Staud Wells Midi Dress Styled Three Ways

Longtime readers will know I really have come to prioritize building a wardrobe of classic, timeless pieces that can be styled a variety of ways. I invest in my wardrobe to be able to have pieces that make me feel wonderful when I put them on and I want to be able to wear the pieces I purchase for years to come – not just for a season. 

One Midi Dress, Three Ways

One of my personal favorite silhouettes year round is the midi dress. And for the last two years I have loved styling the Staud Wells Dress. When I saw it on Saks Fifth Avenue in Navy this summer, I instantly scooped it up. I already own it in white and black and both get so much wear. I knew the Navy would be able to be styled several ways and most importantly – it would work well into Fall which I was excited about. I wear an 8 in this dress as the bodice is rather fitted so to accommodate my chest I sized up and love the fit on the 8. 

Saks has long been a go-to retailer for me for investment pieces. I always look forward to seeing what they are carrying from my favorite designers and some of my favorite purchases in recent years – such as my Manolo Blahnik Maysale Heels – have come from the store. 

Saks carries so many of my favorite brands like La Ligne, Veronica Beard, Reformation, Doen, Saint Laurent; among others and whenever I am looking for special pieces or shopping for trips or investment items, it is one of the first places I shop.

What I love about a midi dress is the ladylike silhouette and one like the Staud Wells Dress serves as a great blank canvas for styling a multitude of ways – making it a worthwhile investment. The Staud Wells Dress has such a fun full skirt which makes it pretty special and striking looking. But I found so many beautiful midi dress styles at Saks Fifth Avenue right now so be sure to browse my edit below!

Look One

I love navy paired with cognac so I added some favorite cognac accessories to this summer-time ready outfit. I had been eyeing this Longchamp Bag for at least a year and know it is going to get so much wear year round.

Look Two

Navy and black has become a favorite color combination for me in recent years. I have always loved a monochromatic look so I added a navy sweater atop my shoulders for this outfit and then accessories with a black bag and black sandals. I think this color combo is an easy way to elevate any look.

Look Three

Anyone else looking forward to Fall fashion already? This Veronica Beard Blazer  has been on my wish list for years and now that it is finally in my life…I am in love. The quality of her jackets is unmatched (I have several other blazers by the brand that are all equally as special and always make me feel so put together) and I love the rich navy color with the silver buttons. Adding it atop the dress makes this dress work well into cooler temperatures and I know I will wear it so much with favorite jeans and trousers this coming Fall.
