I definitely go through phases with trends. Some days, I want to try everything and other days I want to stick to simple basics. Oftentimes (like what’s been happening lately), I will find one trend that I like and buy several different pieces to wear because I like it so much. Lately I’ve been into lace up details and cutouts. This lace up dress started it all. I’ve been wanting a short dress with sleeves and I loved the lace up neckline on this so much that I’ve been buying “all the lace up things” ever since.
Dresses are by far my favorite piece of clothing to wear but very rarely do they have sleeves! I end up layering my short sleeve and sleeveless dresses with tights and cardigans as it gets cooler. I’ve been looking for some long-sleeved dresses that I don’t have to cover up as soon as the temperature dips. That’s why I loved this dress as soon as I saw it! The longer sleeves definitely add some warmth but the short length keeps it from looking too dowdy. I love the soft olive color too- it’s perfect for fall.
This black lace up dress is another new favorite of mine. I practically live in t-shirt dresses on the weekends and I love how this is still super comfy but the cutout neckline makes it a little dressier. This minidress is the perfect length to wear on its own or over pants as it gets colder.
I really like the lace up detail on this dress and the elastic on the sleeves make them so easy to push up or wear at full length. My only problem is that I can’t wear my statement necklaces with this since it will cover the fun neckline so I have to resort to statement earrings instead. :(
I’ve been having a lot of fun with the neckline on this dress. I like wearing it with strappy bralettes or bright colored tanks underneath- it’s fun to play up the cut outs at the neckline. I’m so in love with these two dresses so far- I’m pretty sure more lace up pieces are headed my way in the near future.
