You purchased a dress for your birthday celebration,
wore it for the night, and it hasn’t seen daylight since.
Just because the dress – and you in it – made an impression
doesn’t mean you can’t wear it out again.
“I never wear the same dress twice” is a silly saying,
especially when you can totally revamp the ensemble
to make it feel brand new again!
We’ve taken a gorgeous Tibi dress from the shop
and transformed it for four different events.
Take note and use these tips next time you have a wedding, shower,
or cocktail event to attend.
Here is the birthday dress; it’s bright, flirty, cut to perfection and has a hint of sparkle. Paired with killer heels and stand-out jewelry, this look ensures the Birthday Girl to be at the center of attention. But just because the spotlight isn’t on you doesn’t mean you can’t still rock this frock…
It’s also perfect for that wedding you’ve been invited to! To subdue the shine add a lightweight cardigan – this also makes dress more conservative. You can still sparkle, just keep the accessories simple and to a minimum.
Oh, and that baby shower for your old college friend? The dress works for this occasion, too! Nothing says “babies” like bright colors. Play up the hues in the dress with turquoise heels and a plum handbag. We love the shimmer on this Cynthia Steffe jacket; it accents the metallic in the dress while still feeling sophisticated.
You may be surprised to discover this dress to also be suitable for a business event. For a cocktail party with professionals, put on a jacket that mimics the style of a blazer; it feels work-appropriate but a little more elegant. Also, you’ll want to eliminate flashy accessories – go for patent leather pumps in a rich burgundy and a luxe handbag in navy leather.
See? You’re options are endless!
