How to Re-wear Your Bridesmaid Dress This Holiday Season

Bridesmaid dresses are beautiful!

 

And wouldn’t you agree wearing it once at a wedding is a waste? So, why don’t we re-wear it this holiday season!

In today’s post, I’m re-styling this Off-the-Shoulder Satin Gown by Jenny Yoo in two additional looks! One is suitable for formal company events, while the other works perfectly for any year-end parties! Scroll down to check out the looks:

Alternative Look 1: Business-Appropriate

Let’s say you got a formal work event you need to attend and don’t have a suitable dress (or gown) for it. Make use of what you have and simply add a blazer over it! Belt the blazer with a wide obi belt that cinches your waist and elongates your lower half.

I have blazers in various colors, but in order to keep the overall tones neutral, which is a bit more business-appropriate in my opinion, I went for a light grey one.

Keep the overall color tones neutral with a grey blazer and silver pouch.

The silver pouch is from  Jeff Wan ; you can use  HAPPILYEVERSTYLE15  to get 15% off.

Alternative Look 2: Holiday Parties

The best time to re-wear fancy dresses is year-end! Whether it is a Christmas party or New Year’s Eve celebration, you can’t go wrong with a touch a elegant glam. And because it is cold, I’m throwing on a faux fur coat to keep myself warm, but still party-ready.
