Miss Mix & Match: Katrina X Dress

June 05 2013, written by

Welcome back for another edition of Miss Mix & Match! This week we’re all about embracing summer trends for our wardrobe choices, and we’re absolutely in love with our Katrina X Dress! This exclusively manufactured piece is light, floaty and best of all comes in 4 amazing colours.

The Katrina X dress in Blue, Black, Pink & Emerald

We modeled it around the idea of a slip-on shift dress for the summer, simple in it’s concept, easy to wear, plain enough to match it with just about anything but essentially still sexy and feminine at the same time. And let us toot our own horn by saying, yes it is all of the above. We even gave it an intricate lattice back to give it some glam. How to wear it, you ask? We seek fashion inspiration from only the hottest celebrities ever!

We love how both Julia Roberts and SJP (Miss Sex In The City herself!) pair a feminine shift dress with loose fitting boyfriend blazers for official appearances, making an outfit that is quite cocktail party-ish super work appropriate. Leighton Meester works her cotton shift dress in a whole different way, rocking her outfit for a summery day in the city. She cinches in her waist with a simple rope weave belt, killer sunglasses and a simple sling bag for all her essentials. Jennifer Aniston is also one who knows the power of a shift dress, choosing to wear it simply with a gorgeous smile and neutral heeled sandals that make the petite actress’s legs look a million miles long.

Here are our takes on how to spin our Katrina X Dress three ways!

Taking cue from Miss Blair Waldorf, we were inspired by her chic city look! For a prettier beach get up that’s not just the boring shorts+tank combo, throw this dress right over your bikini for some beach club action. The chiffon fabric will dry out super quick as well, leaving you cool and comfy. Even if you are heading straight to the city from the beach, this look won’t have you looking out of place. The key is to get some strappy sandals and ditch the Havaianas. Two summer essentials in one easy dress!

The Katrina X Dress isn’t just a casual dress though. It’s versatile enough to be dressed up in a jiffy. While the fabric is light and breathable, the dress is fully lined. Throw on a boyfriend blazer like Julia Roberts or SJP and put on some sensible shoes like a simple pair of ballet flats, and it’s a great look for work. Not as stuffy as a suit but definitely not inappropriate like wearing bandage skirts to work, and at the same time classy, feminine yet strong. Work that girl power, plus look extra gorgeous doing it!!

What we really love about shift dresses is that they are so versatile. From work, instead of rushing home to change for a fun night out on the town, simply shrug off the blazer, change the flats for some platform pumps, and grab a statement clutch. Voila, entirely new outfit in 60 seconds! Of course we personally encourage a spritz of perfume and brushing your hair for some volume too! The sexy lattice back on the Katrina X dress means that it’ll definitely add some va-va-voom, and who doesn’t love them some sexyback?! The Katrina X dress is definitely high on the list of easy to wear, sexy, versatile and manageable pieces. If there’s ONE new dress that you must add to your wardrobe of staples, this is definitely it.

Until next time,
