Color Block Dress Styled Two Ways

How To Style A Color Block Dress

Color block dresses are so popular right now and I was excited to find such a comfortable one to style for you. Made by Premise the soft t-shirt like material surrounds me in comfort and will be worn frequently this summer I know. I'm styling the dress two ways for you today.

First off is a more formal look with heels and a classy purse. The uneven hem adds interest to the classic dressy look.

These open toe pumps are one of the pairs of heels I kept when I did a shoe clean out awhile ago. The brand is Life Stride Velocity with memory foam and they are comfortable for wearing and walking. 

This unique purse is a thrifted find from Goodwill, but it was brand new and never used before. I have received numerous compliments on this purse since I have been carrying it. I love the clutch style with the unique handle and the embedded flowers that remind me of the sixties! 

For a more casual look I added white capris leggings and traded out the heels for my Skecher white wedge sandals. 

You have seen these shoes on the blog before. I said it before and I'll say it again. These shoes are soooo comfortable!

I chose bracelets that would coordinate well with the white/black/mist grey heather colors in the color block dress. These bracelets give a nod to those colors.

And I knew I couldn't go wrong with my Paparazzi wrap bracelet on my other wrist. 

Whether I'm looking for a dressy or a casual look, this color block dress will help me to go through the summer in style!

Like the look?  Feel free to pin my photos.  Also, hope you will leave a comment.  Do you like the color block style of dresses?

I don't know that I've seen a color block dress before, but I now know that I really like them! The dress is beautiful, and I especially like the hem and the way the dress flows. I couldn't help but notice the gorgeous potted flowers in the background of your photos. Your post certainly invokes a sense of the upcoming carefree days of summer!

I like both looks equally well Debbie! The different ways you styled the dress changes up the look completely! I do like color block clothes (dresses/tops), but I don't have any at this point. I love the hemline on this one. It really adds interest. And those gray those!! And what a bonus that they are comfortable! That brand seems to be very good for comfort in dress shoes. Your pictures are always so pretty outside! You live on a lovely lot!

Thank you, Karen. I ended up wearing the outfit with the capris out to do some errands. Very comfy. We live in a wooded area and it is very pretty. Thanks!

I really like this dress and our looks great on you! Great idea to pair it with leggings, too. So feminine yet comfy - didn't get more Cindy than t-shirt material! Where did you find it?

Looking good! Dresses are the best garments! And what a fabulous bag you have.

Debbie Styles Life said...

Thank you, Laura. The dress came from Sam's Club in WV.

This color block dress is quite different from the crowd of color-block dresses. Very chic. Thanks for joining the Top of the World Style linkup party.
