I've said it multiple times on my blog how I like to find ways to restyle pieces in my closet and get the most out of my clothing pieces. Today I decided to take it a step further and restyled an old formal dress to make it a little more wearable for everyday.
Fun fact: this is my winter formal dress I wore my senior year of high school!
I'm kind of a hoarder in the fact that I hate getting rid of my old formal dresses. I have every winter formal dress, prom dress and homecoming dress I ever worn in my closet back at home and I just can't bare to part with them. Maybe one day I'll work my way up to sell them or give them to a friend who really needs a dress for an occasion, but we'll see!
To make the dress more wearable and a little more suited for ever day wear I threw on flannel shirt to cover up the sequined top. As much as I love sparkles I wanted to focus mainly on the fun flowy skirt of the dress. Skater silhouette dresses are so fun to play around with because you can easily thrown on a button down top with it and make it look like a skirt! Easy two in one piece!
To finish the look off I paired the outfit with my go to ribbed tights, black flats and a clutch. This would be such a cute date night look and you could even switch out the black tights and flats for some cute nude heels if it's warmer out!
