One easy way to save money and maximize your wardrobe is to wear your clothing in unexpected ways and make them work double duty! This means shorts aren’t just for summer and skirts aren’t just for wearing only as skirts either. In this post, I’ll show you a quick style hack and give you easy tips on how to wear a skirt as a dress.
How to Wear a Skirt as a Dress

First, here’s an example of a perfectly chic way to wear a skirt as well, a skirt!
Now all you have to do is pull your skirt up and tie a cardigan over it to make it into a skirt!
Though this specific look is a bit more summery, you can make it work for fall/winter by adding tights or leggings underneath and/or adding boots as well as adding a layer such as a cardigan or a jacket. Get more summer to fall outfit tips like that here.
I find that tying something over the skirt helps to hide any unwanted bulges, as well as cinch in your waist if you’re transforming a flowy maxi skirt.
Longer/maxi skirts work best, but other styles can work too! Check out this post to see how I wore a bodycon skirt as both a skirt and a dress.
Happy wardrobe maximizing!
