This ruched dress is a wardrobe staple for me. The ruching not only adds a fun detail, but it camouflages your midsection and makes it super flattering on every body type. I also love the tulip hem. It comes in multiple colors and also comes in a long-sleeve version. For me, the sleeveless was a more versatile option since I can add layers in the fall and winter months. Today I wanted to show you four easy ways to style this ruched dress with pieces you probably already have in your closet that transition from summer to fall. 


Ruched Dress | Casual Summer Outfit

Even though the temps are high, it's always freezing indoors with air conditioning. I created a sporty outfit by wrapping a light cardigan around my waist and then adding a baseball hat and sneaker. This outfit is ideal for running errands, going to the farmer's market or a summer festival.

Adding a flowy kimono takes this outfit up a notch and adds a breezy vibe. I added some gold accessories and lace-up sandals to complete the look. This outfit is perfect for a shower, girls night or date night.

Camo goes with virtually everything and adds a fun element. If you don't have a camo jacket, any utility jacket will do. I accessorized with neutral jewelry and my favorite Van's slides.

Colder months and layers go hand in hand, and this ruched dress is a perfect base for creating a layered look. Adding a cardigan and booties is a simple way to transition an outfit from summer to fall. This outfit would work well for a casual office environment too!
