Rosanna Aranaz of Little Miss Dressup kept her ensemble basic with an all-black lace dress, a bag from H&M, and Jeffrey Campbell shoes. She kept it simple by not wearing any accessories to keep it light and appropriate for daytime wear.
Experimenting with this kind of dress for a different look will work if the waist is gartertized. Hide the top part of the dress under the skirt and wear it just as a skirt. You can pair it with a printed loose buttondown top or a bright colored tank top. Hide unwanted folds and secure the skirt in place with a waist-cinching belt. Finish off the look with platforms or flats.
