June Dresses® is a 30-day journey through your wardrobe.
As with any journey, some days will be better than others. Here are some ideas for the days you just can’t figure out what to wear.
Remix Your Dresses
Read our One Dress, Five Looks tips for how to wear a single dress multiple times. By using accessories and a little bit of creative styling you can wear the same dress or skirt in vastly different ways. Need additional inspiration? Fashion blogger, Kasmira Kit, is a master at remixing outfits. Check out What I Wore 2day for examples.
Thrift stores are good for more than just Halloween costumes, ugly Christmas sweaters and the local rodeo. If you put in a little time to search the racks, you can find some gem garments that are new to you and usually available for a bargain price. Canadian fashion blogger, Jentine, and her friends show off their thrift find on a regular basis.
Team up with a fellow June Dresses participant and swap dresses throughout the month; raid a box of clothes you, a friend or family member have tucked away in storage; or host a dress swap party with your friends as a fun way to refresh your wardrobe.
Turn Obstacles into Opportunities
Sometimes it can be difficult to find the right dress or skirt for particular circumstances (the weather, workplace dress code, travel, etc…), but we still challenge you to embrace these obstacles and show off your creativity by finding an innovative way to make it work. See these situations less as obstacles and more as opportunities… Can you style your rain jacket as a dress?
Once the Month is Over
June Dresses is a great excuse to clean out your closet. As you make peace with your wardrobe, keep track of what you didn’t wear. If you have items in your closet that didn’t make the cut throughout the month, the likelihood of you ever wearing those pieces again is low. Why not make space by donating those items to local charities like Suit Yourself, WINS or the Walk-In Closet as another way of helping women in need? The Canada Helps website is a great search tool to find local women-focused charities in your area.
