If one of your New Year’s style resolutions was to incorporate more color into your wardrobe, then I’ve got the perfect piece for you. Today’s My Goodwill Find is a bold blue drop waist dress made by Loft. This piece is far from your average shift style dress, dear readers. It’s got potential for year-round, casual and professional wear. That’s the kind of thing I’m into – versatility!
The Loft puts out a ton of great colors so it’s always exciting to find their pieces in Goodwill stores. A size 10, this dress comes featuring a sleeveless style with a drop waist. This isn’t just any ordinary drop waist, though. It is adorn with one inch pleats all along the hemline. They lay perfectly flat, giving the dress just a bit of feminine, flirty flair. Although Loft does run a ton of sales (holler if you think their emails are excessively annoying!), this dress would’ve cost you no less than $40.00 brand new and discounted. That means if you’re taking this one home, you’ll be getting a true steal.
I love this piece for its style potential, dear readers. You can rock this color and style year-round with a little layering and accessorizing. For the cooler months, I’d pair this with a oxford style button down shirt layered underneath. Classic white will be a perfect pair but you could also pull off a polka dot or stripe if the colors worked with the blue since this piece is a solid. The blue would look great with a black tight and bootie for winter, too. I like the idea of giving some depth by pairing it with a printed style – think argyle or lace. A statement necklace has the ability to take this piece from day to night any time of the year, too. You can play with some colored baubles since you’ve got a great solid, brightness in the blue. For warmer weather, this piece will be fab without an under layer. A printed cardi can be thrown over for work, then tucked away for a lovely warm weather happy hour!
