How do you wear the Tosca Dress?

We've had so much fun the past couple of days doing a photoshoot! We're like kids in a candy store. Playing dress up: putting on garments, mixing & matching, layering and adding accessories. What better way to spend an afternoon.


Linda, Kathy & Erin each have their own unique style. We decided put together a few looks to introduce our latest pattern, the Tosca Dress. Three different people, wearing the same pattern in completely different ways.


I like wearing the Tosca Dress with a little shrug or jacket (you know, the arm thing). Tights and boots are great, but I prefer the ease of shorter tights with some gladiator sandals. My MixIt Tank made in a knit, a size smaller than I normally wear, is the best under layer for me.

Don't you love that Nine Live Vest in the Diamond Sweater Knit?


I like to dress with layers.  Scarves and/or turtlenecks seem to add more balance to my upper body.   Wide belts can cinch in a straight bodice,  tights and boots can add length to the leg.

I love dresses, so this pattern is perfect for me. I don't mind sleeveless in summer but layering with jackets or cardigans is always best in chilly weather. 


We even have the Vera Wang Purple Jacquard so you can create your own dress.

Tip: To wear the Tosca sleeveless, wear a camisole underneath to conceal the oversized armhole. Want a fun look? Try a contrasting color or patterned camisole for fun surprise!

So, how do you wear the Tosca Dress? We would love to see pictures!
