How To Repurpose Your Party Dress For Date Night

Share

Contrary to popular belief, you can wear your favorite party pieces beyond holidays and weddings. While we’re not suggesting you show up to the office in a ball gown (although a girl can dream), there’s a modest way to rock your cocktail attire for more commonplace occasions. By incorporating a few extra layers or opting for flats, you can turn a big-night look into date-appropriate garb in a flash. Here, we’ve done the styling for you.
