Finals, food, decorating, gift giving, parties and a new holiday dress seem to be the trends of this month; if only my bank account could triple in value.
Every girl loves finding the perfect dress for the season; but to only wear once? As a college student on a budget I can’t afford to wear a dress only once.
I have put together a guide on how to wear and style one holiday dress a number of times with multiple looks. Enjoy.
First and foremost you must find a simple and fabulous dress. in a simple color that can match a number of things. A solid color, with one texture is preferable.
How to dress it down
1. Style your dress down by wearing a cargo or denim jacket over it; another option could be a sweater over it that could give a cute look.
2. Shoes- Wear a pair of boots with the dress. If they are ankle boots try pairing them with a cute pair of socks.
3. Accessories- Tone down the accessories a bit. Wear a long simple necklace, and simple earrings.
