Remember this black and white Fight for Flight dress from a few days ago? Well I've been having some fun with it! If you're ever out shopping and happen to come across a neutral toned pinafore, I beg of you, buy it. This mustard suede one literally goes with everything. I'm hard pressed to find something it doesn't jive with, and I love how easy it is to make a fun outfit on the fly by just popping it over something. Now granted, I'm going to be wearing this tropical print dress on its own for most of the summer, but for the sake of the post I wanted to show you a more creative way you can wear such a bold pattern. I had a few comments where some of you love the tropical/Hawaii print trend, but feel like you look too crazy in it.
Which is understandable, not everyone is comfortable wearing loud patterns. But you can always quiet them down with a little bit of layers- like a pinafore or a vest! And before you ask me how I'm wearing two dresses at once- the pinafore is suede and so it's a thicker material (just like how a denim pinafore would be) and the Fight for Flight dress is thin and slinky. Because of that, it doesn't bunch and look bulky. If you have something like this in your closet, go try it! You might just like it :)
And Fight for Flight Vintage is a fun little boutique that has a sharp eye for 80's and 90's items. Right now they have an abundance of grungy flower dresses, printed high waist jeans, and leopard dresses! Here are some of my favorite picks from there to give you an idea of what they're all about:
