One in a melon

Ootd is this watermelon 🍉 print sarong dress. I have found a new love for this style; if you want to feel sexy, confident, and bold. 50s style Sarong dresses are the ultimate dress for giving you that feeling.

Staying true to the vintage sarong dresses, the color of this dress is bold and bright. Decorated with watermelon 🍉 patterns.

From Collectif Clothing

I had the ideal watermelon 🍉 purse from Voodoo Vixen to pair with the dress

The wiggle fit gives you maximum va-va-voom, highlighting your curves in all the right places.

I accessories with these cat eyes sunglasses 🕶️ from eBay which gave the outfit the classic vintage feel

How you choose to accessories, this dress can completely change the look. Here I added a black belt that I took from one of my vintage dress which cinches the waist, even more, paired with black mules to compliment. These mules were not that comfortable to walk in if I’m honest, but they looked good on.

Here are the two ways I styled the dress Side by side. Based on the design; this dress does not need a belt to cinch the waist. The sarong style highlights your curves in all the right places. However, adding a belt does change up the look, especially if I added a black straw hat. I might do that the next time wear this dress🙃

How would you style this dress? “belt or no belt that is the question.”
