If you haven’t had a chance to meet our bestselling Ivy Midi Convertible Dress it’s about time you get acquainted. The Henkaa Ivy Midi Convertible Dress is one of our staff-favourite dresses because it can be easily dressed up or down, is easy to pack, and looks incredible on all shapes and sizes.
Follow along as I (Madeleine) show you three ways I LOVE wearing my Mauve Taupe Ivy Midi for summer!
Out and About
For this look, I have wrapped my Ivy Midi in the Sana skirt style. Simply step into the dress and bring it up to your waist, wrap the strands around your body and tie a knot. To create a wrap style skirt pull the fabric out on the strings so that it’s not bunched around your waist, then wrap the straps and fabric around your waist, this will create a fake wrap skirt look - super on-trend right now!
To finish the look I wore a simple white tube-top and added a vintage oversized denim jacket. Accessories are key, I chose statement earrings, white sneakers, a vintage straw clutch, and a bandana tied around my ponytail! This look is perfect for running errands, catching up with friends over a coffee, or sight-seeing!
Concert or Festival Ready
Picking out outfits for special events like concerts or festivals is always so much fun, I strive to put something together that is creative but also comfortable - in comes the Ivy Midi! The Ivy is often thought of as a dress or skirt but it also has the ability to be turned into a top too! Simply pick whatever style you like and gently tuck the excess into your jeans, skirt, or shorts! The Henkaa Mauve Taupe Ivy Midi Convertible Dress in a modified Holly style is perfect for a festival or concert.
I finished the look by wearing a unique pair of secondhand jean capris and matching plaid shirt tied at the waist. A wide-brim hat, trustworthy pair of mules, and a small purse complete the look!
A Night Out
As mentioned above, the Ivy Midi has an ability to easily transformed from a casual everyday dress to a perfect night out dress by simply re-styling it! For this simple but striking night look, I wore my Ivy Midi in the Kara style. This style is great because you can easily wear a bra with it!
I added my favourite pair of strappy black heels to elevate the look and finished the look with a black purse and statement earrings. This look could easily be dressed down with sneakers and a plaid shirt tied around the waist.
