This dress has been in my closet for forever. I found it a while back, and quickly it became an easy go-to. I’ve found it can be styled professionally with a simple blazer, dressed up with a great pair of heels, or worn casually when layered with a leather jacket. Pieces that can be dressed up, down, and sideways are hard to come by – and this one was such a great score at Forever 21.
When it comes to my wardrobe, I am always in need of pieces that can work for every event. I have a small closet (seriously!) and that means I need to make the most of the pieces I have and learn how to style them in a multitude of ways. Today I am talking about how to find pieces that offer versatility, as well as how to dress down a dressy dress!
How to Dress It Down
Taking a dress from dressy to casual can seem a bit challenging, but by pairing it with casual pieces you’re able to take that event-worthy dress and turn it into something you can wear everyday. Try styling your new dress with either a leather or denim jacket to create a more low-key outfit. A leather jacket is always a great option to create a more edgy look, as where a denim jacket creates a really effortless and relaxed overall outfit.
For your shoes, try to pair your dress with a comfortable pair of flats. This will keep the outfit casual. Flats have a more casual look to them which is why they are always a great option when you’re looking to create a more low-key outfit. Plus, is there anything in the shoe department as comfortable as a pair of flats?
When it comes to your accessories be a minimalist. Play with colour and add in accessories, but remember that you’re striving to dress-down your glam dress.
