The Perfect Outfit: Get Fancy But Not Fussy With These Tea-Time Pieces

perfect-outfit-straw-hat
Looking fancy and looking fussy usually go hand-in-hand, but there is a way to look tea-time-ready in just five pieces. Jessica from Lookbook shows us how, by smartly accessorizing a stand-out dress with a few key pieces. Start it off with a floaty summer dress with plenty of sass-appeal (we like this Duskin version that can be cinched with a belt for a more body-con look), and pair them with classic accessories in coordinating colors. Love the outfit? Of course you do! The best part is that with these perma-chic products, this outfit will never go out of style, so wear it with pride for many summers to come! Check out how to cop the outfit for yourself with some products pulled straight from our Refinery29 shops.
