Mexicali Every Day: Styling the Dahlia Overdye Dress

Made to Fair Trade standards, the dahlia overdye hippie dress is a brilliant patchwork of unique floral, striped, stonewashed, and swirling fabrics. With a v-neck top that can be tied around the neck like a halter or hooked into two loops on the back to be worn as a tank, this dress is versatile as well as flattering.

This sassy little strappy dress is the best thing ever for spinning and swaying at a groovy festival, but there is more to it than meets the eye! With a bit of layering creativity and awesome accessorizing, this fun frock can flit from sun dress to sophisticated Winter style in a snap!

We challenged Carly to create three looks that would be good for going out to a fancy dinner while retaining her bohemian style. It being January in Maine, she paired the dahlia dress with warm tights and boots to be sure she stays cozy. A classic black cardigan and elegant recycled silk scarf bring a polished panache to this outfit that perfectly strikes the balance between comfortable and cosmopolitan!

In Carly’s second outfit, the dahlia dress is layered over a mod turquoise turtleneck top, with a slim leather belt to emphasize the smallest part of her waist and add a luxurious feel.

Carly’s third look features the same sort of layering, with the dress over a long-sleeve top for warmth–and a thin leather belt to accentuate her waist–but in this case she has chosen a deep v-neck tee to show off one of our bold beaded fashion necklaces, for a bit of boho glamour!

How would YOU style the dahlia overdye dress? We would love to hear your ideas!
