Dress Transformation: Accessories Edition

by Shortgirlbigmood

Give me allllll the dresses. I love the ease, comfort and style of a good dress. And for years I took dresses at face value, wearing them just as intended straight off the hanger. But lately I've gotten brave with accessories, helping transform one dress into two, three, four looks.

Let's start with this cute polkadot dress.

Adorable on it's own, but elevated by adding a straw boater hat.

One of the best style tips I will ever give is to tie a denim jacket around your waist to add definition and panache.

The night start to cool off? Throw that jacket around your shoulders for a chic look!

Now let's check out a t-shirt midi dress and see what we can do to bring the style!

Super cute on it's own.... but....

A jacket around the waist is even cuter!

Or what about a belt? I think this is a great workwear solution!

Grab that jacket again and you can go straight from work to happy hour!

Now, some dresses don't need much styling because their design is show stopping enough. Take this maxi from Target...

I didn't want to distract from the ruffle sleeves and eyelet detail so all I did was add a statement necklace and a bold pop of leopard with the clutch. Don't overthink it! Use what you have and have fun! Fashion is an extension of you so you do you and enjoy it!
