Now that the party season’s over and done with, you may be falling into deep regret for splurging on that party outfit which you may never wear again, ever. I mean, surely you did not spend time and effort to find the prefect party dress to only wear it once or twice, right? Good thing is, with a touch of creativity, these dresses could easily transition into your everyday outfit.
As reference, I opted for a classic LBD here, but these styling tips works with just about any dresses. The shimmery-statement one. The bright-hued one. The figure-hugging one. Maybe not a see-through one tho. Most importantly, these outfits can be recreated with pieces that you would already have in your closet (phew, no need for extra spending). You just have think out of the box!
Throw On A Blazer
… or a denim jacket, or a cardigan, or any outerwear of your choice. A blazer and dress combination just screams effortlessly stylish. It could even pass as office-appropriate (if the dress is knee length or midi length). On the flip side, denim jacket and cardigan would be perfect for a casual day out with your girls or a date night.
Layer Over A Crisp White Shirt
I’m sure that many of you have seen the ‘white tee underneath a dress’ ensemble. This is pretty much the same, but with a unique twist. It’s a subtle way to add coverage to a skin-baring dress. Imagine, a bold-coloured dress contrasted against a white shirt would look A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Don’t be afraid to play around with other colour combinations too. Alternatively, spruce up your style with a shirt that has elaborated sleeves. Also, go for a fitted shirt to avoid visible bulge. P.S. This is by far my favourite white shirt ever! The feminine tailoring and sexy V-neckline is perfect! (linked below)
Top It Off With A Cozy Sweater
Saved the best for the last. Personally, this is my favourite styling trick (I’m guilty of doing this all the time, oops). Aside from a sweater, you could pair the dress with a blouse or crop top as long as it roomy enough to let the dress flow as it is. Also, bear in mind not to have any awkward neckline overlays. Trust me, people would not able to tell that it’s a dress and think that it’s a top+skirt combination.
Extra Styling Tip
Ditch the festive heels and fancy clutch and grab some comfy sneaker or chic ankle boots and of course, your go-to cross-body bag! And there you have it, daytime-approved outfits!
