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.

Top of the World OOTDs

The Top of the World Style Winner is picked by a random generator from the party two weeks ago. The reasons are as follow: Each party runs a week minus 5 minutes. At the time of scheduling a new party, the old party is still in full swing and blogger still can join. To give all guests the same chance, the old party has to have closed before drawing the winner. In plain English, the Top of the World Style Winner visited the linkup party two weeks ago.
