CREATIVE STYLING: Once Upon a Time…3 Dresses, 1 Skirt

Remember on my last post how I changed the above dress into a top?

How creative are you with your style? If you’re finding that your wardrobe is lacking a bit of spunk or that it’s always same old, same old- then now’s the time to do something different!

Diy’s are always fun to do, especially when we really can’t wear the piece anymore (example: it doesn’t fit).  But there are some diy’s that require No Change at all!  It’s called: Creative Styling.

Creative styling just requires you to use your imagination to start wearing an item in a completely different way than it was originally intended- WITHOUT altering the piece.

Here are some examples of creative styling: 

  1. using a scarf as a belt
  2. Wearing tops front to back
  3. Wearing a jacket as a top
  4. Wearing a cardigan as a wrap-around top
  5. Wearing a dress as a top
  6. Wearing a house duster as an evening top or dress (You’ve seen lots of this happening on this post)
  7. Turning a short dress into a long dress…

The possibilities are endless.  Today, I’m gonna do Number 7!  See how I turned 3 short dresses into midi looks- just with one skirt!

Here are two of the dresses I creatively styled-up.
This is the way the dress is originally intended to be worn
All you need is one long SHEER skirt….
Wear the dress over the long sheer skirt, plus a belt: Here is Look No. 1
Same Skirt- different Dress: Look NO. 2
Same Skirt , third dress: Look NO. 3

And there you have it! Seriously…How easy was that?

Wanna see the process? Please watch here:

I strongly encourage you to play in your closet and do some Creative Styling of your own! If and when you do- please share and link back to me! I’d love to see what you come up with and will share in my insta stories as well. Enjoy!
