I mentioned a couple of months ago about the versatility of this Alexander Wang dress. The not so casual sheerness of the design makes it difficult to wear for day to day activities. Not to worry - I normally throw on a slouchy well worn knitwear and I end up having a day worthy outfit that is still true to my style while being all so comfortable. I'm sure this little trick works with most dresses. I cannot say I have experience with other dress styles because this is the only dress I have, bare the more formal pieces. Also, a slight flaw is that come Summer this will not be the best option, unless you like the sweaty look, right!? So, I normally wear this combination during late Autumn and early Spring.
Given my lack of dresses/I kind of stick to one dress style feel free to add in your opinion of how you make a 'not so casual' dress into being daywear appropriate!
Side note - this is the last of the 'Borrowing from him - the knitwear' post. However, the next 'Borrowing from him...' will be up soon.
