What to wear when you have to dress up but don’t really wanna? Why a muumuu of course! I am still obsessed with this fun printed vintage sack-shaped beauty, and instead of wearing it over a bathing suit like I did last time, I decided I could totally dress it up with the mere buckle of a belt. When styling a muumuu for leaving the house purposes, just remember to do these three things:
- Wear a belt. Try wider and thicker versions til you get the right proportion. The longer the muumuu, usually the wider the belt.
- Add some shiny jewelry. I’ve put on some simple gold earrings, but you can also do a big necklace to balance out the bulk of a wider muumuu.
- Heels. This is pretty vital. A little lift will make it look like you’re serious about dressing up.
Next time it’s 3,000 degrees out and you have a baby shower or something to go to, try dressing up your muumuu. It’s okay to try, I SWEAR.
