This persimmon organic cotton dress was the first piece that I designed for My Spring/Summer 2015 Capsule Wardrobe. This dress has been one of the best pops of color in my usual neutral wardrobe. You can see another way that I have styled this dress here as well as my complete design process here.
It’s amazing (at least to me) how different this dress looks by layering it with a white cotton shirt. It can be a bit more challenging to layer during the summer months, yet light natural fabrics seem to work best I think. Los Angeles doesn’t get oppressively hot until September anyway.
I paired this look with two of my five favorite statement pieces in my wardrobe. With a bit of creativity, you can put together completely different looks within a carefully thought out capsule wardrobe. I seem to be getting a lot of wear out of this white cotton shirt too. You can see it styled differently here and here as well.
