Here at Emma Wallace we’re all about quality over quantity. We believe that if you invest well and buy hero pieces, you can style them for every occasion – making your wardrobe work harder for you. After all, shopping with intention and avoiding waste is always on trend!
This week, we’re taking some time out to show you how you can wear our stunning Chris Dress in five different ways. With its high draped neckline, fluted skirt and tie belt, this is one perfect piece that can take you anywhere you need to go.
With its butterfly inspired print, the Chris Dress will help you pack a punch in the boardroom, but we’d layer it up to make this piece command attention. Wear it over the Asha Top with its classic collar to add a level of formality that will work for a more corporate environment. Style it with an oversized tote bag and heeled black court shoes to turn the corridor of your office into your own catwalk. Slick your hair into a sleek low bun (with a centre parting of course), keep your jewellery simple and throw on a pair of black framed specs to give you that CEO appeal.
Date Night Divine
When date night hits, we know you’ll want to bring some serious sex appeal to the Chris Dress. We’d keep it simple and wear the dress solo to show a hint of skin that’s just the right blend of romance and seduction. Opt for a chic clutch bag and barely there black stilettos to add some impact that still keeps the focus on the dress. Wear your hair down in loose waves and choose a smokey eye to dial up the drama. Finish with our Astrid & Miyu Rope Chain Bracelet for a subtle touch.
We love that the Chris Dress can be dialled up or down depending on the situation. If you’re spending your Saturday running errands before grabbing a coffee, then keep it casual. Wear it with chunky white sneakers and throw over our Chiyo Cardigan to fend off any early morning chill. The complimentary shades on our Chiyo Cardi help to make the print on our Chris Dress pop, whilst the relaxed texture helps to keep it feeling laid back. Tie your hair into a messy high ponytail and keep your make up minimal. Add a cross body bag and you’re ready to run.
Heading for a spicy margarita with your besties? Then it’s all about bringing some cool creds to the Chris Dress. We’d wear it with chunky platforms in a bold and bright shade, alongside adding on our oversized Lopez Blazer for a chic take. Style your hair in a slicked back low pony and add a killer lip to make the whole look pop. We’d finish with an oversized hoop – our Astrid & Miyu Crossing Lines Hoops are the perfect touch. All you need is a rooftop bar; some sundown beats and you’re ready to dance the night away.
The Alar Print on the Chris Dress makes us dream of adventure – a chance to fly away to somewhere beautiful just like the butterfly that inspired this daring design. With this in mind, we’d be quick to pack this piece for our next holiday! Whether it’s Mykonos or Bali, the Chris Dress is perfect for getaways by the beach. Wear it solo but choose laid back accessories to keep your cool. We’d opt for a pair of sliders, a raffia oversized bag and some signature shades to keep that wanderlust feel. Opt for cute details to bring the heat (we’d pick an anklet) and keep your hair in beachy waves. Add some sunscreen, grab your passport and you’re ready to board that flight.
