Fire Eyelet Trim Shirtdress Nordstrom

I noticed this dress tomato red dress while window shopping at Nordstrom. I love everything about it (sans the hat) including the $44 price tag. Now, granted it’s in the junior section, but come everyone knows…we all browse there too.

So how does one pull off this dress without looking like Mandy Moore circa 2001? Pair it with high-quality ‘adult’ accessories. My rule of thumb is that if you are going to wear a bold piece that is ahem, cheap…then you had better dress it up with the good stuff.

Here are a few suggestions for piecing together a smashing outfit around said dress;

Fogal Mara Patte Tights Intermix

Michael Kors Preston Suede Sandal Neiman Marcus

Hanii Y Bubble Sleeve Coat Barneys

Dior Detective Velvet Wrist Clutch
