Do you have a killer dress in your closet, which you are ready to wear all year round? If you do, you need new ways to style it. Such all-purpose dresses are great. However, your friends and co-workers may notice you wearing the same outfit season in and season out.
So what can you do to diversify your favorite dress? We’ve asked fashion experts to share a few dress styling tricks that can turn one dress into many with the least effort. Read on!
1. Basic T-Shirt
Let’s make something clear. We are talking about short- or no-sleeved dresses here. If you have a favorite long-sleeved dress, it may not be suitable for the hot season. Meanwhile, short sleeves are amazing all year round.
A basic t-shirt can make any no-sleeve dress look casual while making the owner feel warmer. You can go further to get a basic long-sleeved shirt to wear underneath the dress. Don’t go crazy with the colors if your dress is multi-colored. Stick to black and white t-shirts.
2. Colorful Leggings
Another way to add some warmth to your outfit is to take advantage of leggings. Just like t-shirts, leggings can turn your dress into something special. For example, Boxhill miracle dresses look entirely different with and without leggings or tights.
The best part about the leggings is that you can add some color to your look without making a big investment. Change the color and wear a new outfit every day.
3. Strict Turtleneck
Does your favorite dress open up your shoulders too much? Don’t worry. You can wear it to a meeting when coupled with a turtleneck. Also, you can wear a turtleneck underneath the dress to sport a fashionable look.
You can also pull the turtleneck over the dress to turn it into a skirt. This can help you create a completely different outfit.
4. Belt Collection
Belts can change the appearance of any dress, starting from little black dresses and ending with wraps. A simple belt can become a savior for your good old dress. Don’t hesitate to purchase a nice collection of handmade leather belts, from simple leather straps to large chains.
A belt can either be worn on the waist or lifted to the under the chest area to change the appearance of wraps, sweater, and t-shirt dresses.
5. Shoes and Bags
Shoes and bags can do wonders. When you wear your favorite dress with sneakers and a backpack, it looks different from when you sport high heels and a clutch. These days, you don’t have to worry about matching shoes to the bag or any of them to the dress.
Allow your imagination to run wild to help you come up with different combinations. A bag can change the outfit regardless of its size. Shoes can turn it from casual to formal and vice versa.
Are you a little tired of the way your dress looks or perhaps need to make it warmer? A scarf can do wonders for styling your dress. You can wear it over your shoulders, wrap it around your waist, use it to cover your head, and much more.
Large scarfs can hide the majority of your dress, revealing whatever you want to show the world.
Just as bags and shoes, jewelry can easily change the style of your dress. A simple silver chain can add a casual look to your attire. Meanwhile, a diamond necklace can turn it into a ball gown. Experiment with jewellry to tweak your favorite dress in many different ways.
A dress is just a small part of your outfit. You can style it to become something else with only a few accessories.
