Three Ways To Rock a Smock (…Dress)

One of the hottest trends for fall of 2018 is the smock dress. If you’re nervous about trying out this dress, we completely understand. This silhouette, though often forgotten, is considered universally flattering. The reason is that the style is loose and not form fitting, but at the same time is gathered in the middle, creating a nice waistline.

If you’re looking to add a smock dress to your closet, but you’re not sure how to style it…we’ve got you covered. We’ve put together three distinct looks that will have you excited and thrilled to rock the smock!

If you gravitate towards bolder colors and edgier styles, then this smock dress look is for you! The striped dress is bright, fun and the perfect contrast to the badass leather jacket. Because of the intensity of the dress and jacket, you’ll want to keep the other accessories subtle and delicate, like the lightweight layered necklaces and the tan purse and shoes.

Pretty Preppy

The last look we prepared for you focuses on a more preppy and polished approach to the trend. Smock dresses, having a looser fit, can often feel at odds with the structured lines and fitted silhouettes that are staples in most classic and professional ensembles. Done correctly, smock dresses are a quick and comfortable outfit that is perfect for a day at the office or even a fun family brunch.
