Whenever I am struggling to pick out an outfit, I pretty much always reach for my faux fur vest. It is a simple layer that adds so much visual interest to an outfit. (Also check out this recent post where I styled a black faux fur vest!) Although this dress is cute without the extra layer, the fur vest makes the outfit put more put together. Another simple detail that can really dress up an otherwise casual outfit, is boot socks. I picked up this pair during Black Friday and I have worn them 3 times already since they arrived in my mail box! (I recently posted about them on my Instagram as well.) The boot socks are currently on sale for only $6 and also come in gray! I highly recommend them if you have been looking for some boot socks of your own. Sometimes I think simple, no fuss, outfits are the best, so I love that just a couple easy tweaks can really make such a huge difference in how the final look comes together. Also, if you like this dress it is currently on sale and is 30% off! I am wearing a size XS for reference and it is extremely comfortable.

  61. A very chic Winter look. A long-sleeve dress with a vest or a fur vest like yours is an outfit formula for me for Autumn or Winter with wedge booties or tall boots. The boot socks were a great addition. Once again I am loving the jewelry, here.

  62. I LOVE Piko dresses,but don't have a purple one! That would be an excellent addition to my closet!
