There is something so effortlessly chic about wearing solid colors. It is the easiest way to make an outfit look fresh off the runway. Solid colors make a statement without being too obvious. They can draw attention to you. They also draw attention to the other pieces in your ensemble. The simplicity that comes with a solid dress allows for other statements to be made in the outfit. Solids give you a base for trying out more daring fashion trends, like the mock neck style of this dress.

Let me stop you before you say it; solid colors are not boring. First of all, this dress has a subtle texture to it, which gives it depth. There are also endless ways to build upon it. This college Fashionista paired her dress with simple accessories including a watch. For other occasions, solids can be paired with statement accessories, a jacket or funky shoes. The possibilities are endless.

As the squirrels bury their nuts and the drug stores start selling Halloween candy, Fashionistas everywhere prepare their fall wardrobes. That is why solid colors are my style advice of the week. Add a denim jacket and a pair of booties to this outfit and suddenly it is fall ready. Can’t you picture yourself walking to class in a simple, solid dress? When all of the leaves are changing and the scenery becomes a work of art, solids stand out with refreshing simplicity.

So, yes, solids are simple, but in the best way! With opportunities galore and so many statements to be made, how can you resist adding just one more dress to your shopping cart? It is so versatile and there are so many ways to wear it. You will never regret having a solid colored dress.
