Back in the day (as your gran would say) white dresses were reserved for walking down the aisle on your big day. Skip forward a few generations and white dresses have become a hot trend to be worn casually during the day or spruced up at night.
But can an actual wedding dress be made versatile?
I put this question to the test.
A local wedding dress rental boutique was having a closing down sale and liquidizing stunning gowns for $5 and $10! Amazed by the quality and excited by the prospect of customizing, I snapped up two dresses and put my scissors to work.
Here's one of the dresses before (was $10!!):
The Finished Product
I cut the dress into an asymmetric hemline, with a longer back and a shorter, square shaped front. Safe to say I'll be wearing this baby on numerous occasions...
Look One: Cute and Casual
Denim is perfect for dressing down a more formal dress. Combine this with a fedora, sunnies and clogs and I'm all set for a day out! I turned a daisy flower crown into a belt, which keeps the look girly but still gives it a more casual appeal.
Look 2: For a Night Out
Gold jewellery is a perfect option for looking dressy but not wedding-y. I love this Lovisa arm cuff- it's so quirky! Heeled wedge boots also give the look an edgier, punkier feel.
Look Three: For The Office
A wedding dress for work? Seems like a joke right?! I layered the dress over a classic black shirt, added the classic Chanel bag and black heels- hello office!
Which look is your fave?
