Looking to get more bang for your buck? Instead of filling up your closet with tons of different dresses, learn how to turn one into lots of different looks. You will be amazed how many different ways you can wear one dress that makes your look completely different but always trendy and chic.
Keep Your Silhouette Simple
The key to making your dress more versatile is to wear something simple that can be transformed into lots of different styles. So, if you really want to make the most of your look, pick a dress in a simple silhouette. Steer clear of bold prints and specific detailing. This isn't to say that you can't style any dress in different ways, so don't be scared to try these tricks with any frock.
Wear your dress during the day by slipping on a pair of flats. Sandals and ballet flats are always comfy and fashionable options. If you want to have some height, try an espadrille wedge. Top your dress off with a denim jacket if it's a little chilly or opt for a cardigan. If your dress is a little sexy for day, tone it down by buttoning your cardigan up, or throwing an oversized tee on top. Try belting the top to give you a more defined silhouette.
For a night out on the town, glam your dress up by pairing it with sky-high heels and make sure to add jewelry. Try rocking one statement piece like a chunky necklace, big bangle or cocktail ring. To cover up, opt for a leather motorcycle jacket or tuxedo blazer.
Turn it Into a Tunic
Instead of wearing your dress as a dress, put it on over leggings or skinny jeans to turn it into a tunic. This is a fantastic way to turn a summer dress into a fall clothing piece. Add a chunky cardigan on top to keep cool, and top the look of with boots to leave you chic and warm all winter long.
Make it Edgy
No need for your dress to always be prim and proper. Make it edgy with a few simple swaps. Try pairing yours with industrial, military-inspired lace-up booties. Wear yours with tights if it's a little cooler, or get extra trendy and pair them with socks that peek out slightly. Top it off with a leather jacket.
