So you found your dream prom dress, had an amazing time at prom, and now your gorgeous gown is just sitting in your closet begging to be worn again! Here at Faviana we love to get the most out of our favorite outfits, especially when it’s a dress that we spent forever searching for. These days there are a million ways to restyle a prom dress for another event, so we are sharing our top 4 ways for how to get a new look using one of our favorite dresses from the 2017 Spring Collection. Here are 4 Ways to Wear 1 Dress!
Faviana Style S7937 features all of this season’s on-trend details. With lace, off the shoulder straps and a perfectly tasteful slit, this gown is too fabulous to be only worn once! Check out some of our ideas for how to make a few alterations to take this dress from floor length gown, to a beach party-ready crop top.
Faviana originally designed this gown with a floor-length skirt, and it is the perfect boho-chic statement. Being simple but still fabulous, this dress could easily be worn to a wedding, gala, or prom. To take this gown to a more casual event, add simple toned down accessories and hair details, and opt for natural makeup. Try a simple choker necklace or statement earrings to keep the attention on the lace detailing, and not overwhelm the neckline. Flowing curls or a half up half down style would be perfect for a boho hairstyle, and finish with gold or silver bobby pins for a subtle statement.
Midi length dresses are so on-trend for this spring. Take inspiration from the gorgeous Andi Dorfman who rocked a midi version of Faviana Style S7937 to the Faviana Oscars Red Carpet Viewing Party this past month. A midi dress is perfect for a warmer weather event, and allows you to highlight your favorite heels too. To create a midi dress, only a few minor alterations would need to be made to this style, and you could even make the changes yourself at home or a local tailor could do the hemming. You could DIY by hemming it to hit at about mid-calf. Be sure to measure carefully before cutting and don’t forget to be wearing your favorite heels to get just the right length!
If you are looking for a way to sass this style up a bit, try a cocktail length for a night out with your gal pals or for the perfect date night look. We loved this dress so much that Faviana created a cocktail version to add to our new Fall 2017 Collection. A cocktail length can be made flirty or edgy with the addition of a few accessories. To highlight your legs in this style, stick with a simple pump to lengthen your look. Heels aren’t your thing? A pointy toe flat might be the perfect edgy accessory.
The Crop Top
Do you love the off the shoulder lace, but know you won’t have another fancy occasion to wear the dress to? A little trimming here and there can turn this style into the perfect summer crop top! If you don’t have sewing experience, it would be easy to have a tailor crop it to your liking. Show a little or a lot of skin, and pair this crop top with your favorite cut-off denim shorts or with a pair of sleek high-waisted trousers.
Re-wearing a dress is fun and cost efficient, and easier than you think. We love a multi-functional dress, and this style is a perfect example. Repeating an outfit is no longer a fashion faux-pas!
