How To Wear One Dress Three Ways For Multiple Weddings

We recently came across an article on Cupcakes and Cashmere, where two women decide to wear one dress for a number of weddings they will be attending this year. You may be wondering why, but for those that are familiar with being guests to several weddings within a year, you can understand the cost and underlying pressure to never repeat a dress. Especially in today’s world of social media, it’s taboo to wear and post yourself in the same outfit twice.

But for Leslie and Kelly, they were up for the challenge. They've each decided to buy one dress and wear it multiple ways. The key here is investing in a dress that's super-flattering, but not necessarily incredibly memorable, then dressing it up with different hair, makeup, jewelry, and accessories. They promise no one will notice, on Instagram or in person, that they wore the same dress. And as a result, it will end up saving them thousands of dollars!

Leslie: Black Halo Two Piece Dress

Cost: $345

Leslie’s main concern was comfort. So she decided to go with a dress that she didn’t have to worry about pulling up a straps or sweating through. She went with a versatile black two piece dress that could take her from a black tie wedding to a cabin in Yosemite. See her full looks including makeup, hair and accessories here.

Kelly: Bardot Kristen Flounce Dress

Cost: $119

Kelly chose to go with a navy flounce dress since she believes navy isn’t a memorable color. She compensates lack of color with a flirty flounce hem to show that she is ready to party! Aside from the weddings she will be attending, Kelly also plans on wearing this dress to work and other social events as well to really make this dress worth every penny. She’ll be taking her looks from a a semi-formal seaside wedding in Maine, Palm Springs wedding and an  opera house in St. Louis. See her full variations here.
