Follow my Dressember outfit journey in dresses to see how I create a new dress look each day to make them both wearable and practical for the cold December weather.
Dressember Outfit of the Day 23
Ok, so I may be a little late to the party here, but amidst the usual December mayhem, I’ve just realised that my participation in the Dressember challenge will mean me wearing a dress on Christmas Day. I’m sure that many of you reading this do wear dresses on Christmas Day. I’m the opposite – Christmas is a day of stylish loungewear or vegan cashmere teamed with indigo jeans, with most of my ‘getting ready’ time going into perfecting my make-up for the special day. While I have a think what dress will serve well for Dressember Day 25, let me walk you through today’s look.
Today I decided to team my swap my comfy jumpers and cardigans for my vegan leather jacket. I’m wearing the same black dress as yesterday, with my favourite cross-body black fringe bag, leggings, and cowboy-style ankle boots. I was feeling something cool and edgy this morning before we dive into the festivities over the next few days!

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!
