Wedding season is here and it’s a great time especially when you’re a guest for multiple weddings. The celebration is joyful, the food is delicious, the dancing is non-stop fun, and the memories you help create will start the newly weds lives off right.
The only downfall can be the attire, especially if you’re on a budget. As we ladies know, dresses can add up, rather quickly might I add, but that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. Instead of buying multiple dresses, use one dress and style it with different accessories to transform your look for each wedding to come. I promise you, it’s that easy and I’ll show you how.
I asked my dear friend Cat to help me out with this project. She sent me multiple pictures of dresses she already had in her closet. From those, I chose only one and asked her to model this dress while I styled her five different ways.
Pulling separates from her closet and mine, styling with some of my handmade accessories we were able to take this one dress and create five different outfits.
Look #1 – Casual
This look is GREAT for a casual wedding. The dress is styled with a blue jean jacket, a pearl y-drop necklace, pearl drop earrings, a blue & white pearl rhinestone headband, and the Cherish clutch in silver.
Look #2 – Hamptons chic
A nice preppy look for a beach front wedding. I added a white button up shirt from my closet and tied it in front to add a trendy detail. The outfit is also styled with the pearl choker necklace with matching bracelet, the beaded pearl headband, and the Lace but Not Least clutch.
Look #3 – Glam
If you don’t have the money to spend on a gown, use signature pieces from your closet to glam up your dress. For an example, I adding a black skirt overtop and it already makes this outfit more glamorous! Styled with the crystal chain drop earrings, a hand beaded sash, the Cherish Clutch in black metallic, and the Chloe headband as a beautiful bling necklace!
Look #4 – Boho Chic
The Boho trend is in more than ever recently! To get this look pair your dress with something with fringe or macrame. Luckily Cat owned this crochet fringe vest which worked perfectly with this look. I also styled this dress with the crystal quartz pendant, gold chain fringe earrings, the boho chic satin flower wire crown, & a lace belt.
Look #5 – Art Deco
Ever since the Great Gatsby came to the big screen, people have been obsessed with the fashion. To achieve this style I paired this dress with the hand beaded Aubrey Tiara, the pearl reverse necklace, the pearl & rhinestone bracelet and matching earrings, the Forever & Always clutch, and belted it with a hand beaded crystal belt!
As you can see ladies, don’t stress out about wedding season. Take a good hard look in your closet for key pieces to style with some brand new accessories! Preferably from Alyson Nicole 😉
