Two in One

I love the idea of having one item of clothing that looks like two…it’s like pretending to have actually planned your outfit when in fact, all you did was zip it up ;)

That’s the case with this dress from Banana Republic. The top is cut to look like you’re wearing a matching crop top (complete with back cut out) but it’s actually just one fit and flare dress. Love, right? I adore its fit so much that I purchased this dress in this fun spring print and in a solid black…because when a dress fits, buy it in every color! At least that’s my motto. 

Dress: Layered crop top dress by Banana Republic (similar here and same style print here)
Bag: Belle du Jour by Yves Saint Laurent
Shoes: Marion strappy sandals by Jimmy Choo

What’s your favorite way to “cheat” style? I also recently heard of something called Skinny Shirt and you better believe I’m going to give that a try! Love that idea…preppy look without bulk.
