How to look perfectly put together in a 5 minute outfit may seem like an oxymoron to some (ha, ha, I crack myself up) but you only need a few essentials to pull it off.

All you need is 5 pieces…

  1. Start with a simple dress in a woven fabric, like this crepe dress – knit fabrics tend to look a bit too casual and we are going for a smart and sleek.
  2. Adding a scarf, rather than going for the obvious jewelry, is a fresh new way to style a simple dress.
  3. Pair your outfit with a bag that has some texture and interest, like this fringed saddle bag, to elevate the look without having to think too much about accessorizing.
  4. A great pair of sandals in a low block heel really streamline an outfit while keeping you comfortable and ready to walk around all day if need be!
  5. Last but definitely not least, top it off with a denim jacket for a perfect casual weekend/brunch look.

STYLE TIP: When accessorizing the dress, use complementary hues to add some depth to your outfit.  I used earthy tones in different shades to put this outfit together.  Keeping the accessories neutral in varying shades keeps the look from being too matchy-matchy.

Although this dress is super simple, layering textures, complementary colors and interesting accessories took it to the next level!
