The One Dress You NEED In Your Closet!

The dress you NEED in your closet this spring!


Let me paint a scary picture for you….

It’s Saturday morning, you’re moving slow, sipping your coffee, deciding where to meet your friends for brunch and all of a sudden you remember that you have to be at your cousin’s bridal shower in 2 hours!  Like, what!?  Tell me I’m not the only one who’s experienced this!!  Fortunately I have an elegant, yet neutral dress that works for ANY occasion and is totally acceptable to wear again and again!

In the south, seersucker is always in season!  Men wear seersucker suits to multiple events and you can definitely wear that seersucker sundress over and over without worrying about people talking about how you’re “wearing the same dress AGAIN!?”  I’ve pulled out my Lauren James Seersucker Emerson dress more times than I can count and still get just as many compliments on it as I did the first time I wore it! Why? Because it’s a totally classic silhouette in a totally classic fabric!  Not one of those super trendy, intricate designs in the “color of the season”.  Nope, this one is as classic as it can be with a boatneck neckline, full skirt, deep V in the back, and a sash that ties into a bow in the back.  It’s business in the front and party in the back in the BEST possible way!  Oh, and it also has pockets!  So you can just grab your ID, lip gloss and phone and get to that nearly-forgotten event instead of worrying about switching out your purse!

Now, I don’t like playing favorites, but my color of choice for those “OMG I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!” moments is the royal blue striped seersucker!  First and foremost, it’s as classic as it gets when it comes to seersucker! (and I do know a thing or two about seersucker) But another reason I love this particular color is because it’s so easy to find matching shorts, jackets, or bowties for your husband/boyfriend/kids!  I’ve worn the Emerson dress to weddings, showers, business meetings, and dinners with friends and I always feel put together, pretty, and classy in this sweet southern design!

Lauren James has a TON of great dresses right now so if the Emerson isn’t right for you, I know you’ll find something you just LOVE!  (And make sure to tag @laurenjames and #lifeisbetterinLJ on social media if you post a picture of yourself in a Lauren James dress!!)

XO, Lauren

    I love this post because I love the idea of having this timeless item in my wardrobe. I’ve gotten to a point where I’m not really looking to follow trends and keep my wardrobe “up to date.” I’m happy finding that less can be more and that one perfect seersucker dress may be all I need!

    I’m with Taylor! I definitley appreciate the “capsule wardrobe” that the French and millennials are making popular! I love classic and timeless pieces!
