Wardrobe Threepeat: How to Wear One Dress Three Ways

Threepeat-Collage

When my newest LBD (Little Black Dress) from Monifc.com arrived to my home I was excited to see how it was going to fit. Secondly, I asked myself, “will I be able to wear it again?” I always answer “yes” especially when my husband asks. Now for the task of justifying this splurge item by really making it work for more than one occasion.

So I decided to create three looks out of one dress. 1) Red Carpet Ready, 2) Out on the Town, and 3) Business Dinner Chic.

Red Carpet Ready

My first instinct was to put together an elegant look. I love a black dress because you can pair it with your favorite pumps and you instantly look simple and elegant. Every woman needs a LBD and a good pair of go-to pumps. I decided to pair this dress with my favorite nude pumps and my very flashy, but regal BCBG chandelier earrings. The nude pump plays off of the gold in the earring and offers a little color variation. This look is perfect for an award ceremony, banquet, or upcoming holiday party.

Out on the Town

The second look I came up with is more of an edgy look, giving downtown vibes. I have been wanting to try the pants under a dress look, so this was the perfect opportunity. The asymmetrical hem can accommodates this look quite well. So because of my love for leather I decided to go with a faux leather pant under this dress to add dimension and texture. I also went with leather boots, to create a seamless effect. The turban and gold jewelry scream personal style. As you can see the same dress is now part of a “look” that’s perfect for a night out with the girls or your beau, Boaz or whatever you fancy calling him.

My last look is accomplished by the simple addition of a blazer. It’s the simplest way to give a dress new life. My closet is full of blazers because I grab one whenever I want to look a bit polished. Because I wanted to downplay the dress I added a black sandal. This is a great look for when you want to mean business, but still be a lady.

The next time you’re thinking that you have nothing to wear, think again.

So the next time you’re thinking that you have nothing to wear, think again. Pull out your little black dress and put a spin on it. Anyone can accomplish one or all of these looks.
