This is one of those outfits where the accessories totally make the look. There is a common misconception that you should keep accessories minimal when wearing a printed dress, but I totally disagree! I love the vibrant print on this floral summer dress, but when I received it, the cut was not the most flattering. So I decided to style it with accessories to make the outfit more stylish and interesting. Read on for my tips on how to accessorize a floral dress.LayersofChic How to Accessorize Floral Summer Dress NYC Fashion BloggerLayersofChic How to Accessorize Floral Summer Dress Red Heeled SandalsLayersofChic How to Accessorize Floral Summer Dress Gold Earrings

How to Accessorize a Floral Summer Dress

  • Cinch the waist with a Gold Chain Belt: Since this dress was a bit loose on me, I went with a belt to give the dress a flattering shape. This gold chain belt is perfect for dresses as it instantly elevates any look and adds just the right amount of bling. I love that the gold chain on this belt has some weight to it, the chunkiness makes it super chic and modern.
  • Add a Sophisticated Flair with a Silk Scarf: A silk scarf is such a classic piece and always reminds me of Paris. This horse print one from Cabi has just the right color combination of white, navy and red, making it versatile enough to pair with a floral dress. I tied it in a bowtie style for a feminine and preppy touch.
  • Red Strappy Sandals: When in doubt, go with a pair of red sandals. There is something so inherently sexy about red strappy sandals, and I absolutely love the slight off-red color of these sandals and the chunky straps. I’ve seriously gotten so many compliments wearing these sandals and multiple questions on where I got them. I like how the red picks up on the floral print on the dress, as well as my red lace bralet.

For the rest of my outfit, I chose pieces with gold elements to match the gold belt. I went with my Chloe Drew bag with gold hardware for an elevated touch, as well as gold earrings, a gold watch, and gold bangles. I love how all the accessories in this outfit make the floral summer dress more interesting and creates a unique and dynamic look. LayersofChic How to Accessorize Floral Summer Dress Style BlogLayersofChic How to Accessorize Floral Summer Dress Strappy Red SandalsLayersofChic How to Accessorize Floral Summer Dress NYC Fashion Blogger
