If you want to feel cute and confident, then comfort is not just a nicety; it’s a necessity.


Cute or Comfy?

Sometimes fashion can trick us into thinking we have only one option or the other: feeling cute or feeling comfy. Maybe that skirt with the trending details restricts your movement too much. Or maybe that flattering ruffle collar irritates your neck. We’ve been there before. But here at Sweet Salt, we decided to do something about it, because we know if we want to feel cute and confident, then comfort is not just a nicety; it’s a necessity. We believe that it’s possible to create cute but comfy outfits!

Lila Doe: Cute AND Comfy

Cute and comfy were the inspiration behind our Lila Doe modern house dresses. Every woman deserves a piece of clothing that is versatile and comfortable, and with these aspects in mind, we truly believe that these can be dressed up or down to work for any occasion. These five dresses were designed to move easily between styles; dress them up effortlessly for a nice evening, and dress them down to maximize comfort. With soft fabric and universal cuts, these dresses are meant to flatter any shape for any occasion. Take a look at how they can be styled up or down effortlessly.

It’s All in the Accessories

1. Scarves and Bags

Elevate your look with a scarf in your hair or a bag at your side. We love how beautiful our Raglan Midi-Sleeve Dress looks with these simple accessories. It’s easy to throw your hair up a bun and tie a handkerchief up in your hair to elevate your look, or drape a fashion scarf around your neck for some simple layers.

When it comes to purses and bags, this is an easy place where you can accessorize an outfit to help dress it up a bit. We all have our go-to bag that gets us through the day-to-day to-do lists. Consider switching it out for something a bit more unique- something in a fun, fresh color or even a different shape is simple yet effective in dressing up an outfit.

2. Outer Layers

If a scarf isn’t your style, try adding an extra layer with a cardigan or jacket. A solid color cardigan or classic denim jacket are surefire ways to elevate your ensemble. If it’s a little warm out to wear a sweater, wrap it around your waist for a trendy look, or consider a lightweight kimono to achieve that cute, layered ensemble. You might also consider grabbing a t-shirt and throwing it on over your dress, tying it up in a knot to the side. This is an easy trick that elevates any outfit and is flattering on any body type, and is perfect if you find yourself wondering how to dress up a t-shirt. Our Flared Maxi Dress looks stunning with a pop of color.

3. Shoes and Jewelry

An easy way to elevate your look is with a pair of heels or statement shoes. A bold-colored heel or pair of cute flats make it easy to achieve that dressed up look with a modern house dress, and will quickly become one of your favorite cute, comfortable outfits. Coordinate them with a necklace or a pair of earrings for a polished style.

When it comes to jewelry, we’ve found that incorporating a few pieces into your outfits is a simple way to take your ensemble to the next level. Whether you’re looking for something small and dainty or a piece that will really make a statement, jewelry is always a good way to dress up your outfit and help you achieve the look you have in mind.

Dressing Down

There’s nothing better than coming home and being able to finally kick off your shoes, let down your hair, and take some time to relax at the end of the day. If you’re looking for ways to dress down a dress, you’ll find that our modern house dresses are the easiest transition pieces out there. When you’re ready to relax, the key to dressing down is minimal or no accessories. Wear items that add to your comfort, like socks or a soft hat. Comfy time is you time, so only use accessories that add to your comfort. At the end of the day, what feels great to you is what’s most important, so consider what helps you to feel most at ease and make it happen.
