Day 2 of Dressember is here! I plan to document my daily outfit choices and provide you with professional styling tricks to make wearing dresses in winter more practical and attainable for you. Despite being a professional fashion stylist, I’m not much of a dress-wearer – or at least not past the beginning of September! Planning 31 days worth of outfits with dresses has certainly pushed my creative ability, but I have my month’s worth of dress looks lined up and ready for Dressember 2017! Here’s Day 2’s Dress of the Day…
Dressember Day 2 Outfit of the Day
Yesterday’s outfit was surprisingly warmer than I had initially anticipated, which was a relief. Both yesterday and today’s dresses are actually summer dresses which before signing up to the Dressember project, I wouldn’t have dreamed of wearing at any point past September! Today, I’ve teamed this pink floral dress with a chunky knitted jumper in fuschia pink, black leggings and a pair of knee-high black boots. The mixture of textures and lengths make this outfit surprisingly warm and easy to wear at this time of the year.
Tip of the Day: Wear thermal leggings under dresses in the winter instead of normal leggings – this makes all the difference!

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!
