When it comes to shopping for special occasion dresses like bridesmaid or cheap homecoming dresses, one of the things that I look at is the versatility of the dress. I would not want to splurge money on a dress that will I wear only once - that isn't what smart shopping is about! For today's post, I've teamed up with CocoMelody to introduce their new homecoming dresses 2015 collection that are trendy, timeless and versatile. You can therefore wear these dresses when you're done wearing it to a wedding or homecoming party.
The ability to re-wear your clothes in real life life (aka not a party!) starts upon shopping itself. If possible, choose neutral colors that can be easily mixed and matched with other existing pieces in your closet. The type of fabric on the dress is also a practical consideration. Lace and silk are two types of fabrics that work great with special occasion dresses but can be easily transitioned into office or semi-formal wear too.
What other styling suggestions do you have for re-wearing special occasion dresses?
