Modcloth Coach Trip Dress

Modcloth recently reached out to see how i would style one of their classic dresses (The Coach Trip dress in Noir).
I almost felt a bit overwhelmed with the possibilities as it is such a great blank canvas that can be re mixed a ton of ways. My initial thought was to go with black and red, a classic and a definite staple go-to combo for me. But then i started messing around with some great autumnal colours and topped it all off with a touch of teal , because quite frankly im totally taken by teal,haha. It just adds such a great unexpected quirk to any outfit.
So here we have it!
How i would wear The Coach Trip Dress in Noir…Autumnal with a hit of Teal

    Oh, Rachel, the cafe I'm in has rubbish internet and so I can't see your photo, but I have to say teal is a lovely colour. My best friend has an obsession too- and an apparant monopoly on all the teal/turquoise underwear you could possibly hope to find on the British highstreet! 😉 I'll check out your pic later when I get home 🙂

      Have now witnessed the beauty! By the way Rachel, could you tell me, please, is there a programme that helps you make sleek montages like that? I really struggle displaying images in the way I want them. Thanks 🙂
