1 Summer Dress, 3 Ways

October 28, 2014

Packing for a holiday is not easy, especially for us girls who want to bring our entire wardrobe along with us!

A girl needs options you know!

But these days I’ve started packing smarter, and choosing pieces that can be mixed and matched to create a casual day, fun and a more ‘evening’ look with one key item.

This means less packing and more outfit choices.

I picked up this cute Lynne Tropical Dress from Old Khaki that’s super light and easy to dress up or down. You can wear it entirely on its own, or add a few accessories to change the look.

Here are some ways I styled it to create three very different looks, perfect for a summer holiday.

1. Out and About

This look works pretty much for every kind of holiday occasion. Just add a leather belt, some simple sandals and a cross body bag and away you go!


Crossbody Bag: Woolworths (old), Leather Plaited Belt: The Space (old), Sandals from Greece

2. Sightseeing

For something a little more fun and a little bit sporty, I paired up my tropical dress with a simple striped tee (which I knotted at the side), a pair of sparkly sneakers and a cute hat. Then, I added a long hamsa hand necklace to finish the look.

Perfect little look for exploring and sight seeing!

This tee is also viscose (like the dress) so it keeps you cool and since it covers your shoulders, you won’t get too sunburnt out and about on your holiday explorations.


Becka Stripe Viscose T-Shirt: Old Khaki, Black Sparkle Sneakers: Superga, Gunner Straw Trilby Hat: Old Khaki, Hamsa Necklace: Lucky Brand.

3. Dinner and Cocktails

You don’t need to pack a whole “going out” outfit as this dress works perfect for something a little more dressy as well.

Enhance your cinched waist with a brown belt, add a white blazer (roll up the sleeves to keep it summery), then just add some bright summer heels and cute clutch.


Heels: Madison (old), Belt: Bershka (old), White Blazer: Zara, Clutch: Woolies (old)

 These are just some of the looks you can create with the Lynne Tropical Dress. I love it because of the gorgeous mix of colours that go with just about anything!
