I for one and looking forward to this weekend -although I hear we will be getting a lot of rain! But still, I am looking forward to relaxing and being able to spend more time with my blog and hopefully getting some shoots in!
If you are anything like me, you might stare into your closet and might as well be staring at an empty closet. It is like there is nothing there to wear! Which is ridiculous of course but sometimes I get bored with the clothes I have or perhaps I am not feeling inspired or creative -whatever the case maybe. That is the inspiration for this post. I got creative and created four relatively unique outfits using only one dress.
#1. As a Dress. This is the most obvious way to wear the dress; as a dress . I accessorized it with a patterned scarf and brown, leather cross body bag. That look is perfect for summer or spring and can be changed up easily enough with a different scarf or a necklace instead of a scarf, or a change of bags/shoes.
#2. As a Skirt. Last fall I wore this several times. I paired an interestingly designed sweater over the dress. I love the way it looks. It has a very different look than simply wearing as a dress.
#3. As a Shirt. If you follow my blog regularly, you might recognize this pairing. I paired a striped, Gap, Cupcake skirt over the striped dress. The effect of the different stripes is what really makes this outfit work. They are different enough to make an impact but not so much that it is tacky. The gold necklace really anchors the outfit.
#4. With a Jacket and Accessories. Now that it is getting cooler and not appropriate to wear it solely as a dress, throwing a lightweight jacket (or trench coat or blazer) can be effective. I added yellow heels and a bright blue necklace to spice it up even more.
All it takes is a little creativity and some mixing and matching, but it is possible to create several different looks with just a few -or one- piece. And even these looks can be changed by swapping out a skirt for a different skirt, or as I mentioned before, a blazer instead of a lightweight jacket. I hope this helps and may spark some creativity. Let me know what you think! Thanks for reading and have a great weekend! =)
