Fashion 411: How to repeat your fave dress

We know that feeling when you LOVE something in your tote and want to wear it as many times as possible before you send it back. Instagram and Facebook don’t really help the outfit repeater cause but with these tips and tricks, repeating an outfit is no longer an offense! Here is how we turned around this shirt dress for 3 occasions with just some simple styling tweaks: 

For a lunch date: A pair of tall brown boots makes this drawstring dress glamorous. Layer with an easy jacket and a sparkling clutch and be ready for your date — indoors or out.

Relaxed weekend: Your trusty jean jacket takes the cool quotient of this dress up by several notches. Finish with sheer tights and ankle boots and you are ready for the weekend. 

Casual Friday: Wear with a simple blazer and black booties for a crisp look at your desk.

Here are our top three tricks on repeating a dress you can’t help but reach out to again — and again!  

Switch the vibe

Change up the look of the same outfit with a change of vibe. Picking the right layers does the trick. A romantic dress can look rock-chic with the help of a moto jacket. Make it laidback with help of a long cardigan or throw on a jean jacket for a relaxed Sunday brunch. One dress, three ways!

Accessorize smart 

Accessories not only make or break your look, but if you accessorize smart enough, you can get so much more wear out of your MVPs. Dress up or down your fave pieces with the help of the right finishing touches. Go boho with a fringed bag or choose a slick clutch for a polished look.

Add a pop of new

Just by adding something new to your look each time you choose to repeat your dress will make a world of difference. Take a cue from Olivia Palermo and belt a scarf over a dress, add fun statement details like Leandra Medine has or hop on to the season’s hottest trend: layer your slip dress with a simple tee.

Finally, repeat your outfits with confidence. You’ve got fashion royalty like Kate Middleton and Anna Wintour for company!
