I love the look of high-low hemlines on dresses and tops, but I've found it quite difficult to style this dress. Maybe it's the color or the long-sleeves, but it can be easy to toe the line of looking chic or looking witchy. Inspired by a look on Pinterest featuring a black dress with a denim vest (and I've been trying to hunt down a good one but to no avail. I've considered cutting the sleeves off this jacket, but I think I might regret it), I added my denim jacket and a few other fun accessories for what I hope was a more casual-comfy-chic look. This dress just might live to see more days in my closet.
