Transform your Herve Leger Dress into a Top without Alterations

By Bebefuzz

Get more mileage out of your gorgeous Herve Leger dresses. With this trick, many Herve Leger dresses can be transformed into a top. This instantly made my Herve Leger Quinn dress more versatile and casual. This tutorial works with low-waisted skirts and many low-waisted skorts.

how to wear herve leger dress as casual top

With two folds, the beautiful Herve Leger Quinn dress appears to be a top instead of a dress. The skort is pulled up in between the two folds. Think of when you tuck in a shirt and then pull a little out. That's how the dress is, except you pull out a lot and fold and flatten the excess over the top of the skirt. By doing this, the dress becomes very short, and the shortened hemline is covered by the skirt or skort.

The top fold should occur at the top of the hip, and the second fold should be where you want the top to appear to end. To avoid bulk at the waistline, don't start the folding too high. This trick does not work with all Herve Leger dresses. In order for a Herve Leger dress to look right with this technique, it must be short, have a simple design with no trim or embellishments on the bottom half, and be fitted throughout.

This solution doesn't require any alterations to the dress whatsoever, so it can be worn as a dress or a top at any time.

Noticed my sparkly shoes? My DIY strassed Christian Louboutin heels never fail in garnering compliments and interest. And, wearing them brings me so much enjoyment. Bright twinkling shoes is something that a lot of women can appreciate. Notice how 2 great tales, Cinderella and The Wizard of Oz, both revolve around a girl and her sparkly shoes?

Even though my previous two pairs (AB crystal Christian Louboutin & Vitrail crystal Christian Louboutin) took so long to create, I'm planning my third strassed Christian Louboutins. This time it will be a pair of versatile ballet flats. They're currently at the cobblers to be vibramed. I cannot wait until I have the vibramed shoes and crystals in hand! A pretty red sole with sparkles. Who can resist?
