Take Two: Re-Styling Holiday Dresses with The ModStylists

When scoping out holiday dresses, do you ever find the perfect one, only to wonder where else you’d wear it? Are you ever struck with the dread of tucking that stunning number into the back of your closet, only to patiently wait for the next year to roll around?  Stop right there.

The ModStylists have swooped in with more of their outfitting vision, so you can refresh those special occasion centerpieces for just about anything on the agenda. Special thanks to our lovely Customer Care advocates for modeling these A+ ensembles!

Your ‘Vest’ Self

As seen on Georgia, this elegantly-detailed black dress gets toned down for daytime with the addition of a neutral vest. Textures abound on this well-crafted ensemble, with the winning combo being menswear-inspired tweed atop the flowing chiffon fabric of the frock at hand. There’s nothing better than a one-step styling hack, and this outfit is proof!

Leverage Those Separates

While blouses and slacks are a classic combo for work, the addition of a polished top beneath a sophisticated lace dress creates a new iconic pairing! Abby shows us how it’s done by sporting a blouse to match her frock’s lining, creating the illusion of an entirely new number. A contrast-hued top would work wonderfully here, too!

From Office to Opera

A vintage-inspired sheath dress serves as the foundation for these two diverse looks. Sam creates the illusion of a sweater-and-skirt set by layering a basic turtleneck over the bodice of this otherwise sultry number, resulting in a look that’s office-appropriate while still being packed with personality. Once night falls, she swaps out the pullover for a velvet bolero and a sparkling necklace to outline the sweetheart neckline of her theater-ready ensemble.
