Three ways to wear: black dress

It's easy to get into ruts when it comes to a particular piece of clothing. For example, I usually wear this black dress from Express with a belt and a simple necklace and that's it (example). Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I know that I'm really limiting myself by only wearing such a potentially versatile dress one way. So I'm taking a cue from Tania and sharing three other ways to wear it.

6/30 Thrifted scarf; Target flats.

7/30 Old Navy scarf; Target wedges.

8/30 Charlotte Russe necklace; Payless wedges.

This was probably the easiest remixing I've ever done; I just switched out one accessory and the shoes! (Have I mentioned how much I love scarves by the way?) I almost can't believe this dress has been in my closet this long and I hadn't really tried anything different until now. I'm sure you'll see several more ways to wear it as this challenge moves along!

  3. Lydia, these are awesome! I love how different each look is with such a small change. And that last necklace is especially gorgeous - I wanna steal it!

  4. I love how you can turn one dress into so many different outfits. I found that you can also throw a dress shirt over top (a casual one) and tie it at the waist - SUPER cute :)

  7. It's so crazy what you realize what you can do with your clothes when you actually look at them and think about it. I know for sure that I've just gotten used to buying new clothes when I get tired of mine, rather than try to remix things... Especially since I've started the 30 for 30. 

    Love the Charlotte Russe wedges. So pretty :D That last outfit is definitely my favorite, I think. Though they are all lovely and classy :)

  16. You did such a great job remixing. I actually didn't think it was a "dressy" dress until I saw that last remix.

  19. Don't you love LBD's for that reason?  I own two, one casual black wrap dress and another saucier black sheath cocktail dress and I don't think I've ever worn either of them the same way twice.  They're so versatile and classic!
