I have to admit, I was a bit surprised when Weddington Way asked me to re-style one of their dresses from their chiffon bridesmaid collection for a fun summer night out. As you can see on my blog, I am not a huge fan of dresses in general. I have very few in my wardrobe, so to say that re-styling a dress isn’t exactly my forte would be fairly accurate. But, I am always up for a challenge and I felt like this was a good one that I was happy to take on.
Weddington Way sent me a selection of dresses to choose from (although on their website, each dress comes in a multitude of colors). I didn’t want to be swayed by color because most women actually choose color for their bridesmaid dresses, so I thought I would say true to the challenge (of course by default, I would choose the black dress). I ended up choosing this beautiful halter dress (which happens to come in 90 colors. Yes, I said 90!), named After Six:
And some great thought, I came up with this set:
I decided to style the dress with pieces that I’m loving right now including the white leather vest. I actually purchased one recently from the Club Monaco sale (which has yet to be seen on this blog), and I’m obsessed with it despite the fact that we are going through a pretty significant heat wave right now. I love this particular vest because of the way it looks zipped up so that you can only see the skirt exposed.
I also went with a nude flat gladiator sandal. It just seems practical and if I’m trying to style a long dress casually, I opt for a flat sandal as a high heel can instantly turn a maxi dress into something super-fancy which is what we’re trying to avoid here! I hope you enjoyed my own edgy spin on how to style this chiffon bridesmaid dress. How would you style this dress?
