How to Style a Sleeveless Dress
I love the versatility of sleeveless dresses! Thus I show you different ways to combine the beautiful Annie Swing Dress by Dolly and Dotty. I find that this pin up style dress has even a pop art vibe to it. What is more, the stylish floral design reminds me of a modern graphic print. So I feel this goes perfectly with the 1950s style pin up silhouette.
Versatility of Sleeveless Dresses
Of course, you can always wear a sleeveless dress on its own. However, when it gets chilly, I like to combine the dress with a blouse underneath. In the picture below, I am layering the dress with a vintage black bow tie blouse by Madeleine.
By the way, I’ve thrifted this black silk blouse a while ago at momox fashion. This is a really great online shop. Thus, you can find good secondhand items to affordable prices there.
Additionally, you may also combine the dress with a short-sleeved blouse like this one by The Seamstress of Bloomsbury. Hence, I just can’t stress it enough! I am in love with the blouses and dresses by the Seamstress! Thus, if you’d like to learn more, check out my post about the navy Lisa-Mae dress.
Shootings Make Me Happy!
On my recent shooting, I wore this swing dress with a creme-coloured blouse and a green cardigan by Voodoo Vixen. I chose these plum-coloured Charlie Stone Vienna booties to go with my outfit. However, I am not sure if this is the perfect colour combo? Anyways, I think these shoes are very comfortable. Hence, I am sure red shades go with plum. I’ve got these booties via TopVintage Sale by the way.
In fact, vintage dresses are made for layering! I dare say it takes some courage. However, I would wear a summer dress in colder seasons too. The secret is just to find suitable items for layering!
Did I mention that photoshootings make me happy? I love to get ready for shootings and pick out some outfits to present my vintage style. I live in the moment and forget my worries when taking pictures.
Last but not least, I like wearing a black bolero with this swing dress. I guess this is the most 1950s fashion like combination. In the picture below I am wearing the Pointelle Ajour Bolero by Banned Retro. I think it is still available at Peggy Sue Vintage.
Summing up, I love sleeveless dresses because of their versatility. They are my favourite dresses next to shirt dresses. I hope you enjoyed my tipps on how to style the Annie Swing Dress by Dolly and Dotty. Let me know in the comments below!
