Wear Now, Wear Later - ASOS Ruffle Dress

I may be the biggest fan of versatile clothing – like ever.  There’s nothing better than finding a piece that can be worn a million times in a million different ways, especially when that piece is as affordable as this darling ruffle dress from ASOS.  Crazy enough, this is my first time purchasing from the brand, but I definitely couldn’t pass up their 70% off clearance sale!  I snagged this ruffled, cold-shoulder mini for only $14.50 – talk about a steal!  I seriously swoon over navy blue during the autumn and winter months, so I know this dress will be put to good use!

I styled this dress two ways, to show how easy it is to wear for multiple seasons.  It was a little warmer than 83° when I shot this outfit, and without the jacket, I was quite comfortable.  The material is a lightweight rayon that rests effortlessly against the skin.  It doesn’t cling in the wrong places, which is something very important to me.  I loved that while the style is cold-shoulder, the “straps” are still appropriately thick, and the collar was a little higher on the neck.  I don’t prefer wearing plunging necklines when the temperatures start dropping.

Wear this outfit now with a pair of strappy sandals and a cute belt to add more definition to the waist!  I chose this faux Gucci belt – that’s right, it’s fake, and definitely worth the $15!  I totally fooled my Insta fam when I posted a story saying I “treated myself” to this belt, then got a good amount of laughter in my DMs when they noticed my next story said the belt was super affordable!  I showed my boyfriend side-by-side comparisons of the original belt by Gucci and this dupe I found on Amazon, and neither of us could see the difference.  It’s incredibly high quality, and fits perfectly around my hips.  I did DIY one more hole in it to make it comfortably snug around my waist for wearing with dresses!

Wear this outfit in a month or so when the temps drop, just by adding some quirky tights, sock booties, and a jacket!  I love taking solid dresses and making them stand out with my accessories (you can read more about that here).  My heart-print stockings are super eye-catching, and these velvet booties are a staple in my fall and winter shoedrobe!

    Haha, well, dear Stephanie, you had me completely fooled with that belt for sure and I wouldn’t have thought it to be fake if you hadn’t told us. You didn’t have me fooled with the ruffle dress however as it’s simply perfect on you and I’m glad you found your way into ASOS heaven as I spend looots and lots of hours in there and my wallet just keeps getting emptier, haha.
