all is the elastic waist perfect for that Quaratine 15. The tie dye print is also super on trend and perfect for summer. Chic with a flat slide or more sporty with a sneaker, this dress is super versatile.
This Free People Pintuck Maxi is a dream. Sexy worn on its own with the deep plunge, you can also layer over a fitted t-shirt for a more modest and sporty look. I am nuts for anything olive green, but it also comes in a beautiful lilac or ivory.
I am obsessed with this Elan V-Neck maxi. The price point cannot be beat ($78), it has pockets and looks impossibly chic with a few layered gold necklaces and a slide.
Does this Billabong x Sincerely Jules maxi not scream summer fiesta?! Even if you’re not attending any summer soirees, why not look like you could be?
I’d like to picture myself wearing this Sandro dress with chic slippers whilst sipping a martini. Realistically I’d most likely be chasing my kids around spilling coffee all over it, but hey, a girl can dream with a dress like this.
I love, love, love this LINI Hallie dress. Adorable with sandals or sneakers now and even better in the fall paired with booties.
The ultimate house dress remix, this Topshop Midi Dress flatters every body. The neutral hue suits almost every skin tone and the drawstring neck allows for varying degrees of modesty.
This Free People Maya Shirtdress is perfect for warm summer days- whether you’re running errands or throwing it over a bathing suit (unbuttoned of course) for a day at the beach.
