A party dress styled 3 ways...

Sunday, November 25, 2012

A few weeks ago Most Wanted & voucher codes contacted me with a challenge. To style a Christmas party dress so that it could be worn for other occasions. To show that a pretty dress doesnt have to hang in your wardrobe all year round only to be taken out for the specialist of events.
Now Im a sucker for any kind of Christmas challenge and pretty much two thirds of my wardrobe I wear day or night. I dont really separate the two. I thought this challenge would be easy but I thought wrong!
After looking at the rails of body con, sequin covered, shiny dresses that just arent 'me'. I finally landed on this beauty. Firstly this is how I would dress it for a Christmas party, with some festive wine coloured tights & high gold heels.

Dress from Oasis c/o vouchercodes, Necklace from Miss Selfridge c/o vouchercodes.
All other items from my wardrobe.

I styled it for a casual cinema date with a long knit cardy, snood, thick tights & boots.
For work I threw over a cropped jumper and teamed it with some flat velvet loafers.

Im really pleased with these different looks, and think there are many other ways I could re-work this dress. Maybe with a polka dot blouse over the top and tied in a knot? I hope you guys like this post & hopefully its maybe inspired some of you to re style a party dress you have..

  9. I love the choice of dress and the fact you've Christmasfied it with the tights and shoes. It's such a good idea as I'm not sure I'm particularly a sequin dress kinda girl either.
