I’ve pledged to wear a dress every single day throughout December because I am participating in Dressember 2017. As part of the project, I have decided to post my daily dress outfits on the blog for you to see how I style each dress to make it suitable for winter wear. Most of the dresses I own are actually summer dresses, so it just goes to show how with a few clever styling tricks you can easily make your clothing wearable all year!
Dressember Day 12 Outfit of the Day
Dressember Day 12’s dress of the day consists of warm, knitted garments which make this outfit both comfortable and cosy! One of the key points I have found so far during this challenge is how the longer length in the dresses keeps me warmer than the plain ‘tops and jeans’ combination! Wearing dresses which come no higher than thigh length, along with a thick jumper or cardigan is making the challenge of wearing dresses each day throughout this winter month far easier than I had imagined. Today I’m wearing this jumper dress, with black leggings, quilted vegan leather boots, a simple black knitted beanie hat, and a long blue scarf.

What is Dressember?
Everyday throughout the month of December, participants are required to wear a dress instead of trousers, jeans, leggings, etc. Among some minorities, dresses represent weakness and inequality, which is why participants of the campaign will be wearing them across the entire 31-day project. We are wearing dresses to raise awareness and collect donations to end modern day slavery and human trafficking. Donations raised help fund life-saving work through the International Justice Mission and A21, who are partnering with the Dressember team for this cause.
How Can I Get Involved in Dressember 2017?
You can become an advocate and get involved by wearing a dress every day of this month. You can support Online Personal Stylist and donate here. You can also share this post and my campaign page to help raise awareness for this campaign. And, as I’m providing daily styling tips this month through my daily dress outfit posts, you can also take these points on board by learning how to revamp items in your wardrobe that you already own. Despite being a professional fashion stylist, I’m a serious advocate for sustainable and cruelty-free fashion, which is one of the reasons this campaign really appealed to me. All this month I will be showing you how you can wear almost any item from your wardrobe at any time of the year. As you will see throughout this project, many of the dresses I plan to wear are actually from my summer wardrobe! With the help of some clever styling tricks, a dose of creativity, and strategic layering tactics, it is possible to transfer many of your garments between contrasting seasons!
