By Golly, By Timo

Let’s face it – there’s a lot of fashion rules. And I know we talk a lot here about how to push the envelope when those rules are holding you back from being your true authentic self. And this post is no different! There may not be a hashtag yet for the statement sock (or maybe there is? #statementsock where are ya?!) but we are certainly here for this subtle trend. It may seem like totally against the rules to pair sparkly socks with such a classic dress, but we say, “go for it!” This By Timo dress is a floral, ruffle, western, romance all rolled into one beautiful piece. Sometimes a piece that is so specific almost lends itself for even more rule-bending! Next time you’re out shopping, find something super literal and see if there are ways to bring it closer to your personal style. A Gingham dress with lace trim? Add a moto jacket and high top sneakers. A floor-length satin slip dress? Add a patterned long sleeve underneath or a neckerchief. In short, push that evenlope, friends! It’s fashion – nothing is off limits.

The floral dress is such a classic, folks. It’s honestly hard to think of an occasion where a floral dress of some sort would be inappropriate. If you’re operating in the world under the impression that florals are always feminine and always formal, I can totally see why but there’s a way out of this restrictive narrative. Consider fabric, accessories, and color pallet when choosing your floral. While these particular looks are absolutely on the formal side: consider how they would read to you if they were paired with sneakers and a distressed denim jacket. Instantly more casual. If this pattern is still a bit bold or loud for you, consider finding more of a micro-floral pattern. No matter how you slice it, a floral dress is definitely a wardrobe staple and we are tickled to honor this piece today!

Think that all your light-toned florals are banished to the back of the closet now that Fall is here? Think again! The key to rocking your pastel patterns is to find them on fabrics that will keep you warm, are able to be layered, or that have some textural interest. All of these things you will find in this By Timo mini dress. The high neck and long sleeves make this dress completely Autumn appropriate without drowning you out in a sea of black and neutral-tones (not that we don’t LOVE neutrals, because whoah, we love ’em!) If bright colors are your thing – let that colorful flag fly all year ’round! These velvet Mary Janes from Chelsea Crew tie this look all together with the jewel-like velvet material – and how good would these shoes look over some black tights?!
