A well fitting dress is instant style

The easiest way to look instantly stylish is throwing on a dress, add a pair of pumps, earrings, a bangle and necklace, makeup, and finish with a bag. Done. You are ready to go. Of course, there is more to a beautiful dress. It can make you look great in different ways.

Nevertheless, my mom didn’t like dresses. She used to say that on can wear a dress only the same way. I think this depends on the dress. For an evening gown, cocktail dress, wedding dress, the statement may be true. But I believe that this statement is not for an everyday dress.

First, there is nothing wrong wearing the same dress with different pairs of shoes, and bags. Furthermore, one can wear a dress as a shirt, and one can wear a dress as a skirt.

Wear your dress as a shirt or skirt to mix things up and extend your wardrobe. #fashiononabudget #styletip Click To Tweet

Other ideas to wear a summer dress

This dress, for instance, can be worn with a white denim jacket, a denim jacket, a cardigan in any of the colors of the print. For this post, I styled the dress up with open-toe pumps and a cardigan, and down with wood sandals and an athleisure jacket, and once just as a summer dress. Note you can apply the same tricks also to wear a sheath in multiple ways or try to create with one dress two looks by using similar items but in different colors. See these inspirations how to wear a fav sheath differently.
