I’m so excited to share this beautiful brown floral midi dress! It’s a great work dress and can be styled a few different ways. Some of the outfits involve simple swaps like a shoe color change or adding a layer.
I picked this dress out for our Christmas photos. We took our photo on the stairs of our new house, and I knew the brown and earthtone shades of the print would compliment the light wood color of our stairs. This midi dress is a shift dress style. On my petite frame, I preferred adding a belt so the volume did not overwhelm my short frame. If you are taller, you may be able to pull of the volume without a belt. The belt also helps create a defined waist no matter your height.
SIX WAYS TO WEAR A BROWN MIDI DRESS
WITH BLACK BELT & BOOTS
I love love love the contrast of the black boots and belt against the fall colors in this dress. Since the black is such a strong contrast, it creates the look of slimmer waist better than the other belt colors. The black contrast also helps add a bit of edge to the look.
WITH LIGHT TAN BOOTS & BELT
Another color choice is to pair this dress with a color in the dress like the light tan of my boots and belt. It adds a lightness to the overall look and really highlights the lighter shades in the print.
WITH BROWN HEELS & BELT
My brown belt and heels are the perfect compliment to the brown shade in this dress. I wore this outfi for our Christmas photo. While the light tan pulled out the lighter shades in the dress, the brown really highlights the brown background of the print.
WITH LONG CARDIGAN & BOOTIES
If you need an outer layer option for this dress, a long cardigan in a complimentary color is a great choice. Choose a cardigan that is either found in the print or compliments it. The earthtones in the print worked well with the olive green in my cardigan. Beige/ivory or rose pink would also work really well with this print.
WITH BLACK LEATHER JACKET & HEELS
To add a little more edge to the dress and really play up the contrast from the first look, a black leather jacket is another outer layer option. If you want a more monochromatic look, a brown jacket would work too.
WITH BLACK BOOTIES
This final look showcases how this dress look by itself with no belt or jacket. With all the volume in the dress, my petite frame definitely needs a heeled shoe. Neutral colored heels would be a great option here. I loved the edginess my black booties added to the dress.
