The fashion world today is growing by leaps and bounds. Though there are a few who could still care less, the others can barely get over it even for a few hours! With the availability of accessories and apparel online, everyone across the world is now able to get their hands on what they like through these mediums. So when everyone has a similar thing how do you make sure to stand out? Innovative styling is the only answer. Karl Lagerfeld was quoted saying "Trendy is the last stage before Tacky", which I completely agree with. A lot of people tend to cross this thin line without even realizing. So it's very important to not only grow your wardrobe but also train your style senses to avoid the tacky situations.

When you're shopping online, it's very easy to get overwhelmed by the varied choices. That's why it's better to have a motive and then log on to your favourite websites. I know it's inevitable to get sidetracked but if you know what you want it would be harder to sway you. For me, I wanted a simple dress which I could wear to a beach or causal brunch but also fancy it up a bit if I wanted to shoot a blog post with it! The water colour print on this one immediately caught my attention. Initially I was a bit skeptical about the colour riot but I grew to love it! I adore pieces that flow so gracefully & have a scope of dreamy movement. This dress was super affordable just like all their other pieces and there are at least 5 ways that I can think of styling this. 

Now on to the styling. If I were to wear this dress to a beach, I would simply throw on a huge sun hat, the same sunglasses & a straw tote bag! But for this look, I added hints of gold to make it a bit more fancy. To cinch my waist, I added a simple gold belt and then to oomph it up a bit, I used a necklace & layered it along with the belt. Not only did it add some colour but it also attached a surprise factor to the look. I then threw on a layered gold bracelet & these super cool sunglasses! Because of my love for them, the people over at FancyPants named the sunglasses after me. I am absolutely addicted to these & haven't stopped wearing them since I got it! Check out my Instagram if you don't believe me! Lastly to balance the colour frenzy, I took aide from a pair of nude pumps.

What do you guys think of the look? Comment below and tell how you would style this dress & how you make sure to stand out in the crowd without being over the top!
