In this edition of Make-Over Monday we will actually be making “under” a look. January Skyy wanted to show readers that with the right additions, u can turn a dressy outfit into something that could be worn to multiple places. Our model’s before look consists of a one shoulder, accordion pleated dress. This dress should only be worn to upscale venues. To make under this look, we simply added a pair of white jeans. White jeans are a versatile item every woman should have in her closet. White jeans can be dressed up or down, so adding them was a sure win. We then shortened the length of the dress, so it would be in proportion to the jeans. There are a few ways to shorten dresses. The first way to shorten a dress is by taking the dress to your seamstress and askin them to reduce the length. Taking your dress to a seamstress is a permanent change, that may cost a few dollars, but it is worth it. Another way to shorten the length of a dress is by pinning the dress up or twirling it into a cute design, as seen in the after picture. After shortening the length of the dress, your outfit is instantly dressed down. You can then add a pair of heels to maintain a dressy feel, and¬†accessorize¬†as you wish. If you have a similar dress, follow the above steps and you too will be able to make “under” your look.
