When we think of layers we usually think of bundling up in a long cardigan over a favorite white tee, or chunky knit sweaters under jackets to add a little more style to a casual look. But I want to talk about another layering trend that I’m loving right now: layering dresses. Who remembers when this trend was popular in the 90’s? It was all about spaghetti strap tank tops and dresses over your t-shirt!

I love how simple and delicate this blush drop waist dress is, and I didn’t want that to get lost by covering it up with a jacket. Jackets also tend to change the look, and I wanted to keep this look feminine and classic. I love the details in my white lace blouse, and I knew that the blush would stand out perfectly over the white without overpowering it. So pairing the two together was a simple way to layer a dress in a way that was fresh and feminine.

When the weather warms up, this is a really easy look to dress down in sneakers or sandals too. These blush sneakers would work with a layered dress and tee look. The easiest way to make this trend causal is to find the right dress, which is usually a slip dress, in a fabric that isn’t too dressy.

  1. Leanne, what sort of tee would you suggest pairing with this in the summer?

    • I would do a simple short sleeved high round neck white tee + flats. I would be cooler and a bit dressed down for summer!
