Re-wear your Dress: Mom Edition
When shopping for a special occasion dress in particular for your son or daughter’s wedding, the question “Can I wear this again?” typically comes up. With our expertise regardless of the style, we say yes! There are opportunities to re-wear that formal gown that you bought for only one (but very important!) day.
Color is one thing to consider when initially shopping for your dress. Will you wear neutral or jewel tones? Or is the bride looking for you to wear a more specific color like periwinkle or blush? Either way, there are options to re-wear your dress! If you go with more of a neutral or darker jewel tone you are more likely to be able to wear it again as a guest to another wedding, or an event or even a night out. The brighter or more specific colors would be great to wear on a cruise or take with you on vacation. Of course, depending on the event or wedding some colors may be just as appropriate!
If the dress you bought for your son/daughter’s wedding is formal and floor length, then most of the time these dresses are able to be hemmed knee length. This gives you plenty of options to re-wear! You could wear it again for an anniversary dinner, your other child’s rehearsal dinner, or even any of the options listed above. Altering a dress can give it a more casual feel, making it easier to wear again.
We carry many designers that specialize in two or three piece ensembles; this makes it easy to re-wear! You can pair the tops with different skirts or pants for any special occasion. The jackets are also great to dress up with a pair of denim jeans; going from work to an evening out easily! If you bought a three piece ensemble, the skirts are easy to wear with a solid blouse. Take off the jacket and add strappy heels for a fun look.
Always keep an open mind while shopping for your next event. You will be surprised in how versatile some dresses can be. We’re excited for you to come in and shop for your next event!
