What is Dressember and why are you seeing my daily posts promoting this December cause? I’ve pledged to take part in Dressember 2017 and will be wearing a dress each day throughout the whole month of December. Read on to see today’s dress outfit post and find out what Dressember is and why I am taking part.
What is Dressember? Dressember is a December cause that involves participants wearing dresses everyday all through December in the hope to raise money for charities supporting human trafficking. Follow my daily outfit posts to see how I style my summer dresses each day and turn them into winter outfits.
Dressember Day 16 Outfit of the Day
Coats can look great with dresses too! A long, tailored coat such as a trench coat would look sophisticated and glamorous worn over a dress. Colourful coats with fun textures and patterns can add an element of interest to an outfit, so don’t worry if your dress outfit calls for you to layer up with your trusty coat! Today’s dress outfit consists of the same striped strap dress I wore on Dressember Day 1, worn with a purple long-sleeve top over it, my purple coat, and navy fringe boots.

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!
