Dress down a fancy piece for Day

Wednesday, April 23, 2014




"Fashion should be fun." We've all heard this time and time again. 
Well I don't know about you, but when I hear this, I think of people like Anna Dello Russo, who are absolutely fabulous and have fun with fashion. Unfortunately, most of Anna's looks I would never step out of my house in, they aren't "wearable". 
When I turn that phrase into something more realistic to my everyday, I think of dressing down the most glam pieces in my wardrobe. 
This feather skirt, I last wore HERE, I wore for a night out. 
It's a piece I love, so I decided to take it for a spin for a lunch date. 
I made the feathers more wearable by adding a basic tee, flats and the fool-proof denim jacket.
I challenge you to find a glam piece from your closet, and see how you can style it to achieve a daytime look.

that is freaking awesome! love your skirt! i've been wanting to wear mine again, but felt like it was too glam for the given occasion! thanks for the inspo!

Glenda said...

You are correct about the items Anna wears, but you nailed this look. Very inspiring!

I totally agree! I also think a denim jacket makes pretty much everything wearable, I know I love mine for that reason.

I'm ALWAYS trying to find options for styling my "dress up" clothes in "dress down" ways!! My husband and I don't lead a very ritzy life, but that doesn't mean I don't fall in love with a pretty party dress every now and then...why the heck shouldn't we be able to wear feathers and sequins during the daytime, right?!

You look so cute!! Love this style on you =)

Lauren Maria said...

great way of dressing it down, i have so many skirts i hardly wear because they're too 'fancy'

Daniella said...

I love the way you styled this feather skirt! You've dressed it down beautifully, you look super chic and I really love the splash of leopard :)

Take care,
Daniella xox

LOVE this look! What a brilliant idea and a great way to get more use out of the dressy items in your closet.

That skirt is killer.

I love this skirt, it's beautiful. I like the combination with the denim jacket and animal print bag, a complicated mix, but it works well.

Gorgeous! I love wearing evening pieces in the daytime - feels such a waste to have them lingering in the closet! (of course, if you have any ideas on how to dress down a wedding dress....I'm all ears!). BTW, totally ignoring your troll anon commenter is clearly the best way, negative energy and jealousy ahoy. Have a great one x

This isn't really what I would call a "how to." I was hoping for a list of tips and tricks with more examples, instead of just an example. :/
