A dress can be a great starting point for an outfit.
Even though we all love hating on the Kardashian/Jenners, we have to admit their style has had a massive impact on pop culture and I'm sure most of our closets. When I picked up this turtleneck dress from H&M a few weeks ago (on sale of course) I imagined it with Kim K vibes. Black ankle boots, a slicked back pony, and maybe even a fur. Flash forward to this outfit, and I've taken it a whole other direction (maybe directly opposite direction). Much more Emily Oberg/Real Housewives than sexy reality star.
Case in point, what I'm saying is theres a million ways to pair a simple, form fitting dress. So even though you might start sweating in a wool blend long sleeve dress, you will look undoubtedly good while passing out from heat stroke.
