No one buys a dress, with the thought “I’ll never ever wear this again.” Eh. Unless we’re talking about the oh-so-lovely bridesmaids dresses we’re all forced lucky enough to purchase, but now I’m getting sidetracked. When shopping for dresses, all girls know that it’s a huge bonus, when the dress has potential to be worn several times! Below we captured three different dresses & two styles for each! Hopefully, you can take a few of these tips & apply them to your own wardrobe. If not, stop in – we’ll get you all dressed up.
This smock dress [insert googly heart eyes emoji]. That’s all. I can’t get over how much I love it! No one ever said dresses can’t be layered, so I put a sleeveless collared top underneath, to give it a much needed pop of color!

The second look is probably my favorite. Add some tights to your dress, a simple accessory (I used Vera Bradley’s Soft Fringe Scarf, in Fanfare) & some fun ankle booties! Simple!

Maxis are the perfect versatile dress because they can so easily be turned into a skirt! Check out the Splendid In Stripes Maxi! Now, if you know me, you know I’m not a huge fan of pink, so I decided to turn this maxi into a more casual skirt, just by adding a simple tee! Easy, huh?

Do you embrace pink? Then try the second look! This dress is so flowy & the strapless style gives it such a beachy feel, that I added a floppy hat – perfect for sunny days or vacations!

I always see girls wearing their dresses with jeans, so I tried it out! It’s my new favorite. Jeans are a fantastic way to give your dress a more casual feel. To you naysayers, who say, “but it’s summer;” I say “we live in New York state. Chances are it’ll be cold again in 37 minutes.”

The second look. Um, hello! I’m a genius. Just kidding. Megan had to help with this one. She told me “just try it.” I did. We were beyond happy with the outcome! Just because it’s “unconventional” to wear a tank over a thicker strapped sleeveless dress, does not mean it can’t be done! Try this with something in your closet; we dare you! If it’s a little too flowy, go ahead & belt it, to give it a more cinched appearance & show off your waistline!
