Two Ways To Wear An Off Shoulder Dress: Outfit Proposals

I promised to show you another way to style this white off shoulder dress /tunics, haven't I? I already wore it with white jeans, and today I'm going to show you how to wear it with a red floral skirt. This vintage floral skirt comes from a matching set (I'll show you more photographs bellow). If you own a matching set, there is no need to limit yourself to wearing it in the same way. You can always mix and match. For example, in the outfit you can see bellow, the floral details on the off shoulder dress/blouse match really well with the floral details on the skirt. It's a different floral print, but it looks nice worn together. At least I think so! White and red is always a winning combo if you ask me. There is something about the combination of those two colours that is always eye-catching. Throw in some blue and caramel details and I'm happy as I can be. I guess I'm just a girl who loves colours.

Wearing dresses as blouses is nothing new to me. I love dresses and skirts so it makes sense to pair them together. Do more of what you love, wear more of what you love. This habit of pairing skirts and dresses might even be the reason why I don't have many tops in my closet. Why should I buy top and blouses when I can tuck dresses into skirts. If you prefer to wear pants this is a little harder to do, but there is always a way. I wrote more about layering summer dresses in this post, so check it out if you're looking for some inspiration. My ideas for layering summer dresses include : wearing a vest with it, wearing a cropped top over it, wearing a body chain over it, wearing a scarf around your waist, wearing a scarf as a poncho , wearing a regular poncho, wearing a skirt over it, wearing dresses with jeans or jeggings,  wearing it with leggings, wearing it with shorts, wearing a crochet or sheer jacket over it. Do you have any ideas to share?


When it comes to styling this white off shoulder dress on its own, I opted to pair it with pink heels. What is more feminine than pink heels, right? White and pink colour combo is perfect if you want to create a softer look. I like both outfits, but I think the one with the red skirt is more versatile. On its own, this white dress is a bit short for my taste. Most of the time I wear it with leggings and jeans. But I does look cute on its own! 




If you scroll down, you'll see how I styled this vintage red skirt on its own. The photograph bellow shows me wearing it over a romper! I find rompers very practical in Summer, and I often pair them with skirts. Rompers can be used as tops in the same way as dresses. It's a great way to save on packing and closet space. It's fun figuring out different ways to wear something, isn't it!

Another way to style a red floral skirt is to pair it with stripes- see more here

  1. Hi dear? i love both styling. I like it better as a dress. I also think such pieces are so great to have in a wardrobe since they can be restyled in different ways. Kisses!

  2. That is such a lovely dress and it looks great with the skirt over it! It's a nice combination of colours as you said too. I like the skirt over dress trick if a dress is too short, haha! :) Easy to throw a maxi skirt over it.

    Hope that you are having a lovely week so far :)

  3. You shared some great tips on ways to style dresses. One that I also like is to wear a dress with a faux leather jacket. I feel like it gives it a different vibe.

  26. Hello Ivana, as usual I'm impressed by your creativity! You are right - a matching set must not necessarly be worn together and you had really a great idea to wear the white off-the-shoulder dress as tunic together with the skirt. The combination is beautiful and I love also the dress without any other garment (despite the beautiful pink shoes). Thanks for sharing your inspirations!

WHAT IS AN IDEAL MAXI DRESS FOR A SUMMER VACATION?

Hello, lovely readers! Summer is finally here. Are you as excited about summer as I am? Today I'm back with another summer styling, and this time it's about a white floral maxi dress. I love white items for the summer, and if they come with a floral print even better. If you read my last post, you know that I decided to welcome the summer in bay Torac (on island Hvar, Croatia). I told you that one of the first things I packed was a yellow jumpsuit as it is a good vacay item and so easy to throw on when you're at the beach. Another essential vacation classic is a maxi dress. This white maxi dress with a cute floral print proved to be the perfect vacation item because it is so easy to dress up and down (for example, here you can see how I styled this maxi with kitten heels). I actually got this white maxi dress as a part of a collaboration review post last year. Today you can see me wearing it in a more dressed down summer version, with tropical print sandals (same here) an…

STYLING A YELLOW JUMPSUIT FOR SUMMER ( BAY TORAC, ISLAND HVAR)

How to style a yellow floral jumpsuit for summer? You know when I packed for island Hvar (Croatia), this yellow jumpsuit was one of the first things I packed. I don't wear jumpsuits and playsuits that often during the colder months but I opt for them often enough when it gets warmer. One great thing about a floral jumpsuit is that it is a statement piece on its own. That means that styling it is quite easy. Another advantage of this kind of garment is that you can easily dressed up or down. I wore this yellow jumpsuit to beach, so I dressed it down with a beach bag and white sandals. If I were to dress it up, I would probably pair it with heels (as I did here and here). 
Jumpsuits are simply ideal for vacation wear. They are so easy to thrown on. I like to wear them over swimsuits for that beach chic look. I got this jumpsuit in a collaboration last year, and I'm still not bored of it. I definitely plan to wear it a lot for my island Hvar trip. Yellow is such a great colour f…

A PRINTED DRESS FOR CATCHING A FERRY IN SUCURAJ, ISLAND HVAR (CROATIA)

What to wear when you're travelling? In summer, I often opt for print dresses because they are fun and seem to go well with anything. I packed quite a few printed dresses for my visit to island Hvar (Croatia). As long as the dresses are comfortable, they are my 'go to' travel outfit. This mixed print dress is one of my favourite travel summer dresses. You have seen me wear it a lot on this blog, especially for hiking and sightseeing (and you know I believe in shopping one's closet). It's a great day to night dress as well, quite easy to dress up and down. My outfit proposal of the day is more casual in tone so you could said that I dressed the dress down. The shoes I choose to go along with this dress are printed sandals from Art brand. I bought them when I was in Split last spring and they're super comfortable (not sponsored).  I also wore a backpack because they are more practical for travelling. I have quite a pragmatic mind when it comes to fashion, and I …
