Dressing Down A Party Dress

We all have those cute little dresses that linger in the back of the closet all year, only pulled out for the occasional party or special event.  

I believe that clothes are meant to be worn and loved, so here are my personal ideas for dressing down those less casual pieces and incorporating them into everyday wear!  


You want to start off with, of course, a party dress.

This can be any dress which you love, but wouldn't typically wear around town while running errands or buying groceries, for example. 


The nest step is going to be adding some 'casual basics,' sweaters, slouchy or thigh high socks, even a T-Shirt can be worn over the dress and tied at the waist to tone down the formality of the piece.
