I got this dress a while ago but as the weather at home didn’t cooperate, I took it with me on holiday to Thailand.

Even if it’s very sheer, I would wear a simple cotton black dress underneath so it would show or just play it out like a blouse .

I loved the embroidered detail, bell sleeves and the fact that it’s so comfortable and easy to match for both an elegant and more casual look.

When I was younger, I used to hate bell sleeves because I thought they are very uncomfortable and they would hinder me from eating, drinking right or using my hands in general. But now, I just consider them a very elegant detail that would make any simple dress or top to stand out without being too much. This is my second bell sleeved dress and I am not sure if it will be the last one for this year.

This outfit is very simple because I wanted to make the dress stand out. Because of the deep V and embroidered fabric details no other accessories were needed so I just picked my new Gwen Stefani heels I got last month and that was it. The first time I saw those sandals, I thought they were screaming my name. The mesh detail is simply beautiful and I loved the overall simple design. Simple strapped sandals are my thing if you haven’t yet observed that.

Of course normally I would also wear a small bag but in this case I haven’t packed any small clutches with me.

If I were to pick, I think my red and black mini shoulder bag, or my DVF gold detailed clutch would complete the look very well.

If I would need to carry more things along, I would probably go for my Rebecca Minkoff Love shoulder bag or my Cathias Edeline black and gold bag.

In my opinion, for wearing such a simple yet intricate design, everything else needs to be clean and simple in order not to overcrowd the look.

As a blouse, I would wear it with some leather skinny pants and maybe a high neck knitted blouse to keep me warm if it’s very cold outside.

So what do you think? Would you wear it as a dress or as a blouse?
