This is my current favorite way to keep on wearing dresses that could otherwise be rare to sport again because bought for a specific occasion (like a party for example). Just like every other girl in the world I have never wanted to miss the chance to buy a brand new dress if I have to attend some precise celebration. But soon after that special time is gone you could find the new dress hanging in my closet and be left almost abandoned there. So I decided to layer the formal dress with a more informal and chunky sweater to make everything wearable again outside a party-time circuit. What I also do to make this kind of outfit work is staying simple – but effective – with accessories because the dress itself already has some sparkles, so I do not want to exaggerate. The secret when you already have a dress with a bold or sparkling element is to go with effective and understated additions. Just add one pop of color to give dimension!
