Got a few more holiday parties to attend? So do we! Local bloggers Jessica and Lauren got us inspired with their holiday looks. There is still time to add a new dress to the mix. Just because you buy a new dress for the holidays doesn't mean you can't wear it well into the spring and summer. Here are three dresses you can wear two ways, now and later...


black dress

You can never have too many little black dresses. This strappy, midi number will stand out from your collection. The shoulder cutouts, back keyhole button closure, and side slit will all come together to create a sexy, yet sophisticated look.

Where it Now: Rock this dress to a holiday party or a fancy affair with sparkly heels, a faux fur coat, and a fun updo!

Where it Later: Throw on your favorite jean jacket and fun flat sandals to wear this to a summer barbeque. If it's extra sunny, find the closest havanna hat and never take it off.

green cold shoulder dress

Your shoulders will be happy to Bare It All in this adorable green shift dress. The loose fit will flatter any frame, any time of year. The ruffle detail is the icing on top for a truly darling look. 

Wear it now: If you're thinking Christmas tree when you look at this dress, so are we! Wear this holiday color with tall suede boots, a leather jacket, and statement earrings for a fun winter night out. 

Wear it later: Wrap a light patterned scarf around your neck and slip on your favorite neutral wedges for a spring friendly look.

grey dress

This gray mock neck dress is soft and sweet--everything we love about wearing dresses! The baby doll shape takes us back to the 90s, yet still provides flattering shape and shows off your legs. 

Wear it now: Find your funkiest statement necklace and your favorite party shoes. Roll on a bright lip stick and throw on a heavy coat for party hopping in this dress. Let your legs do all the talking. 

Wear it later: For a day of errands, pull on a pair of flat boots and leather choker. You'll be chic and comfortable all day long!
