The standard party dress lives a pretty sad existence when you think about it. From no fault of her own, despite how gorgeous she is and how desperately she wants to be out roaming the world like the rest of your wardrobe, she’s all too often left hidden away in your closet, holding her breath and waiting for the next appropriate event to come along so she can finally come out and make a public appearance. Chances are, you may even have a couple of these lovely ladies hiding in the back of your closet, and it’s up to you to help these girls out and give them a chance to roam about in environments other than a party. Here are a couple of ways to sneak your friend into your regular daily attire by dressing her down so she can fit in.
Super Tips for Styling A Party Dress
Blazer Or Jacket
A well-fitted blazer looks sharp no matter what it’s paired with. Slapping one on gives sophistication to any outfit you can conjure up. When styling a party dress with one they can make a bodycon dress look like a simple pencil or mini skirt making it look professional and work appropriate. If you’re wearing a dress with a flared skirt, a blazer will give the appearance of it simply being an A-line or skater skirt. Jackets can work similarly as blazers depending on it’s shape and type, and doubt I need to go too into detail about how amazingly sex an everyday leather jacket is or how sharp it would look over a shift dress.
For a particularly funky and adventurous look when styling a party dress try partnering together a loose crop top over a bodycon dress. A crop top that’s looser with an off the shoulder neckline can provide an interesting addition of playfulness since the top of the dress will be allowed to peek out.
Make way for everybody’s favorite accessory… the scarf. When assembling an outfit there is nothing nearly as versatile as the scarf. It can be functional, decorative, complimentary, disguising and tone setting depending on the scarf you choose. A bulky oversized scarf thrown on can completely repurpose your party dress for another event.
