HOW TO WORK YOUR COCKTAIL DRESS FROM NIGHT TO DAY

Do you ever think about how much money you spend on cocktail dresses that you only really end up wearing a couple of times? Cost per wear is something that I have been thinking seriously about for a while now, and cocktail dresses are a tough one. We obviously need to have nicer pieces in our wardrobe for those more formal occasions, but who says we can't start incorporating them into our everyday wardrobe? Well I'm here to show you that you can - in this post I'm taking a simple black cocktail dress from day to night.

STYLED FOR A NIGHT OUT

STYLED FOR DAYLIGHT HOURS

My favourite way to work a cocktail dress during the day is popping a classic white tee underneath and pairing it with some sneaker. When choosing a tee to put under your dress I find that going with a higher crew neck is the way to go - I actually found this one at Zara Man, is the perfect cut and really light weight.

Colder weather? Throw on a leather or denim jacket and you're ready to go. I was told when leaving the house wearing this by my boyfriend that it looked as though I was going to a farmers market.. so there you go, farmers market approved!

I hope this helps you to think outside the square a little bit, makes your wardrobe stretch a little further and gives you more bang for your buck! Have another idea to make your wardrobe more versatile? Let me know, I would love to hear from you!
