As promised, I am showing you how to wear a dress as a skirt! This is just one of the many ways I shop my closet and try to add more versatility. Remember this dress that I used as a shirt?
A friend of mine gave me this dress that she had bought for a wedding because it was unflattering. To be honest, this silhouette would be unflattering on most people because of the thickness in straps and the waistline. Instead of donating the dress, I figured I would try and work with the skirt because I love pleats and don’t have any mint colored clothes.
Since this dress really doesn’t do anything for my waist or arms, I chose a chambray long sleeve shirt to cover the top part of the dress. Wearing button down shirts with dresses are easier because they can be tucked in and tied. All you have to do is tie the shirt at your waistline! You can also use a belt to emphasize the skirt from the shirt.
I love finding new ways to wear clothes I already own! How do you shop your closet to add verstatlity?
