DRESS to Impress

Posted by MeganH on Apr 16, 2009

There is no doubt that you will have your fair share of bridal showers, engagement parties, weddings, etc. to attend over the next few months. Some of these may be your own, and some may be for friends. . .it’s just that time of the year. When you are the bride, you want to look extra special, but you don’t want to break the bank doing it. The cheapest, and easiest outfit you can put on is a dress! It’s one piece, and it’s an outfit all by itself.

The dresses below are all a bright, fun option to wear to any event this spring, they can be dressed up or down, and most of them can be worn to work! The best part is most of these dresses fall under $150, making them affordable options that you can get a lot of wear out of.

Accessorize these dresses with jewelry and shoes that you already own. If you want, throw on a cardigan in a contrasting color. For jewelry it’s all about bold, so throw on a few chunky bangles and that wedding ring of course! When it comes to shoes all of these dresses can be dressed up, or worn more casually. For an afternoon BBQ wear some nice sandals, for a more dressy event throw on a nice pair of heels.

When looking to buy a new dress, make sure that you consider how many times you will be able to wear it. Can you wear it to work? Church? Honeymoon? Anywhere? If the answer is yes, then it is probably a good buy. If you will only wear it for the one event, keep shopping until you find something you can get more use out of.
