Cropped Moto Jacket: TJ Maxx, LBD, Belt: The Possibilities Shop,
Skirt: Handmade Vintage (via Downtown Threads), Tights: Gifted
Moccasins: Minnetonka (via The Kittery Trading Post)
This outfit put me a bit outside my comfort zone. Normally I wouldn’t have thought to use a LBD as a top because of it’s length, but Carolyn assured me it would work and I really liked how it turned out. I doubt many people would realize it was a dress.
The cropped cut of the jacket and the thin belt draw the eye in at my waist adding shape to my silhouette. Usually I wouldn’t have paired this look with moccasins but Carolyn insisted that they gave the outfit the Burlingtonian vibe it was missing and I went with it. I ended up kind of liking the unexpected vibe the moccasin gave the outfit.
I think that I’m going to start layer more dresses under skirts and vise versa. Using them as layering pieces gives you so many more remixing options. I love how this dress looked as a top (an LBT). I can definitely see myself wearing this outfit again but I would probably change up the shoes, swapping the mocs out for a pair of bright pumps or booties.
Do you layer skirts and dresses a lot? What do you think of the mocs with this outfit? What shoes would you stly this outfit with?
