Hi everybody!

I love versatility! Honestly, I always feel a sense of accomplishment when I use a dress and make it into a different piece of clothing. When I shop, I always see if I can create many looks with one piece.

Today, I took a striped sweater dress, styled it, and then styled it as a skirt. I styled the dress with oxblood accents. My oxblood snood and clutch pop out against the white, but correlate with the dark color of the black stripes, stockings, and ankle boots.

For my second look, I transformed the dress into a skirt by adding a thick sweater over the dress. The belt cinches my waist. This all black and white ensemble is a classic look and the pumps add to the classic feel.

Thank you so much for reading!

Stay beautiful,

Sofia
