It’s easy to get overwhelmed with trends and people telling you what’s in and what’s not. I totally get it! I’m a firm believer that trends are there for inspiration and don’t necessarily have to dictate your wardrobe from head to toe.
The way I go about trends is using them as a reference when I want to add new pieces to my seasonal wardrobe and most importantly, I take note of what fits my body type and personal style. For me, it’s important to stay true to what makes me feel comfortable and confident without buying into a trend just because it’s everywhere.
One trend I’m loving because of its versatility is the tie neck detail. It’s such an easy and effortless way to elevate a look and it works across the board. You can incorporate this detail in dresses, blouses, even with a scarf. It’s simply all about choosing which option works best for your style.
This dress is a great example of a floral print perfect for transitional weather. The combination of deep colors, long sleeves, and tie neck detail take this dress from a potentially “summer” dress and help it work for in-between weather that’s not only great for day but night events as well.
I also decided to pair it with a deep, merlot lip to accentuate the burgundy florals on the dress. This color is one of my all-time favorite reds because it’s flattering for all skin tones and since the applicator comes in pencil form, you can apply the color evenly and precisely without a lip liner.
How do you feel about the tie neck detail? I think it’s such a simple feature that adds just a touch of class and elegant style.
