Spring Layering: Black and White Maxi Dress

I have had this bold black and white striped dress for years now and never really wore it until recently. The reason it lay in my closet for so long was because of the trendy style of the dress at the time. The style was just everywhere in the spring and summer of 2016 and I tell you; I really get put off when a particular style or fashion piece gets too trendy. I purchased this piece from eshakti at the time and there were other variations of it by other retailers like this Style here. So, the dress did sit in the closet for a before I decided to wear it to church a few weeks ago. Since the weather was still cold, I layered a black long sleeve tee underneath the dress for warmth and completed the look with a pair of black ankle boots, a black purse and red statement earrings for a pop of color. A long sleeve tee is the simplest piece to layer sleeveless dresses with in the cold season and the black color tee I am wearing here pairs effortlessly with this dress and creates the look of a one piece.

My tip for layering in the spring time then is to pick a piece that would go seamlessly with the dress that you are wearing in order to create a cohesive look. However, if you want to create a dramatic look, you can pick a piece that contrast with the dress in color or style. For example, if I wanted to create a mix print look, I would wear a striped or polka dotted long sleeve shirt underneath the dress and a piece preferably with neck tie would be just fine because it would really create some drama. Whatever choice of layering piece you decide to pair with your dress, just remember to have some fun.
