One dress: 3 unique styles
Buy one dress, get six free.
That’s the benefit of getting a convertible dress. And best of all, the extra six don’t take up extra space in your closet.
A convertible dress is a dress with adjustable straps or other features that you can swap out to create different looks.
Here’s our favorite style, by Adrianna Papell, in midnight blue — a universally flattering color that stylists agree is more complementary than stark black (which really only looks the best on people with black hair).
Here are three different ways to wear this one dress.
1. Casual and beachy:
Tie the straps back to wear this solid blue maxi dress as a casual summer dress. Pair it with a pair of flat sandals and a long, chunky necklace, some playful earrings and your hair in a high ponytail. A boho sling bag will tone down the look enough for a day at the beach.
Try these tan, fringe Morgan flip-flops from Target.com if you want to go ultra relaxed without sacrificing an ounce of trend.
2. Sophisticated and sultry:
Transform the dress into a classy night at the opera or even wedding attire by affixing the straps over one shoulder. Accent the asymmetrical, single-shoulder look with a loose bun, a metallic clutch, open-toe pumps and oversized chandelier earrings.
3. Casually elegant:
Tie the straps so they create a strapless dress, for an elegant, but not overdone date night look. Give it a new edge with geometric shape earrings and a wide belt cinched at the waist. Throw a long cream fringe kimono on top in place of a lightweight jacket if you’re feeling funky.
