Style Lisa in 3 Ways

How to wear the Lisa 2.0 red floral dress 3 different ways for the Holidays.

Made from fabric that moves with you, the Lisa silhouette boasts an extremely comfortable fit that looks and feels amazing. You’ll quickly see that this style is perfect for many different events, including career, daytime, evening, cocktail parties and numerous special occasions, both formal and informal. Keep reading to learn how to wear the Holiday dress version of Lisa 2.0 for three different occasions. 

Casual Daytime Outing

The Lisa 2.0 is the perfect dress to have in your winter wardrobe for those days where you just don’t know what to wear. Rather than making a huge mess in your closet, throw on Lisa and pair her with casual booties and a crossbody bag to get those Holiday errands done. You could also add a black denim jacket on top to keep warm and also make the look a little more casual. 

Accessories determine the outfit. 

A dress can look more night-time appropriate on its own but be styled down to best fit a daytime occasion. The Lisa 2.0 is made from moveable, soft fabric that keeps you feeling comfortable all day. It is a good option to wear during the day and can be made daytime ready with the shoe, outerwear, and bag choices. 

Bundled Up for Date Night

Lisa 2.0 turned night out! Like mentioned before, the Lisa dress is made with a stretchy and slinky material that is just as comfortable as it is stylish. Add a cozy shawl on top and some boots to keep warm while wearing Lisa out at night. Also add on some tights to really keep you warm! The elbow sleeves add a little bit of extra coverage, but go full coverage with a sweater, tights, and boots to make the perfect winter look.

The upcoming winter season doesn’t mean you should pack away your dresses!

Dresses can easily be worn during the winter season by bundling up! Have a winter coat ready to go and some knee length or ankle booties. Add on a pair of tights to keep your legs extra warm! If you don’t like the look of the thick nude tights, add thin black tights on top of your thick ones and no one will ever know!
