Converse With A Dress

Today’s post is my take on wearing Converse with a dress.

I was out doing a lot of running around yesterday getting some jobs done and decided to pair my black wrap dress with some Converse. I bought the black wrap dress last summer from Asos and have had tons of wear out of it since then. It’s a great wardrobe staple. It was so windy yesterday that I topped my outfit off with my pink Zara blazer which is also another wardrobe staple of mine this season.

I think that wearing the Converse with the dress still looks a little smarter than sporty sneakers but still adds a really relaxed and comfy laid back feel to the look.

    The dress is so beautiful and I think wearing dress with converse is a smart idea. It’s very close to Scandinavian style.

    Gemma,
    Personally, I love wearing converse with a dress or sneakers, and your look is so cute with that unique dress hem! I think it’s cute and practical. Overall, it seems like sneakers with dresses is sort of a new thing, right?

    I love wearing sneakers with dresses and skirts. I think it really makes the look seem more laid back, and I certainly feel more comfortable. I really love the pink blazer you chose. Such a great shade for the warmer months! xx
