I found a dress (on sale!) that incorporates three of my favorite things: off-the-shoulder style, embroidery and sequins! It’s a trifecta. This perfect group of three elements is combined beautifully in this easy to wear, pull over style dress. I’m loving the light pink fabric with the neon orange embroidery, it’s so summer! The elastic neckline allows me to wear this dress two ways, with the neckline around my shoulders or pulled down off-the-shoulder. Made from 100% cotton, this lightweight dress is ideal for hot days because it breathes and it isn’t tight. I have already worn it over a swimsuit as a chic beach cover-up that took me from the beach to the local ice cream store. Or, I can wear it out for dinner with some chunky beaded necklace and bracelets and flats.
When accessorizing an off-the-shoulder dress, I prefer keeping the necklace simple and making sure that it is the perfect length. You want a necklace that falls around the collarbone, and a choker-style necklace is definitely another option. Initially, I paired this with a vintage glass bead necklace, with pink and peach colored beads, but it didn’t pop. I love orange and the blue-green combo and decided to settle on necklace with turquoise accents and a stack of bead bracelets of my own design. For shoes, I think that flat sandals look best. Happy shopping!
