GET THE LOOK:
I received this beautiful dress earlier this week and was so excited to finally see it in person. I love the color and pattern and the material is silky and feels really good on…
The thing is, it’s meant to be worn as a dress – buttoned up with the drawstring belt cinched at the waist – but after trying it on, I didn’t like the way it laid across my chest so instead I decided to unbutton it all the way down and wear it over the top of a fitted body suit, with cutoffs and my new gray sandals.
Takeaway tip: Don’t ever be afraid to tweak or play around with your clothing in terms of how you wear it. Just because it might be meant to be worn a certain way, doesn’t mean you have to stick to that. Remember to think outside the box!
