What to Wear for Family Dinner This Weekend (PS: You Already Own It)

Party dresses are in heavy rotation this time of year, and with one styling trick, your favorite strapless mini can transform into a daytime-appropriate look. The solution is straightforward and only requires a wardrobe staple you already own.

Just pick a complementary pullover sweater that's on the thin side and layer it beneath the dress to create a new, two-piece ensemble. The key is choosing a sweater that's solid to create proper balance and give off a more polished look. We've seen this seen this outfit formula in play with sleek button-down shirts, but a cozy pullover is far winter-friendlier and relaxed. The unexpected combination makes for a chic look that can go from day to night and even dinner with the parents.
