Accessorise: Turn Day Wear into Evening Wear

Day dress to evening dress and accessories

What’s better than buying a new dress? Buying a new dress that you can wear over and over again! How many times have you bought a dress for a special occasion, only to put it back in the wardrobe and not get another opportunity to wear it? While we firmly believe you can never have too many dresses, we love a dress that’s versatile and can be worn on a night out, on a shopping trip with the girls, or even at the office.

So what’s the secret to having a dress this versatile? We think it’s a combination of two things – the dress itself and your accessories. This fabulous black & white block colour number fits the bill perfectly – it’s so flattering on its own, and different accessories would give it a different look each time, depending on the occasion. Here are some ideas for what you could do with a dress like this:

Dress down for a casual day out

For shopping trips, casual meet-ups with friends, days out exploring a new city or strolling down the beach on holiday, this dress is so easy to wear. Pair with thick tights and boots and add a splash of extra colour with a gorgeous REW scarf or large wool cape and a bag that incorporates two or three of those colours and ties the outfit together.

Wear to work

Make this dress work-ready by adding a smart jacket. A piece of contemporary jewellery from SENCE will make a subtle finishing touch with their semi-precious stones, or go for the statement and add a unique necklace or bracelet from BATUCADA.

Add sparkle for a night on the town

Though this dress can be worn less formally; it’s so versatile you’ll feel just as gorgeous wearing it to your next party. Some fabulous crystal drop earrings would go great with this –  a pair of strappy sandals and a sparkly clutch bag to match.

You could even wear this dress for a day at the races by adding heels, a bright clutch and a matching hat or fascinator. It’s so exciting to have a dress you can be so creative with – happy accessorising!
