That Zara Dress : How to style it different ways

This was the summer of "the dress." You probably saw it all over your social media feeds. The white maxi dress with black polka dots from Zara. The loose cut is flattering on almost every body type, and the neutral colours in a monochromatic pattern makes it work easily with any accessories and occasion. Spoiler alert! It now comes in black with white polka dots! Black for fall, how groundbreaking.

This IT dress even has it's own instagram page, where you can see how women all over the world style it. Check it out here: instagram page.

So after seeing this dress take over my social media feeds this past summer, I decided to order it and see how I felt. You are probably wondering, "is Raj really the kind of person that gets influenced by what she sees online and on social media?" Yes, yes I am.

So after purchasing the dress,  and humming and hawing if I'd actually wear it (and then realizing I was past the return deadline), I decided to figure out how I could get my bang for the buck and how many ways I can style it. By using whatever I already owned (boring), I figured out how to adapt this simple dress for different occasions (or how I'd wear it on vacation - a girl can dream, can't she?)

Perfect for Spring in Wine Country: or spring anywhere really. Throw on a denim jacket and your favourite slides and this very cute but impractical straw bag which basically fits a straw.

Hat: Roots 
 Denim Jacket: Gap 
Sandals: Zara

When the temperatures drop:  I wanted to call this one "Apres Ski" but who am I kidding? I don't ski, and my apres look would be my pjs! But a cozy sweater thrown over top and knee high boots will keep you warm and cozy wherever.

Evening Out: Cinch the waist with a belt and add some structure with a blazer, and this dress works for the office or a dinner out in the evening.
