#AEOSTYLE Challenge: Babydoll Dresses

Our Soft Tiered Babydoll Dress is a closet must for spring.  It’s super soft, effortless and trendy — and with the endless ways to style this dress, available in two solid colors and two trend-right prints, you’ll be wearing this dress at least once a week!

To showcase the versatility of the Soft Tiered Babydoll Dress, we asked three bloggers to style the dress in their own way: Christine from The View from 5 ft. 2, Jess from The Golden Girl and Blair from The Fox and She.

Meet Christine:
I’m Christine, the creator of The View From 5 ft. 2, a personal style and fashion blog that provides style tips and inspiration with an additional petite perspective. I believe in taking chances when it comes to fashion. I enjoy making things work for smaller proportions and opening peoples’ eyes to what they can do with their own style. I’m a young, adventurous and as Beyonce would say, an “Independent Woman” chasing my dreams and figuring it out as I go. I love adventures, bold prints, calligraphy and a really good laugh.

Pair your babydoll dress with a silky, loose shirt for cooler spring days.

What inspired Christine’s look:
There’s nothing quite like a light and airy summer dress! If you get a little creative with your styling, you can wear them all year long. It’s barely spring here in Chicago, so I styled the tiered baby doll dress with light layers. It has the perfect loose-fitting cut that allows you to layer over or under for a unique look no matter what the season. I chose a floral button down shirt that I wore loosely over the dress so that it looked like a casual jacket and mossy green sandals in a similar shade as the dress. I also paired it with a peachy-nude clutch and floppy fedora hat to tie in other shades from the blouse. I completed the look with a chunky gold watch and bracelets and tortoise sunglasses. You can use your silky button down shirts to quickly make strappy dresses spring-ready!

Meet Jess:
A Chicago transplant by way of the West Coast, I started The Golden Girl to document my love of style, food and the occasional crafty project. I now reside in the Gold Coast of the windy city (how fitting!) and I’m also Fashion Editor for The Everygirl.

Jess layered her babydoll dress with a long trench for a “Date Night” look.

What inspired Jess’s look:
This babydoll dress is the perfect transitional piece for spring! It looks incredible with a few added layers (completely necessary for unpredictable spring weather). On the other hand, it’s flirty, minimalist and downright adorable all on it’s own and perfect for festival season as the temperatures start to rise! Because the word “warm” is a loose term these days in Chicago, I threw on a long trench with some killer pastel pink heels to complete the perfect “Date Night” ensemble. This dress will be one I wear again and again for months to come.

I’m the fashion and lifestyle blogger behind The Fox & She. When I’m not blogging, I’m running my blog design business, Leap Blog Design, painting abstract art and making travel a priority.

Pair your babydoll dress with a bandeau for a layered, bohemian look.

What inspired Blair’s look:
Since I’m on the tall side (5’8″), I let the straps out and wore a lace bandeau top underneath to give it a fun, layered and bohemian look. I paired it with flat booties to give this girly frock some edge and a blazer for a tailored finish. I love mixing girly pieces with more tailored pieces to create a brand new look that’s all my own.
