Five Ways to Style an Amazon Dress

The Details

Do y’all remember this dress from Amazon? Chances are you probably do, because I wear it ALL the time. It’s comfortable, it’s flattering {pregnant or not!}, and you can layer different looks with it to mix the style up. There’s ruching on the side, so if you aren’t pregnant, it gives this elongated effect. And if you are rocking a 5-month bump like I am, this dress has amazing stretch.

Two weeks ago a girl on Instagram asked if I could share a few more ways to style it. I’m all about wearing an item for seasons on end, so this post felt like a necessity. 😉

First up, let’s discuss the dress. This is an Amazon find originally shared in this post. It does sell out quite often due to popularity, but it comes in a ton of colors and is frequently restocked. I have the Army Green in a size “small.” You have the option to order this dress in grey, indigo, pink, short sleeve, etc.

Dress | Similar Booties | Sweater | Similar Hat, Similar Hat

Let’s first talk about styling it in cooler months. Cropped sweaters are everywhere! Years ago, it was all about the oversized sweater. Now, I can’t go into a boutique without finding dozens of sweaters that crop right at the button on your jeans. While I normally love them, they aren’t my cup of tea while pregnant. If you aren’t sure of how to style a cropped sweater, or you are like me and not sure how to wear them now, throw one on over this dress. The dress will act as a skirt and the juxtaposition of fitted vs. loose sweater will be a nice effect.

Similar Hat | Scarf | Similar Jacket | Similar Boots

What about a dressier look? The key to dressing this dress up is added textures. A leather jacket, a silky scarf, or suede boots can add a bit of dimension to the layers while keeping you warm. Shop your closet for mixed metal accessories and textures. As long as you stay in a neutral palette, you can add until you feel perfectly styled. I love styling this look specifically because I have had the scarf for 7 or 8 years and the jacket for 4 years. It’s proof that when you keep good neutrals, you can always incorporate them into new buys.

Plaid | Similar Booties

If you have plenty of plaid or chambray in your closet, throw one of those tops on over your dress. I tied this up over my bump, but you can leave yours open or tie at the waist. Add in a ponytail and a flat pair of booties for a comfortable outfit. This is the look that is probably the easiest to shop in your closet because it doesn’t even have to be a button-up blouse. If you were to purchase the short-sleeve version of this dress, you could just tie up a white tee or even a graphic tee. This graphic tee is actually a cute look for less to one I shared back in the fall. I’d tie something like this up, too!

Top | Look for Less

Similar Jacket {have this one linked blogged it here and love!}, Look for Less | Hat | Sneakers

Need a way to style the dress ultra-casual if you are running out the door in 5 minutes? Throw on a baseball cap, a denim jacket, and sneakers. Because of the length of this dress, you can chase your kids at the park and not feel overdone. My pearl denim jacket above is sold out, but y’all always love this one I have and it’s in stock! Size down in the jacket linked.

Similar Headband | Headband |  Flip Flops

If you are styling this look in the summer, toss on your sandals, stack some bracelets, and throw on a printed headband. The headband trend is here to stay {thank goodness, I have too many!} so you can let that be your pop of print with this look.

I hope this gives you some ideas in shopping your closet with this dress so you can feel confident styling it throughout the year! If you’d like to see these looks up-closet, I’ll have an IGTV video live on my Instagram with these looks later this morning.
