La Robe Bolso linen dress
Hey guys! Decided it’s been a while since I’ve done a post about multi-styling a piece, so here’s three different ways to wear a classic summer look.
A key tip to making a worthwhile purchase is considering if the piece is an investment. I always try to get the most wear out of my garments. In these photos, I am modeling this minimalistic Jacqumes dress in a size S. I’m 5’2”, and if I wear 3” heels it’s perfectly leveled to the floor. What I love about this dress is how incredible the fit was. Something important to look out for when investing in an item is the build of the garment itself. Paying attention to small details like stitching and draping can reflect how well a piece of clothing was made, and indicates its longevity. I love a good hourglass figure look and this dress accentuates curves in the right places to truly flatter my figure.
What I love about this particular dress is its duality of elegance and versatility. The draping of this dress adds the illusion of structure, yet the lightweight fabric and clean lines makes it the perfect summer go-to. The designer, Simon Porte Jacquemus launched his own label at just 19 years old, and has quickly risen to fame within the fashion industry. His youth and innovative thought process is expressed in every single piece, as seen in this elusive dress.
Below is my take on channeling different looks:
THE BOLD LIP
For this first look, I paired the dress with a light wash denim jean with a slight flare at the bottom. Both the flare and the ankle-length crop of this pant follow the natural contour of the dress, which accentuates the hour glass figure as well as the length. For a bold pop I kept a neutral scarf and blouse but a bright red lip, creating an easy and adaptable look.
This second look followed a minimalist yet street vibe. For an easy yet chic fit, I kept an all black ensemble and threw on my favorite comfy Prada cloudbust sneakers. I paired this with a Blue Steel Solid turban wrap to bring in color, the epitome of hijabi summer coping. Am I hypebae yet? 😂👏
Over Accessorize It
What truly makes this white linen dress an investment is how Jacquemus offered a plain canvas to paint with. This is where I had a little fun and stacked necklaces (peep the custom made “Marwa” necklace in Arabic by Nominal.X) and added a sharp fitted hat. By slouching the dress down my shoulders, it does a neat little trick by drawing one’s eye to my neckline, thereby highlighting my accessories and further appreciating the art of the designer’s vision.
