Marc by Marc Jacobs Jayden Sheer-Underlay Suspender-Strap Dress

I’ve always likedĀ Marc by Marc Jacobs but recently I’ve been even more into his collection than usual. A good example is the Jayden Sheer-Underlay Suspender-Strap Dress I recently bought. At first, I wasn’t sure that I liked the style. The sheer part of the top was a bit bold for my taste. But after a few days, I took another look and decided I’d take a chance. One of my friends echoed what I was thinking — the dress had to be a perfect fit in order for it to look nice. Otherwise, the dress could end up looking very awkward.

Anyway, when the sheer dress arrived, I was a bit hesitant to try it on. I was worried that, because the dress is backless, I wouldn’t be able to wear a bra with it. That’s always a hit-or-miss proposition. But when I tried the dress on, I was pleased with the look and how it fit me.

I think there are two likely scenarios for wearing this dress. First, I can see myself wearing the dress to work, with a sweater or other light wrap or cover. Second, I can see myself wearing this dress to a semi-casual event like an after-work Happy Hour.

Anyway, I’m glad I took a chance on the Marc by Marc Jacobs Jayden Sheer-Underlay Suspender-Strap Dress . It’s a tiny bit daring for my relatively conservative tastes, but in this case the style works. The moral is, don’t be afraid to take a style chance every now and then.
