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?!

Folks, we are BACK! And it is quite possibly our favorite time of year: Fall! Okay, maybe our favorite time is holiday. Or maybe Springtime. Okay, we can’t decide. But we are smack dab in the middle of Fall transition and we are LOVING it. We are starting to shake out our sweaters from the backs of our closets and they feel like the warm, familiar hug of a good friend you haven’t seen in awhile. It’s glorious. But let’s face it, 60 degree mornings turn into 85 degree afternoons and that makes wearing cable knits and wool sweaters out of the question. So, for now, don’t pack away your shirt dresses just yet! Just be sure to layer up and you’ll be able to change your look according to the weather. Florals are certainly not just a spring/summertime staple, they can be worn well into the wintery season. Consider a darker floral or this beautiful mustard shade. Add your favorite light duster or denim jacket and you’re prepared for whatever the weather may bring!

The floral shift dress is (or definitely should be!) a staple in every gals’ wardrobe. Its flirty and girly while still being adaptable to everyone’s personal style and flair. They can be dressed up with heels, or down with a denim jacket and sneakers. Its no secret the millions of wardrobe variations you can create with a floral dress and a little creativity. Feeling tired of your classic combos? Try different textures in the same color family. We love these velvet belt that can be tied in many different ways to suit the occasion. Adding some statement shoes, with some unexpected texture like faux fur or metal hardware, adds interest and changes up the entire vibe without my effort. Accessorizing is key for putting a new spin on your most beloved go-to pieces.
