One Dress Three Ways
February 7, 2011 § 4 Comments
This weekend I played around with one of my favorite dresses from Urban Outfitters. The goal was to style the dress for several occasions. The first task: the work day. By adding a slim blazer, this immediately takes the look from casual to office. Tights were also necessary as this is a bit too much bare leg for any office situation. I do work in a pretty casual office where even this would be considered fancy, but I know that many people work in very formal offices where this dress may get you some akward looks. In that case, this ensemble could be worn for a date night on a chillier evening.
The second look is for a night out on the town with either your girlfriends or your lucky man. Leaving the legs bare adds some va-va-voom while pulling hair up off your neck allows for some dangly earrings to be showcased. This tan and creme belt is a favorite and I jump at the chance to add it to any outfit. I think it takes this outfit to the next level. Just grab a neutral clutch and all eyes will be on you tonight.
The last look is for weekend wear, be it brunch, window shopping, or coffee with friends. By adding tights along with over-the-knee boots, I avoided looking too risqué for daytime. The chunky knit of the slouchy hat and sweater are a perfect contrast to the floaty material of the dress. Comfy and cute! ♥
