You really can wear it again...take 2

Ladies here’s more proof that you can wear your bridesmaid gown again! This Watters dress is not only perfect for walking down the aisle in a spring or summer wedding, it’s also great for sprucing up a day at the office, a night out with the ladies, or dinner and definitely dessert with your new beau! The options are limitless.

What’s better, accomplishing this amazing feat, is so very simple. This is a fabulous piece to work with because the crinkle chiffon material can look great by itself but also meshes well with other fabrics. The shirred straps and wrap sash make for a fun neckline and just the right amount of feminine frill. Knowing this makes it easier to find items to pair with it.

First I started by adding a neutral colored leather jacket, found at Luci Boutique, to dress it down. Because this frock has such great details around the bust and waist, opt for a cropped jacket. Anything longer or bulkier will take too much away from the form flattering cut of the dress, and can make you look boxy. To finish the look I added a chunky necklace, compliments of FRED, to keep the look fun and fashionable.

So ladies, before you take your scissors to yards of Taffeta, remember that bridesmaid dresses can be worn again! Don’t let their name fool you. You’ll find that after all the cake and champagne toasts, they’re really a fashion gem in disguise!
