How to Create 2 Looks with 1 Mesh Dress

Creating two different looks with the exact same pieces, featuring a mesh dress by Saku.

Through a fellow blogger friend, I met Korean designer Lissa Koo several months ago and learned about her label called Saku. Although her studio is based in New York, Lissa sources her inspiration from various cities and different cultures. You can often find classic styles with a bold twist from her collections.

In this post, I'm featuring a pink mesh dress designed by her in two different outfits. And I'm doing that only with one additional piece: a navy blue slip dress, which I've previously styled on the blog!

In order to show off Saku's piece, I wore the camisole dress underneath it and cinched the whole look with a pink obi belt. The belt helps to accentuate my waistline and elongate my bottom half. I didn't want the belt to steal the spotlight, so I went with one in a similar color tone. Then I completed the look with a straw hat and my current go-to handbag by British brand Danse Lente.

And for the second look, I simply swapped the two dresses around, wearing them inside out! I love that the lace neckline details on the silk dress are now visible, adding another material to the mix. And because it is a more form-fitting dress, the outfit works without a belt. I accessorized the look with stacked bracelets from Kendra Scott and my pink box bag from Pop & Suki (you can use HAPPILYEVERSTYLE15 to get 15% off one purchase).
