Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.
Talking about how to style a swing dress 5 ways in today’s post! I tried my swing dress on for you in yesterday’s Instagram stories and had so many DMs right away asking for different ways to style it that I just had to jump on the opportunity! I love styling items a few different ways to show their versatility. I love swing dresses because they are very forgiving (yet still cute), can be worn while pregnant, are comfortable & can be styled SO many different ways. I scored mine for $12 with code: STYLE at Old Navy! INSANELY cheap and I swear, you will LOVE this thing. I am 5’5 and I am wearing size small in the regular length BUT if you are taller than that, I suggest going with the “tall” option so that the length will work for you! Vice versa if you are petite 🙂
1.) Plain Jane | Wear it by itself without anything at all! I styled it with just booties and socks!
2.) Add Accessories | For this look I added a scarf, hat, & tights! Obviously with the cooler air rolling in, layers will be our best friend! You can always add your coat on top of this as well!
3.) Belt it & Add Over the Knee Boots | You can use a thin or wide belt here and add some over the knee boots! This would be a great cold weather option! I wear OTK socks with these boots because they stay up better that way 😉 You can use code: GM106146 for 40% off the boots!
4.) Add a cocoon cardigan & booties | If it’s chilly outside, add a pom hat, tights & scarf! This cocoon cardigan is from Target but it’s still not available online 🙁
5.) Style it with a sweater on top | An easy way to wear a swing dress is to layer it with a sweater on top! Cropped sweaters look really cute to because they can since the dress above the waist. Add OTK boots or ankle booties!
This sweater is 50% off if you have a Gap/Old Navy Card with code: FFCARD or 40% off if you do not have a card – code: HAPPY
I took these photos super quick outside our house yesterday and by the time we got to outfits 4 and 5, it was raining buckets out there so please excuse the extreme frizz and wet hair! Ha! The sunw was in and out and I have no idea where the rain storm came in but hey, you work with what you’ve got right?!
I would love to know which look is your favorite in the comments section below!
