One of the best thing about closet staples is that they can be worn in so many different ways. A simple white dress, when paired with the right set of shoes and accessories, can be dressed up for a day at the office or dressed down for a casual trip around town.

When you're shopping for this particular wardrobe must-have, look for a simple, flattering silhouette that will easily pair with a variety of accessories and styles.

DRESS IT UP

Dress: Karlee Belted Tank Dress, Cake Boutique | Bracelet: Textured Stack Bracelet, The Limited | Clutch: Halogen Continental Clutch in Coral Lizard, Nordstrom | Pumps: Michael Kors Adelaide Pump, Nordstrom | Necklace: Scarabee Pendant, Anthropologie

Style it with a pair of neutral pumps, and you'll have the option to accessorize in any color. Here, yellow gold is repeated in the bracelet, necklace and buckle on the pumps, giving the outfit an overall sophistication. A belt and clutch in coral give a subtle pop of color and tie everything together without being overly matchy.

This look is good for business casual occasions when it's OK to go sleeveless. If sleeves are a must in your dress code, you can easily throw on a lightweight cardigan and be good to go.

DRESS IT DOWN

Dress: Karlee Belted Tank Dress, Cake Boutique | Hat: Crocheted Sonesta Hat, Anthropologie | Clutch: Columbia Oversized Bankers Clutch, Cake Boutique | Sandals: Sam Edelman Gigi in Almond, Apt. 202 | Necklace: Antler in the Woods + Bead for Trade, Collarbone

Say you're looking to take a stroll through the farmer's market this weekend. Ditch the heels for flats and throw on a fun wide-brimmed hat to keep the rays off your face. This look has plenty of fun texture and it's a hair on the bohemian side, which gives off a relaxed yet still put together vibe.
