How to Get More Wear Out of Your Dresses
Are you constantly buying dresses? I get it! They are easier to purchase because you do not have to think about matching top to bottom!
First, put on your favorite dresses that your friends have seen you in a million times because…Hello…they are your favorite! You can get more use of the dresses by using them as skirts. I started with my Karina Dress because I have been wearing it non-stop lately. They are so easy to wear!
Second, grab a cropped top or a DIY cropped top like the one I made from Target. Here are the DIY directions. I chose a Merona Favorite V-Neck Tee from Target to use as my cropped top for the dress to skirt DIY. If you have a large chest or have an hourglass figure, then v-neck is for you. If you have a smaller chest or look great in crew necks, then by all means, use a crew neck top. Either way, the top should be fitted to the body. Stay in a dark family so that you cannot see the top of the dress though your top.
Next, use a wide belt to cinch your waist and cover up the seam in between the “skirt” and top. This makes it look like you are tucking a top into a skirt rather than putting a top over a dress. I used a stretchy belt with a faux leather front for extra comfort.
Finish off with a little bit of jewelry and heels! 🙂
This Dress to Skirt DIY makes it easy to bring your dresses into the fall as you can throw a long sleeve button down, turtle neck, or long sleeve shirt over your dresses.
Have you worn dresses as skirts before? How excited are you to try to turn your dresses into skirts?
