STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Smock Dresses

There is simply no better way to say hello to summertime, then by being able to kick up your heels and throw on light weight clothing. Whether it’s your favorite T-shirt and boyfriend jeans or matching coordinate set, it’s time to give your skin an extra dose of Vitamin D.

One of the best ways our Fashionista loves to do this is through a constant reigning trend, smock dresses. Although these dresses first gained their momentum in the maternity world, they’ve stuck around for years since, proven to be having more than just a moment. Between their voluminous cuts, various prints and figure-friendly style, they’re definitely a must-have for summer. Not to mention, these dresses are incredibly versatile!

When styling a smock dress, because the fabric is so flouncey it’s important to maintain balance throughout your look. Whether it’s through adding a belt to cinch the waist if it’s too flouncey, or opting for this season’s chunky heel or ankle boot to give you length, pick one and stick with it.

Take a tip from this Fashionista, a marketing coordinator at Keep. Given that her office provides a more creative space, she’s able to give her smock dress a bohemian feel that’s professional enough for the workplace. She’s sporting a lilac smock dress with lace details, a bunch of Michelle DaRin accessories, fringe booties and some midi rings for an added flair.
