Edgy Formal

Our weather has been a bit up an down, so for a spring night when the temperatures have dropped, I love the idea of pairing this maxi dress with a moto jacket. 

Dress:  The Limited

The satiny fabric of this dress instantly makes me think of wearing it for formal occasions, but by pairing it with a moto jacket, the dress becomes more casual and a little cooler.

Jacket:  Torrid (Available here)
Earrings:  The Limited
Glasses:  c/o Firmoo.com (Available here)

Clutch:  The Limited

I paired the dress with some simple dangly earrings, a jade bracelet (one of my amazing Mother’s Day gifts from my honey), and a black clutch with tons of gold hardware.

Bracelet:  Vintage (gift)
Ring:  Francesca’s

The overall effect is a little edgy but also a little feminine and romantic.

Do you dress down fancier pieces in your wardrobe to get more wear out of them? What are some ways you do it?
