SG'Style: A Skirt as a Dress, Maybe for Maternity Too!

I accidentally ran into this tier wrinkled skirt by Club Monaco, which laid dormant in the closet for years and became one of the closet orphans. I have heard gal pals talked about wearing a skirt as a dress but scoffed at the idea. However, I maybe be changing my mind. I don't know if I will wear these looks often but being savvy is about becoming creative with my wardrobe and working with what I have without running to the mall, sometimes.

look 1 -
Just the skirt by itself, I have informed a pregnant gal pal this could be a good look for her so there is no need for her to buy additional maternity wears. (smile)

look 2 -
Using a wide belt to create a waist. I am using half of a Gucci (black wide band leather with loop) belt and a burgundy/black twisted Moschino belt to tie the dress and the belt together, since the dress is a red burgundy color.

look 3 -
Using a pretty pin, which create interest in the back, to gather excess fabric to the back creating a more fitted dress. I accent the dress with a long necklace, multi-strands would look very savvy as well.

  7. This is a fanTAStic idea!! I have a few longer skirts that I think would really work as strapless dresses with a belt, as you have pictured here - yay!

  10. #2 and 3 are wonderful. I love a defined waist. Funny how you can reinvent an item from past seasons, isn't it? I'll admit I don't make us of this ability myself...but I love seeing people pull it off with aplomb.
