Today I want to share 3 ways that you can wear a dress after it’s been shrunk in the dryer. This dress below was from my fill-a-bag sale at Goodwill a while ago. After I picked out a few cute things that I wanted, I just started stuffing clothes in the bag without trying them on. I picked out this striped dress and when I tried it on at home, I realized that someone must have shrunk it in the dryer and ended up giving it away. Well, I always believe that someone’s trash can be someone else’s treasure, and since the dress was basically free, I wanted to get some use out of it. Here are 3 ways that I like to wear my shorter dresses.
2.) Wear it with leggings. Wearing this dress as a tunic with leggings gives it a more casual feel. I love throwing on leggings and boots under a dress for work. It always gives the appearance that I dressed up, but really I feel like I’m wearing pajamas.
3.) Risk it and wear it on its own. Sometimes in the summertime, it gets so hot that I don’t care how short my dress is. If you do wear a short dress, I recommend wearing it with flat shoes. I also like to wear some shorts under my shorter dresses. What I do is take an old pair of leggings that I never wear and cut them to wear as bike shorts under my dresses. This is a great trick for moms with little ones and definitely teachers, specially preschool teachers!
