Last week I discussed my stance on wearing last year’s / past year’s clothes this season. My conditions were that the garment must fit my aesthetic and / or must feel like it is relevant this season. This dress is a perfect example of the latter.
J.Crew essentially recycled one of its black and white tweed fabrics from last summer’s dual tweed black and white dress for this year’s navy and white tweed dress. I love either version, especially when one finds herself in a summertime destination that offers a cooler climate, allowing for a heavier fabric.
I love outfits that allow the wearer to pile on copious accessories. In this case, the freshwater pearl necklace with a black ribbon tie (can be worn as a single strand or doubled up), RayBan Wayfarers, and orange-red Nars lip crayon. The dress shape reminds me of a tennis dress so rather than wear a headband and look country club costume-y, I went for a headscarf and tied it around my head, Rambo-style.
