We've adored this Upper Deck Ruffle Dress ever since we saw the white and baby blue stripes, its flounce and flair and soft silk-like fabric. And today, we are showing you four unique ways to wear this dress (or really any off-the-shoulder looks) that can take you from a fun date night to running errands to the office to a weekend festival. Comment below with your favorite look!
 

Night Out

Layer a couple contrasting necklaces over the ruffled neckline for a fun and trendy take on this preppy striped dress

Looking to wear this dress for an everyday look? Simply knot the front, throw on a pair of shorts or jeans and top with a casual and colorful necklace.

 

Office Attire

For the office, wear the Upper Deck Ruffle Dress on your shoulders, add a classic blazer, delicate necklace and nude pumps for a business casual look. 

Country Chic

Try country chic in our off-shoulder-dress with a cognac belt knotted at the waist and matching booties. Add some shoulder grazing earrings and an arm stack of bracelets for a funky festival look.

Spotlight: City Lights Tassel Dress Posted on 07 Jul 10:54 , 2 comments

Today, we are highlighting one special dress from our summer inventory. The City Lights Tassel dress is fun, flirty and the perfect piece for any summer soiree.

Its jet black silk taffeta-like material is lightweight with a slight stretch to it's fabric for a breathable wear. The cold shoulder, one of this year's hottest trends, loosely hangs off the arm for incredible comfort and style. And the black and white tassels that dangle off the sleeves and hemline add a fun-loving element to a little black dress. Wear it with sandals for an afternoon festival or colored heels for a night out with friends.  All you have do is add some earrings, and you're set!

 







Shown with the City Lights Tassel dress are the Ivory Pom Tassel earrings.

Four Different Ways to Wear Chokers Posted on 16 Jun 07:59 , 0 comments

We'll be the first to admit, when chokers made their return to fashion, we were very hesitant to venture into the same territory (some of us) wore over 20 years ago! But then, we discovered the many possibilities and varieties that are offered today. Colors, styles and textures are much more chic and sophisticated than their 90s counterparts. And while you still may be a little tentative, we hope these four examples will change your mind!


Contrasting Color or Print

 

Pairing one of our round tassel necklaces with a bright colored top or patterned dress is a modern and more mature way to pull off the choker look. It looks effortless and casual by not drawing too much attention to the necklace itself.

Shown here are our Round and Round Tassel Necklace in hot pink, Swing into Summer Tank in paradise blue and the Oopsa Daisy Swing Dress.

 

Monochromatic

 

Pairing a choker with the same colored top is the easiest way to sport the high-neck trend. Try a multi-wrap look to add a little more substance to the overall look.



Take the Guess Work Out

 

Still not sure how to pull off the choker trend? Take the guess work out and try one of our beaded choker necklaces. The draping and layering is already built in for you! Just add a coordinating top or dress and you're all set!



Be Creative 

Have fun with the choker trend and try tying a long wrap necklace into a bow or knotting it together. When you pair this with a classic silhouette, such as a tank dress or simple tee, you can go more bold with the choker.  

Shown here is the Round and Round Rainbow Tassel Necklace in ivory and Piko Tank Dress in ocean blue. 

Let us know how you've worn this season's choker trend! Comment below.

Red Firecracker


Our Red Hot Cold Shoulder Dress in this bold paprika color features lightweight, textured fabric with 3/4 length ruffled sleeves and elastic neckline. We've paired it with our Bead Bold Dangle Earrings in turquoise for a unique contrasting look.

Same Looks for Less - Dare to Compare! Posted on 18 May 14:43 , 0 comments

If you saw this blog post a couple weeks back, you know that one of the main reasons KatyLoo was started is because we didn't enjoy paying those high-end prices for boutique items. We pride ourselves on being able to offer the same quality you'd find at a boutique, but at a lower, more affordable price. We want to show you what truly makes KatyLoo the perfect destination to shop for your fashion needs. So today, we've put together several items we currently have in stock and online that you may find at other boutiques for sometimes 50% less!

Our Looks for Less

Our Fuchsia Flowers Embroidered Top is available for $34 on our site versus $39.99 at similar boutiques.

Our Hot Summer Night Embroidered Shift Dress by THML is available for $70 compared to $84.99 - an almost 18% difference!

Our brand new Flamenco Embroidered Clutch priced at $29 versus $34 at a leading online retailer is a great way to stay trendy and on budget! 

 

These Drop the Ball Earrings have been hugely popular this year. At only $12 compared to $34 or $42 at other boutiques, you can wear the same look at a fraction of the cost! 

 

We've been obsessed with these Bead Bold Dangle earrings in turquoise ever since they came in stock. Priced at only $14 versus $30 at a local boutique, you can save over 50% with KatyLoo!
