You really can wear it again

Bridesmaids, I have another one to add to the collection of dresses that can be worn again! Go from maid of honor chic to pretty in pink in the time it takes to catch the bouquet with this duchess satin Lela Rose strapless cocktail dress! Because this dress is simple yet feminine, not much is needed to make it a great transitional piece. The detailed chiffon sweetheart neckline makes this frock fun and flirty, while the seamed a-line bodice puts a casual spin on elegance.

I chose to pair this piece with a satin-faced jacket from FRED boutique so I could work with the feminine details of this dress that make it so fabulous. But let's talk about the jacket first- which has so many great details! From its three-quarter bubble sleeves to its neckline - this piece truly accentuates the cut and features of this Lela Rose dress. The best part is that the cobalt gray of the jacket creates a more edgy look perfect for a night out on the town. And if you really want to step up your look, add a beautiful pair of leopard print pumps and a gold bangle for a look that’s sure to get you a double take or two.

Don’t be afraid to take your bridesmaid dresses out and spruce them up. They don’t have to be the green monster hiding in your closet. If you follow these simple style tips you might just find your new favorite!
