It’s the 21st century and the era of button-down dresses. With its dominance over the fashion industry, the styles and designs of this particular type of dress have remained popular for many years. However, as button-up dresses become more popular, a number of accessories have become popular in addition to the dress itself.
From work to play to evening parties, this classic silhouette is worn everywhere. When a good one comes along, it’s a fantastic flexible addition to your wardrobe. I recently had the opportunity to put on a new Sotela dress and decided to share a few basic tips about how to style a button-down dress.
The use of accessories is always a good way to make a particular style look modern and current. However, many stylists are now playing with colours and patterns to make an outfit even more stylistically interesting.
They know how to mix and match colours and mix fabrics and textures to create many different looks. In fact, it’s not uncommon for an up and coming star of the fashion world to be photographed wearing unusual and exciting accessories.

Another easy go-to style for a comfortable and creative look is to wear the button-down as a tunic pairing it with denim or pants. This can also be worn tied with the belt or left alone for a boxier silhouette.
The key to dressing well is to have a mix of accessories so that your outfit looks harmonious. If you have too many accessories, you will draw attention to yourself and not do anything to accentuate the beauty of the dress. Remember, it is the dress that is the focal point and not the accessories.
However, if you are wearing multiple accessories, make sure they enhance the dress rather than taking away from it. Lastly, always make sure you look good in your dress!
