How to Wear a Dress as a Shirt

I have tons of cute dresses that I love to wear in the summer.  The problem with these dresses is that they are too short to be work appropriate.  How do I wear them to work and still meet dress code?  I just wear them as a top!  I started doing this during my first 30 for 30 Challenge last fall, and I couldn't believe it had never occurred to me before!  Just grab a work appropriate skirt and a cute belt and you're good to go!

Top (dress): Express
Skirt: Limited
Belt: Limited
Shoes: Jessica Simpson Collection
Aaaaaaand, one more for you :0)

Yeah, I need to try this one day cause I do have a couple of dresses that are too short but will look fantastic as 'blouses'. Anywho, great color block outfit. The colors complement each other really well.

I love how you've changed this cute dress into a top...my problem with doing that is i have a lot of short dresses with too much material/volume at the bottom so if I were to wear a pencil skirt,,,it would look like i have an extra butt...

Love the idea of using a dress as a top! It definitely has helped expand my closet- So has using dresses as skirts or skirts as tops, with a cardi!

LOOOVE the monochromatic, here. Playing with different shades in the same color family is so classic!

I really like your monochromatic outfit. The other advantage of wearing dresses as blouses is that the number of combinations in your wardrobe increases.
