What’s the best part about summer fashion? You can literally wear a dress every day of the week! If you’ve got a good crop of dresses but are totally bored of them, here are 10 ways to transform them into brand new duds.
1. Shoulder-less Shirt Dress: Take an oversized shirt and turn it into a hot little shirt dress, shoulders optional. This is also a fun hack for a shirt dress you already have. (via Brit + Co.)
2. Hand Stamped Pony Dress: Pep up any plain dress with custom stamps and fabric paint. (via A Beautiful Mess)
3. Cutout Black Maxi: We know summer just started yesterday but this might already be our favorite hack of the season. (via Brit + Co.)
