How to dress down a black evening dress (Personal styling)

My lovely ladies, today I’ll show you how to dress down a black evening dress for a more relaxed look. The idea crossed my mind because at the beginning of summer I purchased the lovely black evening dress you see me wearing today. But I didn’t have many chances to wear it at night, and it was a pity, considering its flattering silhouette and flirtatious lace details. Not to mention it’s extremely comfortable and comes in handy when you have bad legs days (don’t you?) or bloated belly days (I’m sure you do). So I had to find a way to make it look more casual, even though it’s black and its fabric is more appropriate to night-time. Well, I started by styling it with flat casual sandals, very plain and simple ( you saw me wearing them here). And added a statement necklace made with natural stones, definitely a day-time accessory. I completed my look with a pink envelope clutch in soft leather, and with beaded stones bracelets (another day-time accessory). What do you think babes? Do you like repurposing items in your wardrobe to create brand new looks? For a custom wardrobe revamp do not hesitate to get in touch!

    Yes! I absolutely do love to find different ways to wear the same dress, especially when I have a beautiful evening gown like this one. It really is exquisite with the special lace details! I love to dress up but I’m a Kindergarten teacher so I try to find ways to still wear my pretty dresses but in a dressed down way like you did here. I have a long black taffeta Maxi and I’m going to try to style it like this, with flats and colorful accessories for work this week!

    Hello Sister,
    Once again you impress us all with another beautiful dress. This evening gown looks like it should be in a movie, you styled it perfectly and look amazing in each shot! I hope all these ladies will follow in your lead and get inspired.
    Love, Dom

    This is definitely a dress I would have never thought could be dressed down, but you my friend, have made it happen in such a gorgeous way! You’re going to have to find an event to dress it up for nighttime so we can see 🙂

    I never think to style a long dress with flat shoes but it really is such a cute and delicate look. Also – love this clutch – what a gorgeous colour! X
