Happy Thursday, friends! Only one more day ’til the weekend!! Y’all probably remember this cotton stunner dress from the recent post I did a few days ago when I shared how toย dress up a simple, cotton dress. I actually wore the same dress today for some errands and wanted to share a great way to wear these tighter/bodycon dresses in more of a casual style. Anything I can wear dressy to casual is a must have in my book as it just screams affordable and proves that I can get my money’s worth out of the piece.

One thing I look for when buying pieces is versatility and this dress hit the nail on the head. I don’t want to sound like a broken record since I rave about it in my previous post HERE, but solid color dresses like this are such a great piece to buy. And I’m not the only one that thought this dress was amazing!ย It’s almost sold out. Probably because it’s only $28!

One way I love to dress down pieces like this is to wear it with fun sneakers. I always love a great pair of Converse to wear with dresses. It always makes your look that much sportier and cool! If your dress is solid, like this one, I would highly suggest throwing on a jacket or wearing a button down tied around your waist. I seriously never thought I would be suggesting people to wear button downs tied around their waists because it is such a 90s thing BUT its chic and will cover up that food baby too! I feel like I grew up wearing clothing like this and of course, it’s back!ย Keep things even more casual and simple with a cross body bag you can just throw on and go. This beautiful bag is made of the softest leather and is on sale for $67 but there are only a few left, so hurry!!

    I could not agree more! Solid dresses are the best, easy to style with whatever trend is hot at the moment! I have a black bodycon dress that I love to wear with an oversized denim jacket or a bomber jacket these days.

    Now THIS is my favorite way to wear a bodycon – comfy and casual. Tying a plaid flannel around my waist is definitely my go-to, since it accentuates the waist and it’s also great to have handy in case the surroundings somehow become chilly haha!

    It’s such a good idea to tie a cardigan around your waist! I often get a little self-conscious about my belly showing when I wear really tight dresses. Thank you!
