First off, let me be your first fashion blogger friend to wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Okay. Glad I could do that.
The rules for doing so are pretty basic: you just use the dress as a layering piece over jeans and a tshirt. Of course, this is contingent upon the fact that you have a dress that can be layered, which I hope you do because come on ladies, body-con sequin dresses were so 2012. Below I styled two dresses I had in my closet. Hope you enjoy.
For this Urban Renewal sequin dress I layered a white Forever 21 ribbed thermal and Madewell zip skinny jeans, plus my favorite Nordstrom BP. black booties. I imagine wearing this to brunch or a trip to the flea market. Because of the light colors I also feel this is a very spring-time, bright look, perfect for the new year.
I also tried it out on the dress I ended up wearing for New Years Eve this year:
For this sequin Forever 21 shift dress, I layered it under a basic Forever 21 heather tee, Madewell high riser jeans and Duo leopard booties. This is one of those day to night ensembles that I really feel is good for an evening dinner and a night at the movies.
I actually never thought I'd wear jeans under a dress but maybe that's what 2015 is for-- doing the unexpected.
P.s. This also means you can buy sequin dresses year round and not feel bad about it!
