Daily Obsesh - Motel 'Gemma' Dress

Detailed-simplicity sounds like an oxymoron in fashion, but that's the best way to describe this multi-functioning dress.

Motel's Gemma dress doesn't want for details. It has buttons on the shoulders and down the back, contrast trim along the edges, an open V-back, and a cut-out waist. Yet all these elements combine into a dress that is actually quite simple and screaming for accessories.

Wear it with a canvas tote and sneakers for a frolic in the park or a day of sailing. Then, slip on a pair of nude peep-toe pumps to give the appearance of super long legs under the short hemline. A mixed-metal, multi-chain necklace will look superb against the red. Add a tiny purse, and you're all set for a semi-casual dinner.

Come fall, the Gemma dress will also work with black tights, ankle boots, and a schoolboy blazer. It's not everyday that we find a dress that can take you from morning into night, summer into fall, but when we do, we have to jump right on it.

Where To Buy - ASOS

Price - $43.10

Who - GlamNiki was the first to add the Motel Gemma Cut Out Waist Contrast Trim Dress to the Hive.
