The Dress Trick…

Yesterday, I decided to rethink a dress that I had worn on a couple of occasions. I got a few comments from shocked co-workers who were impressed with what I had done. I had learned about this trick from one of the first blogs I ever read on fashion, Extra Petite. I basically just threw a sweater over my dress so that I could break it up a bit. In the winter, I usually also pair it with a collared shirt. Ta-da! Dress as skirt!


Another way of transforming a dress- wear it as a top. Above, I took a short tunic and simply rolled it onto itself. I then added a longer skirt and it immediately becomes appropriate to wear at a business casual office.

Say bye to that mod mini-dress! Tuck it into some trousers. 
I can’t lay claim on this idea. I first saw it at Extra Petite – short people know how to do it! Give it a try some time…
Happy Friday!
