Rue How-To: Transforming A Beach Dress for Landlubbers

RUE LA LA STYLIST MAUREEN TRANSFORMS THIS BEACHY TUNIC INTO A VERSATILE MULTI-TASKER

Normally, beach shifts are relegated to weekends on the sand, waiting in line at the boardwalk snack bar, or sipping mai tais seaside. However, with the expert styling of Rue La La stylist Maureen, this Three Dots vintage voile boatneck tunic has traded in its sea legs (at least in part) to become one of our favorite looks for out on the town as well.

1. We believe that the night is still young. Wear the tunic out, with the sash tied in a loose knot at the side, partner with dark rinse jeggings, a long gold necklace with matching bangles, and your most leggy black heels.

2. We believe that the words “beach bum” are not an excuse for summer slacking. Wear this tunic as a dress, pair with a berry-hued straw bag, flat leather sandals, a lavender floppy sunhat, and of course, shades.

3. We believe that for a better view (and loftier sense of style), heels can do the trick for outdoor music festivals. Team with a teal pocketed skirt, tall metallic sandals, and wear this tunic tucked.

Now it’s your turn to play stylist – how would you style this floral number?

    If I was wearing this, you could wear #2 by itself. By adding a thick belt around the waist to give it a different feel with simple gold or silver flats on the feet. You could also add a long chained gold necklace to spice up #2’s look.
