To me, one of the best things about fashion is mixing and matching, repurposing, and creating completely different looks with just a few switches. Case in point: this olive piece is actually a dress that I worn as a coat. I love the varying heights that it creates over the stripe dress. Bonus: it gives me a chance to extend the wear of my shirt dress into to the cooler weather.


SHOP THE LOOK:

Green tie-waist dress (worn as a coat) (similar style here {under $30} & here)

Stripe shirt dress – WhoWhatWear x Target (similar style here {under $27 with code MAINEVENT16} & here)

Grey d’orsay heels {love this suede version under $140} (similar style here & here)

  • I love the fact that you used a dress as a jacket. It looks fantastic! It’s so rewarding to create new outfits out of what you own. It’s like making dinner with what you’ve got in the refrigerator. 😀

  • Such a creative idea! I love it!

  • Celia M. High Heeled Life

    What a great idea … you look great!

  • Oh My Goodness what a great Idea two pieces in one!

    What a great idea to treat it like a coat! I have a denim dress that’s a similar length, I wonder if it would work as a coat..?? I’m going to try it!

    Thanks for hosting the link up!

  • What great way to get another use out of the dress.

    Such a good idea! At first glance I thought it was a duster jacket, love the way you styled it!

    Hope you can join my link-up here: http://bit.ly/2dcbZKk

  • How interesting (and clever) to convert one dress into a trench-like coat over a second dress 🙂
