One Dress: Two Ways

As the sun is gradually peaking through the clouds and warming up the earth again, so too is it the time of year when dressing becomes hardest as you segue between warmish days and freezing winds or drizzle. Not to mention all the sudden freak out from the magazines about dressing for weddings...I realise its the season and all, but not everyone has a slew of marriages to attend during the summer!

However, not many people want to be splashing out on an outfit that can only been worn once these days, so garments that prove themselves versatile enough to be worn in a number of different ways are worth their weight in sartorial gold.

I really like the print on this little prom dress, possible due to my obsession with the colours red and blue, but I think it works as a summer day dress as well as a more formal dress for numerous occasions.

For day, I paired it with a clashing print on the tribly, some dog tags and classic biker jacket and boots. It could be a good look for a festival, comfy for shopping or meeting friends.

For formal wear occasions like a wedding, garden party or bar hopping I put the dress with some blue satin courts, a cosy cardigan to wrap up in if it gets chilly, a flirty hairband and a kitsch bracelet of pearls and sparkles.

That prom dress is beautiful. It has a perfect balance in the amounts each flower and leaf's colour and the amount of white background showing. I like the swingy look to the dress below the smocked waist. It would be nice to wear to a party, perhaps with a lace shawl or or the blue blazer and hat for when the temperature dropped in the evening or out on the veranda.

i like both styles...but like the day wear look best. we both like the dynamic play of blue and red it seems.

great outfit! that dress is beautiful. I have a hard time dressing myself this time of year due to the wide swings in temperature - freezing in the morning and high 60s in the afternoon.
