Elevating Everyday Moments
How to Style and Personalize an RP Dress or Outfit
If you are a new or longtime fan of the RP collections and aesthetics, get to know my fundamentals for matching, accessorizing, and styling our most iconic looks below!
Fundamental #1: An RP Look is Classic and Feminine
I love a demure aesthetic with a touch of glam: full coverage tops that flatter my bodice and waistline, functional outerwear that still feels unique and stylish, and elegant dresses featuring chic and covetable embellishments. I want our customers to feel comfortable, yet classy and elevated for their occasion.
My favorite RP dress style is a lace sheath. I wear with a low ponytail and Louboutin heels for a timeless and elevated vibe.
Fundamental #2: RP Pieces Can Be Dressed Up or Down
I can wear a classic RP sweater with jeans and my favorites tennis shoes, or go chic and sophisticated with a shimmery skirt and designer earrings. I usually don't like to spend tons of money on clothes. Instead, I pair basics with designer accessories—an easy and affordable way to elevate my complete look.
One look, two ways. This RP sweater looks feminine and elegant for all occasions.
Fundamental #3: RP Designs Can Be Worn Season After Season
I love to layer an RP summer dress for fall dressing, or transition a luxe and feminine dress sweater for spring. I never want an RP item to feel dated or fleeting; each item is designed to be styled and updated in fresh and feminine ways each season.
RP dresses can be styled for all seasons. I love a lightweight denim jacket for a spring style, and a faux fur overcoat looks divine for fall.
Fundamental #4: Every RP Piece Has an Element of Romance
This could be a luminous colorway, a ruffled sleeve or hemline, am embroidered skirt—soft and sensuous details that play up your sweet and feminine aesthetic.
This iconic ensemble features my favorite RP details: a demure yet flattering silhouette, lush layers, and romantic embellishments. The skinny belt cinches in the waistline, the matching designer purse adds a touch of luxury, and unique black heels round off this head-to-toe look.
Fundamental #5: An RP Look Can Be Feminine or Edgy
RP designs offer an elegant foundation for your bold and trend-forward items. Style your RP essentials every season with unique layers and statement accessories; the result is a chic and elevated aesthetic.
Combat boots and a chic leather jacket add a touch of vintage cool to our feminine RP skirt and sweater. For a classic RP vibe, we cinched in the waistline and kept to a stylish neutral palette.
Black leather pants give our classic lace RP blouse a fierce and cosmopolitan vibe.
