How to Wear This Ruffled Cynthia Rowley Dress a Third Way

A dress so nice I styled it twice three times! Yes, I love this Cynthia Rowley ruffled dress that much. As you saw in this post, I dressed it up with heels, as well as down with sneakers. It truly can go either way.

Even though the color of the dress is bold, it’s still something you can wear time and time again. Simply by swapping out the shoes (whether heels, sandals, or sneakers), changing up your bag, and switching your jewelry, it can be a completely new look.

This time, I decided to wear a monochromatic look with my favorite pink heels and a cross body bag. I topped the look off with this adorable, floral sunhat. This hat is actually a collaboration between Hat Attack and my friend Emily Men! Fun, right? I absolutely adore it, and I have a feeling I’ll be wearing it quite often this coming summer.

What do you think?

Now, I’d love to hear which is your favorite of the three looks. Let me know in the comments below!

    Hi Carrie,
