Dress to Skirt 1

Tyke Photography

I few months ago, I discussed minimalism. Now I would like to focus on getting the most out of your wardrobe. Interchanging pieces in your closet is the simplest way to expand your wardrobe. I can’t tell you how many times I bought a dress and failed to save it from “closet fever”. To avoid my dress from collecting dust, I started shopping out of my closet. I thought, why not wear my dress as a skirt? Although this idea is nothing new, apparently I did not entertain the thought until now. Ha!

So you’re in the closet, what’s your next move? Grab the dress of your choice and start styling. Add a top, belt, shoes, a few accessories, and you’re ready to go. If your dress is fun and flirty (ex: feathers, structured), a fitted top can be more flattering. Adding a belt will accentuate your waist. Creating an A-line shape will draw attention to your waist and highlight an hourglass figure. If the dress hugs your body, a loose fitting top is more ideal; for instance, wearing a chunky knit sweater over a form-fitting dress. However, if you want the laid-back chic look, pairing a loose fitting dress with a chunky knit sweater can be just as stylish. Just be sure the look flatters your body.

Thanks for stopping by NRJS! Until next time!

  1. Looking beautiful as always!!
    And yes, like you, I knew about this but haven’t done it either.
    So next time i’m freaking out about what to wear, I’ll imagine I’m you and hope I come out looking half as composed as you do here.

  2. You look so hot! I love the pink coat oh what a darling piece! Yes the look of styling a shirt over a dress is so popular right now and I’m happy to learn the different types of styling like a fitted top to a fun and flirty skirt! Hope you have an amazing day dear! 🙂 xo~ Lena
