Rachel Yeomans – Second City Style Magazine
This past Sunday, a good friend of mine and I were gallivanting back and forth from fitting rooms to clothing racks, parading around in multiple outfits asking one another our opinions and what colors worked best with our skin tones. A typical weekend shopping excursion — the only difference between this spree and many others previous, was that each outfit might have been different, but both my friend and I only brought one piece of clothing into the fitting room. That day, in American Apparel, we each spent $36 dollars on one garment we could wear 15 different ways. We discovered the convertible dress.
Out of all the clothing occupying my closet at a given time, among them there is always a single seasonal staple I wear to the point of exhaustion, be it a denim blazer, a gaucho suit or a pair of peep-toes. In the summer, it’s that one dress that always looks fabulous and seems to make even the accompanied accessories more fashionable. And since the convertible dress can play the role of that special garment in so many different ways, it not only can be the most versatile piece of the season, but also the most economical.
