A bit of background: IТm not a girly girl. The vast majority of my wardrobe is leather and denim, and my friends would have a collective heart attack if I veered into the world of printed dresses and delicate slips. Sick of feeling like IТm missing out on spring fashion, though, and annoyed by this classic case of trends clashing with personal style, I cornered our resident not-so-girly girl, Fashion Director Natalie Cantell, seeking advice for pulling off a spring dress in a way that still feels like me.
Cantell long ago figured out how to wear a dress without sacrificing her penchant for menswear-influenced pieces. When designers started dressing her for fashion week, she tells me, she quickly had to figure out how to style things in a way that toned them down a bit and made them feel more her. I needed to know what she knows: УHow do I wear a dress without feeling like IТm playing dress-up?Ф I asked.
УI get it!Ф she says. УFor me, dresses are like lipstick. I love it in theory, but it doesnТt feel like itТs meant for me.Ф But Cantell promises that wearing a dress is not as hard as IТm making it out to be: УThereТs plenty you can do to make a dress feel like it belongs on you, especially with a few key pieces on hand,Ф she advises.
To prove it, Cantell took three new-season dress styles from Topshop and turned them into hero looks for not-so-girly girls everywhere. Layer away!
