One of the advantages of corona, yes there are even a few advantages to it, is that I have only bought a few new clothes the last couple of months. (I did buy pre loved like this short dress though.) I wondered why that was. I don’t really feel like buying new things because you don’t go out to have lunch, dinner, do something with friends, etc that much right. Huh, but do I only buy clothes to show others? Apparently. Mm, I am a bit disappointed with myself.
When to wear this short dress
It is a bit different of course. See, I did search for timeless pre loved clothes. If I were to order something new from Zara, for example, I would probably like it less by the time we go out. Because we can go to restaurants and all, but that’s about it. We don’t go to museas, no cinemas, no theaters, and not so much going out for lunch and dinner as we used to do. I still love fast fashion, can’t help myself there, but it also gets boring very quickly. At least the trendy items do, the more timeless ones not of course. And for that I find new clothes too expensive to buy now. Does that make any sense at all?
How to make a short dress work for you
This gorgeous black and white dress is actually too short for me. I am going to look more critically at my outfits because I have not been happy with them lately. So when I got this dress I thought, shit it’s too short. But I loved the dress so much. I just had to make it work. I am really in love with this reverse print. This Diane von Furstenberg dress has that too. I think that’s great. I get a kick out of such a print. If you are new here you will probably think, she is not good in her head ……
So the dress is too short. And how are we going to style it so that it looks good? With a legging underneath! But then a fake leather legging to make the look a bit cooler. Not a cotton one, that would look frumpy. I decided on wearing my patent leather ones. For a little contrast. And then a cool military jacket over it! And the lack of length has been resolved. It works! But only with heels, ankle boots could work to if it would be cooler.
So, if you are not happy with your outfit, make it work!
Shop the short dress look!
Would really appreciate it if you would share my photos on Pinterest.
