Dressing up and dressing down dresses

Simply Sage Market

If there’s one piece in your closet that is ridiculously versatile, it’s a basic dress. One in a solid shade or with a small pattern can veer dressy or casual depending on how you style it.

For a casual look, think flats. Shoes without a heel are naturally more casual. This season we’re loving flats with a rounder toe or loafers. Another way to dress down the look is to add an unbuttoned cardigan on top. And for winter, a long-sleeved tee under a dress also equals a casual look.


Dressing up a basic dress is easy too. Add structure with a form-fitting jacket like this one. Heels are always good, and so is jewelry. For our tips on how to wear your jewelry this season, see this post.

One really great thing is that tights are still in, and you can—and should!—wear them with dresses for casual and fancy occasions.

As weather warms up, switch out tights for black leggings and wear them with flats. Your winter dresses will instantly look more appropriate for warmer weather, and you’ll get a chance to wear shoes you haven’t worn in awhile.

Treat yourself to a pretty dress between now and the end of the month to get 20 percent off! The code works for accessories too. Just use code DRESSUP20 at checkout.
