Layering is a fabulous way of styling a colour block dress because you can create different looks and seasonal options. It is also a great way to highlight and play with the different colours that feature in the dress. This shift dress features an olive-khaki green tone and black, which are two of the most versatile colours to wear.
For a striking workwear outfit, the khaki sleeveless jacket, with military style details, is worn over the dress to highlight the gorgeous green tones. Because the dress has flattering features such as the black waist detail, the sleeveless jacket works well left open. To compliment the black details of the dress, the ankle-cuff heels add an elegant finish. Finally, the accessories such as the monogram bag and gold statement necklace, nicely freshen up the whole look.
This is a simple and stylish option for layering a colour block dress. But for more versatility, you can layer it with a sleeveless black blazer for a more tailored look. Alternatively, a leather jacket is cool for a more edgy finish, that would work well in the day, as well as cocktails in the evening.
