Laundry On Sundaes

Every beginning is only a sequel, after all, and the book of events is always open halfway through.

“You can also wear it as a shirt!” Said the Chinese saleslady desperately trying to get me to buy the white and green floral skirt I was looking at. I laughed it off then, thinking that it was just a last ditch effort to get my business. At any rate, I bought the skirt, and the saleslady’s comment was long forgotten. That is, until now.

As it turns out, the lady was right. With a little creativity, you actually CAN wear a skirt as a dress. This is how it’s done.

This will work with almost any skirt that is at least knee length and has an elastic waistband. Just pull it up to your chest and throw on a belt, pair with leggings or skinny jeans, and you’ve got an entirely new look out of the same garment. Here’s another one of my skirts worn this way:

Oh, and also, a wide elastic belt is probably the best accessory ever.
