Don’t ever believe that once the homecoming event is over, the dress is useless and you can never wear it again. The special night might have ended, but your fashion sense and statement gown live for eternity. No matter if you want it to make it more suitable for class, an informal work environment or every day wear, here are some tips to effortlessly dress down your fierce and flawless homecoming dress like a pro.
- Be playful with the basics
As every outfit is different, be playful with the different patterns, textures, and colors to experiment with your homecoming dress. Delve into your wardrobe and let your inner fashion goddess come up with glamorous matches. If you are pairing your dress with neutral colors, it will make it look less formal. You can start basic with casual stuff like a denim jacket for a cool look. You can also pair it with your favorite patterned leggings or tights. The list is endless.
- Add some layers
In the colder seasons, you have a wide variety of choices to choose from. Layers help in converting a formal outfit into an informal one. You can add a sweater or a loose cardigan to bring a cute and comfy vide. You can try a flannel or white t-shirt underneath the dress to give it an edgier look. You can even consider tying these layers around your waist to give it a super chic look. If the weather is way too wintery, include gloves, beanie and your favorite scarf.
Wear sober accessories to detract the effortless attention you are trying to create. Hence, you do not want to don the same jewelry you wore the night of homecoming. Keep away from long earrings, bold bracelets, and shimmering chokers. Go for minimal jewelry like a simple watch or a bangle or maybe no jewelry is also an option. The same goes for your hair, go for a messy bun or just plain and down.
You probably wore heels for your homecoming dress adding gold to your fancy appeal. An easy way to make your dress look less fancy is to change your shoes to something less formal. Try to go for flats, sandals, boots, or sneakers. They are simply sober, not showy, completing the casual look perfectly and more comfortably.
