How to Style: Mara Hoffman Printed Column Dress

I purchased this fun (and funky) Mara Hoffman column dress back in January during a big winter sale at the Les Nouvelles showroom (for MUCH less than what The Outnet is listing it for). When I saw it hanging on the rack with its plunging neckline, I didn't think it would flatter my body type (hello, Hollywood Tape!). But after trying it on, I knew I would not be leaving the showroom without it!

To style the dress I decided to keep within the tribal theme -- a pair of fringe earrings, suede booties and a crossbody (for hands free ease) rounds out the look perfectly. I've been waiting for just the right occasion to whip it out, and what better occasion is there than Thursday night's Solange concert here in Atlanta, right?

Rest assured I'll be getting my stylish two step on.

  1. My first thought was it's gonna swallow you up. I'd love to see pics once you're heading out to hear your GirlCrush perform.

    1. Oh, this dress is QUITE form fitting. Will have to bust out the spanx to keep it all together.

      I'll be sure to post pictures!!
