Little Red Dress 2 Ways

FullSizeRender-6Little black dresses are so practical, but also pretty boring, and little white dresses are soooooooo last year – so today we’re talking about red hot dresses sure to knock anyone’s socks right off, and styling my current fav two ways!      

I found this dress online during a shop bop sale and immediately added it to cart because its CA-UTE! But .. when I got it on it gave me no shape and did nothing for this body-ody-ody. UGH! SO I turned to my go to trick, a big black belt!

A statement belt can save 70% of shapeless dresses, sometimes it won’t wok but for the most part you can get away with unflattering silhouettes with a bit of a nip & a tuck. This isn’t the first time a bold belt has come to my rescue, I shared how it saved me in the denim department last week on the blog (click here to read the post).
