Have you ever been shopping and come across a beautiful, ruffled Parisian dress in a cream color with a floral pattern? These dresses are not uncommon, and although many women find them beautiful, some don't buy them because they're not sure how to wear or style them. This is understandable since it is such a niche item. However, there are more ways to wear and style a Parisian floral ruffle dress than you might be imagining. Here are a few recommendations to get you started.
Pair it with a simple, silver necklace.
With such a statement dress, you may be unsure what jewelry you can wear that won't make the outfit look too busy. As popular as large, statement necklaces have become, that is not what you want to wear with this type of dress. You instead want to opt for a simple, silver necklace. A chain with a simple pendant will draw the eye towards the neckline of the dress, but it won't distract from the dress itself. If you wish to wear earrings with the dress, choose similarly simple ones. A pair of diamond studs or simple pearl earrings are a good choice.
Wear it with leggings.
A Parisian floral ruffle dress is a dressier piece of apparel, but if you want to get more use out of it, then you can also wear it with a pair of leggings as more casual attire. The leggings make you look more relaxed, and they definitely feel more relaxing. This is now an outfit you can wear to a house party, the average restaurant, or even work in some cases. Look for a pair of leggings that matches the cream color of the dress for the best results.
Layer it with a long, flowing cardigan.
Many Parisian ruffle dresses have short sleeves, which may make you think the dress is not appropriate for winter. But if you wear the dress with a long, flowing cardigan, it can definitely be cold-weather appropriate. Look for a cardigan that reaches past your bottom. This way, the cardigan will move with the ruffles of the dress and won't take away from the flowing, moving quality of the dress.
If you've found a Parisian vintage cream floral ruffle dress that you love, don't hesitate to buy it. There are several ways you can style such a dress in order to get more out of it. Start with the recommendations above.
