One Target Dress Worn Seven Ways

1 Dress Worn 7 Ways

In this post, I will show how you can invest twenty bucks into buying one basic dress and then wear it seven different ways.

I wish all my clothes were this versatile.

I’ll also be adding this to The Pleated Poppy’s What I Wore Wednesday.

Style #1

Black & White Striped Dress from Target

I bought this Target dress back in September.  I checked the store’s website and it is no longer available, however, these black and white striped dresses are in just about every store I go into.  You can find them at almost every price point.

I do not spend a lot of money on trendy pieces of clothes, because let’s face it, this dress will be out of style soon.

Thankfully with stores like Target and Old Navy, you can buy a trendy dress for $20-$30 dollars and wear it out.

Style #2

striped dress with jacket and boots

In this style, I paired my basic dress with black tights, heeled boots, and a jacket.  I would wear this outfit to work.  I think it’s office acceptable and still in-style.

The jacket is Kohl’s, but I’ve had it two days fewer than forever, so I cannot provide a link for you.  Same with these boots.

A few years ago, I wore this jacket constantly, but I had to dust off the shoulders for this picture.  I think I just got tired of it.

Style #3

black & white striped Target dress with a blue Chambray shirt

I simply put a Chambray shirt over the dress.  I might try this look with brown boots, but I was changing quicker than Superman between shots, so there wasn’t much time to think.

My Chambray shirt is a hand-me-down, but you can find one anywhere.  They are popular right now.  Maybe you are even lucky enough to have one left over from the 80’s.

Kidding.  Just kidding.

Style #4

striped dress with mustard sweater and colorful necklace

This is one of my favorite ways to wear this dress.  I think it’s the mustard sweater – I just love it!

Sweater: Target, Necklace: I haven’t got a clue. Sorry.

Style 5

Striped Dress with Graphic Owl Sweater

This is definitely a perfect way to wear this for winter.

I switched out the tights for thicker leggings (GAP) and added my favorite owl sweater from Kohl’s.

Style #6

striped dress with black vest and boots

If I didn’t hate vests, I might like this outfit.

The vest is a hand-me-down, but I honestly do not wear it.  I do think this makes a perfectly acceptable outfit though.  It looks fine together.

Style #7

striped dress with denim jack and scarf

Ok friends, I hate this look.  Hate it!  But in the spirit of full disclosure, I decided to include it.

It’s the scarf that really isn’t working.  Ok, it’s the jacket too.  Maybe if the jacket were more fitted and a little longer, it might work, but this does not work.  The scarf is a circle scarf, but it looked even worse as a circle with this jacket.

Well, you win some, you lose some.  The good news is, there are six other styles.

Denim Jack: Goodwill, Scarf: Kohl’s.

    Well, I just love this post because I have the same dress! I remember you telling me that you had it – it looks awesome on you! It has actually surprised me how little I wear it… I think this post was good motivation for me! Thanks!

    Love this, I might have to steal this idea just to get more creative with some of my dresses. My favorite is the one with the mustard color sweater. I love the pop of color and the necklace in that one.

    What a great post!
    I really like the version with the vest! And I agree about the denim jacket/scarf combo. Though I love wearing outfits like that, that particular one didn’t work!

  5. says

    That dress is darling and so flattering on you. I love the different ways you styled it. I think the yellow cardi and colorful necklace might be my favorite though. Thanks for sharing this great wardrobe staple! Gotta love Target! 😉

    You are so super cute!!I love #7 I totally think it works! I also love #4 and #6.

    I saw a commercial last night and there were all sorts of printed, colorful pants and it made me think of you. :)

    OMG you are adorable. and that last outfit TOTALLY works. I like the vest one too. I’m not so much a fan of the owl sweater over the dress… although the sweater is adorbs. I think you look amazing in all of them, and I could have NEVER found 7 looks for one dress. YOU GO!

  8. says

    You are a woman of many talents! Funnily enough, I like the last one best. You’re so lucky you can wear horizontal stripes – I would look like the side of a house – ha!

    Okay, you know what? I wouldn’t mind one bit if you decided to ship that owl sweater to me. 😉 I love it! I really like the mustard with the stripes, too!

      Well, to be honest, I’ve had this dress since September and I generally only wear it one way. It wasn’t until last week that I got to thinking I should find more ways to wear it. So, I’m not that smart! Or, maybe it just takes me a while. 😉

      Really? You wouldn’t have thought chambray?? Yay! I’m proud of myself now. 😉 Honestly, I only thought of it because I see other bloggers wearing chambray with EVERYTHING. I actually wore it like that last Saturday.

      Thanks Stacey. I honestly never wear the dress like #1. I feel stark naked. It’s so form-fitting and I’m not used to it. So, I feel too self-conscious to wear it to Walmart, but I don’t feel too self-conscious to plaster it across the internet. Go figure. My mind works in mysterious (think crazy) ways. :-)

    Liked them all. I think the last one would have done better if the dress were just one shade through, but the individual items go well together and looks like a look I would wear! :)
