Soft dressing is exactly what it sounds like – easy, soft, chic pieces that make it possible to look stylish yet feel relaxed. Plus it’s one of our newest (and favorite!) trends this season. Soft dressing includes everything from pants and bralettes to dresses, with a strong focus on feminine details like cinching, bows and ruffles.
Get casual chic in a feminine jumpsuit
Watch the video above to see how Lauren, our Manager of Styling, dresses aspiring singer and Project Live Your Life winner Irina, in this season’s must-have soft dressing piece, the Ruffled Jumpsuit. This effortless outfit can be easily dressed up or down. Lauren keeps Irina’s look casual with studded booties and a simple necklace. Need to transition from day to night? Swap the booties for your fave wedges, change out the simple necklace to one that makes a statement and grab a clutch.
