It seems quite sad when you think that a beautiful dress will be trapped in the closet as it awaits for the perfect dressy occasion. But why should we wait until then? Below is my style advice to jen1990’s question on casualizing a party dress for everyday!
PS: In love with the Alexander McQueen tote!!
So unfortunately, your dress, alone, is dressy. BUT fortunately, we can work around it to be worn casually or for the day!
The dressy thing about your dress is the one strap, so I suggest you to tuck that in when you wear it, so that it look like a tube top. Refer to the set I created for you!
For such a vibrant green, gold is a better choice than silver accessories.
So since you said that you follow the preppy trend..it’s the left side of the set I made. A blazer can sharpen your look and balance out the flowiness in your dress. Match it with gold accessories. The crystals on the gold flipflops brings the outfit down a notch so you still have the daywear look. AT THE SAME TIME, this sharp daywear can be transformed for a fun night out with the girls. You want to dress up but not be dressy, you know what I mean? You can add the black belt like I did there. Change the shoes for something more sleek, maybe even a bit of black patent?
For a more casual look, refer to the right side of my set. Wear the black sheer blouse on top of your dress. Unbutton the bottom buttons so that you can effectively tie your shirt in a knot at the crease wear the skirt starts. Unbutton the top buttons so we can see your beautiful neck. Charm bracelets are fun! The charms on the bracelet represent you and never go out of style!
Carry a statement bag like the McQueen bag! It’s so sexy and practical for you to carry lots of things. Plus the gold detail on the bag goes with all your gold accessories. This bag is stylish… the design is not too busy/distracting and its casual!
Hope my long ass advice had some helpful tips loll.
