Chucks + dress: how to style, part 2

chucks + dress

A dress + chucks. Those two things normally don’t go together. You probably think chucks go with jeans and dresses go with heels. However as I almost exclusively wear dresses, I have found a way to make the impossible possible. Ladies, you can pair your dresses with a good pair of Chuck Taylors. And you can do it with class and style!

Also just one order of housekeeping: I’m guest blogging today! After you finish reading all about how to dress up your chucks, you’ll want to head over to Elegance and Mommyhood where I’m guest-blogging about the classic little white dress. Ada is on vacation this week so I’m filling in. Ada and I both love dresses, so she’s become an instant blogger pal of mine!

Anyway, back to dresses and chucks. On Sunday, we took a look at my friend Amber’s orange dress with light blue chucks (How to dress up your chucks part 1). All I simply told her was that I wanted to do a piece or two on dresses and chucks. This is what I absolutely love about personal style. She styled the idea way differently than I did. I love that!

My dress + chucks

With my look, I opted for more of a solid-color dress and a colorful necklace. My classic red chucks needed a bit of a contrast color.
