Cynthia Rowley Polished Cotton Ruffle Dress

A dress so nice I styled it twice! Seriously, though, I’m in love with this easy breezy Cynthia Rowley dress.

In fact, I bought a black and white gingham version of this dress last spring and practically lived in it! (Hmmm… oddly, I see it never made it here on the website, so you’ll have to trust me on this one.) But anyway, when I saw this vibrant hue in the spring collection, I had to snap it up right away.

Dress It Up or Dress It Down

Not only is this dress fabulously fun and flirty, it is also versatile beyond reason! I love it when you can change up a look completely by simply changing up your accessories.

First, I dressed this up with shiny dressy accessories… Dior So Real sunglasses, statement Louboutin heels, Elena Ghisellini bag, and more. But then, with a few easy changes, I took this to the ultimate daytime cool look with Golden Goose sneakers, Ray Ban sunglasses, and a J.Crew crossbody bag.

Question For You 

So, now I have a question for you: which look is your favorite? I’d love to know! Let us know in the comments.

A note for those of you who are neutral fans: this dress also comes in black. And just think of all the ways you could style that neutral hue! Also, there is a top version of this fun shape. The top comes in a lovely coral shade and black, too.

Finally, we are big fans of Cynthia Rowley in general – as evidenced here, here, and here in past posts. And her recently shown Fall 2017 collection is no exception. Be sure to browse the collection. Look 1 and look 3 are favorites of mine.
