Smocked dresses remain a comfortable and feminine dress option for young girls and women alike. This loose-fitting garment can be worn many ways to be appropriate for nearly any event in one's life. The dress gathers at the bust with smocking through a stretch material that fits snugly. Try wearing one with a large fedora hat to create a high-fashion look. Opt for a dress from American Rag. The casual, yet chic design look great on many body types.
Smocked dresses remain a favorite for a girl. Comfort is key with children and this type of dress allows a girl to run and play without being confined by something tight. Its loose design offers the girl an empire waist that is cut to flow off the body. It also can be used as a skirt or a top by bunching it up. Try one from Epic Threads. Its many convertible maxi dress options allow someone to remove the straps and create a skirt or a tube dress option. Add a pair of sandals and this is the perfect summer outfit.
When dressing up an outfit, always think of what can be worn in terms of jewelry. A long pendant necklace looks with a dress that is form-fitting in the bust. A drop pair of earrings instantly dresses up an outfit. An ankle bracelet is a fun, summer piece of jewelry that creates a sophisticated look in itself.
Perhaps the easiest way to change the tone of an outfit is through a purse. Choose a handbag that complements the style of the dress while not seeming like one is trying too hard. Another fun way to accessorize smocked dresses is with a belt. For a patterned smocked dress, try a solid thick belt around the waist to create some texture.
