The Paper Crown Dahab Dress

When I’m designing my Paper Crown collections, I always like to determine a “hero color” for that season. To me, a hero color is basically the key color I’m inspired by; an up-and-coming tone that I predict will be on-trend for the season ahead. My hero color for this spring is a perfect chambray blue… Not quite a dark denim blue, but not a sky blue either. It’s flattering on everyone, and looks great styled with almost every other color palette (but especially black and straw tones). My Paper Crown Spring 2017 Collection has several pieces in this chambray blue color, but my favorite of them all has to be the Dahab Dress. It’s truly a piece I could wear every weekend, which brings me to today’s post…

I was inspired by how versatile this dress is and how many ways it can be styled, that I decided to put my stylist hat on for a day and show you all how you can wear it three ways (thanks to my lovely friend Carmen for modeling!). From the office to mimosa brunches to fancy date nights, here are three completely different but equally chic ways to wear the Paper Crown Dahab Dress

Outfit 1: Weekend Brunch

Heading out on a Saturday morning for mimosas with the girls? Simply add a straw hat, lace-up flats, and a small black bucket bag for the perfect ladylike spring look.

Outfit 2: To the Office

A summer sundress that might seem too casual for the workplace can be immediately transformed into an office-appropriate look simply by adding the right accessories. My Paper Crown Cabezas Coat fits the bill when it comes to creating an office look with the Dahab Dress, and I love how the red stripes make my favorite shade of chambray pop. Just add comfortable flats, and don’t forget your favorite pair of sunnies.

Outfit 3: Date Night

Date night in the Dahab Dress is a no-brainer. I styled it for a night out on the town with a special someone by adding a pearl necklace (which actually changes the entire silhouette of the dress!), a pair of blush strappy sandals, and a blush crossbody bag to match.
