Follow my Dressember 2017 journey to see how I style my dresses each day to make them both wearable and practical for the cold December weather.
Dressember Day 22 Outfit of the Day
I am getting to that point where I am beginning to establish favourite dress looks. Over the last year I’ve found that when it comes to dresses, you can’t beat good old black and white – together or separately. Additionally, I am discovering how many of my winter jumpers that 4 months ago I would have never imagined wearing with the summer dresses I was wearing back then, look great with dresses! I’ve dug out my faux letterman jacket (purchased from a fashion store a few years ago, not earned at school I’m afraid), and I am wearing it with my long black sleeveless dress, winter leggings, and midnight blue tassel ankle boots. These tassel boots are a great addition to any outfit if you want to add a little interest without adding a shocking colour or changing your colour theme!

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!
