How To Wear & Style Lilly For Any Occasion

Despite what the weather in Boston would suggest, summer is just around the corner. It’s been a long, hard past two months of spring and I’m looking forward to the sunshine, rooftops and all around elevated moods offered by summer. But more than that, I love being able to wear the Lilly dresses that I hunt for bi-annually.

There was a time when I thought I wouldn’t be caught in a Lilly Pulitzer dress, but oh how times have changed. I look forward to the After Party sales more than Christmas, and almost as much as the Fourth of July. They’re quite literally the most wonderful times of the year. And as someone that lives in the Northeast, summer is when I have to fit my entire collection in (…that’s what she said).

So it goes without saying, that every summer, I’m looking for any and every excuse to wear my dresses that only see the light of day two months out of the year.

So here are three different, basic ways to style Lilly Pulitzer for any and every occasion.

Casual Weekend

Weekender Lilly

Denim jackets are one of the easiest ways to dress down any outfit and look like you’re not trying too hard. Or at least less hard. And what better way to say “I’m down to earth but I eat a lot of seafood and things that are impossible to pronounce” than a straw pom pom tote?

Night Out

Lilly after dark

 

I don’t care what anyone says; Lilly CAN be worn to the bars. To be fair, it’s a dangerous game, and one you definitely shouldn’t be playing if you plan on blacking out. But throw some booties and a choker on that bih and you’re good to go.

In the Office

Workwear Lilly

Some would argue that neon floral prints aren’t appropriate for the workplace. Never work for those people. What is this, North Korea?! As long as it’s not one of the shorter hems, I don’t see you can’t Resort 365 even at your desk.

    I LOVE how you styled these outfits, especially that one with the beautiful blue blazer and the bowed pumps, gorgeous!! Listen we are reevaluating what workplace style should look like, should it be basic blue and black suits?? NO! Let’s tap into who we are and let our personality shine bright! Thanks for the inspo babe.

    I love Lilly Pulitzer!! I generally wear a lot of black, grey and navy but I’ve decided to start embracing colour and this guide is a great way to help with that!

    I’ve got to be honest, I’m not a big fan of Lilly. BUT these dresses are all super cute and perfect for summer!

  • I work hard because I have a dream of stacking hundreds on each blade of a ceiling fan above my bed (that will be mostly ornamental because I’ll have central air) and making it rain

  • It would be nice if 60° in nova/dc actually meant one thing instead of anywhere from 40° to 80° so I could pack these boots away until the fall once and for all
  • Yesterday while watching the updates roll in on Notre Dame, I couldn’t help but feel discouraged as I read tweet after tweet from people wanting to believe and see the worst in the world. It had to be arson. It had to be terrorism. It had to represent the end of civilization as we know it. But then I remembered that the internet isn’t real life, and even if human nature leaves all of us exposed to and malleable by hate and fear, most people are good. And I don’t know if the glory of a masterpiece that was constructed over the course of 2 centuries can ever be repeated, but I know that beautiful things are born from tragedy. Something iconic and special has been lost, but I like to believe something iconic and special will come of it. I usually only feel this when I watch les mis, but vive la France.
