This is a story of three friends who trade texts and photos with outfit ideas, dinner plans, and parenting struggles. And, these three friends also share a common love for a grey jersey dress.
Now, mind you, we don’t share the dress – we each have our own dress. And we each have very unique styles, which makes this post all the more fun! Keep reading to learn how each woman has styled her dress based on her own aesthetic and fashion favorites.
Personal style: eclectic, boho, comfortable
Fashion favorites: lace, slouchy necklines, great shoes, mixed metals, vintage jewelry, toe cleavage, hats, red lipstick, and big hair
Fashion rules to live by: “I love the juxtaposition in personal style: fancy & laid-back, edgy & girly, moto with lace. These contrasts are what create your own look.”
Kirsty pairs her ruched dress with a contrasting tough-gal, moto vest with varying textures; adding interest and making her look unique. Just when you might expect a moto bootie, Kirsty then adds a lace-up pump – a perfect combination of sweet and tough. To top off her neutral outfit, she adds just a hint of color with her aqua earrings…her personal design. And don’t forget the red lip!
Personal style: classic, preppy with an eye towards current trends
Fashion favorites: stripes, navy, patent leather, skinny jeans, pattern-mixing, all things nautical
Fashion rules to live by: “An updated purse or shoe can make any staple piece look current.”
True to her personal style, Jacqueline adds a little edge to her otherwise lady-like ensemble. The structured bag has studs and the peep-toe booties are a fun trend to try instead of a tried-and-true pump. Finally, she then adds a twist to a classic navy jacket and scarf combo with a leather moto-style jacket, and a leopard and skull patterned scarf.
Personal style: edgy, sophisticated yet casual
Fashion favorites: denim, suede, zipper detailing, leopard, studs, leather accents, layered accessories, black and grey, texture
Fashion rules to live by: “When it comes to accessorizing, the more the better! Accessories make an outfit unique and bring a look together.”
In an effort to create a casual look, Jenn pairs her jersey dress with wedge sneakers, a plaid flannel shirt, and a baseball hat. To keep the ensemble from being too sloppy, she then adds a structured, mini cross-body bag and layered, delicate necklaces. This look says she’s ready to tailgate…in style.
