Currently Lusting After: Convertible Dresses

I’ve noticed that convertible dresses seem to be popping up in more and more places lately, and as I’m broke as broke can be, instead of buying one I’m going to share them with you!

I first noticed convertible dresses on Tali’s blog, Glossy’s Wardrobe. She has the “Deto” dress (both mini and maxi versions) from JoinClothes, and the jersey fabric looks heavy and good quality. They come in a wide range of colours, not just the ones you see below.

The maxi Deto dress (€108, approx. AUD $148) would work well day or night:


 

But the mini Deto dress (€90, approx. AUD $124) would be great as something to throw on during the day:

But then there’s the Etsy convertible dress, which looks gorgeous too! Check out these creations from Coralie Beatrix:

Long Octopus Convertible Wrap Gown in Graphite ($98.99):

Octopus Convertible Wrap Gown in Queensland Rosewater ($98.99):

Octopus Convertible Wrap Gown in Lily of the Valley ($124.99):

Octopus Convertible Wrap Gown (Knee Length) in Ship’s Harbour Light Grey ($79.99):

Octopus Convertible Wrap Gown in Scorpion Bay Cobalt Blue ($98.99):

These colours and styles are gorgeous! They would be so good for taking on holiday, and just made for summer! I’m hoping that one of these will transform me into a Hawaiian goddess too, but we’ll see.

For further convertible dress style ideas, check out Style On The Couch as she creates three different looks with her Von Vonni dress (here, here, and here). Unfortunately it’s not available here in Oz, but still so pretty!

    Oh, I love them all! Especially the first one (looks 3 and 4 are gorgeous).

  2. Dempeaux says:

    @Angela I love the colour of the first one too! For some reason I find the whole convertible dress thing so appealing. Perhaps because there’s no ironing involved? ;)

    OMG why have I not heard about convertible dresses before? These are fabulous! Going on Etsy and eBay right now to nab me some of these dresses. Thanks Sarah!

  4. Dempeaux says:

    @Lilit This makes me very happy! Have fun! :D

  5. Gosh, aren’t they gorgeous? So summery looking too.

    @Megan They would sit really beautifully on you :)

    I love the rich cobalt colour of the last one! These dresses seem like they would be value for money, since you can style them in so many ways, plus they would be perfect to take on a holiday!

  10. Dempeaux says:

    @ki Me too! I love jewel tones. So good for travel!

  11. Ah you are so sweet! It’s funny because I even call my own convertible dress by the nickname of the octopus dress because of the long fabric that you need to tie around again and again :-) )
    Thanks for the mention in this post – I do take that Von Vonni dress everywhere with me…. I do really like the first one you featured here though, I’m off to check it out!

    @StyleOnTheCouch Haha! Clearly the nickname has caught on! ;) I want one for travelling!

  13. A little update, tonight I attended a preview of a range of maternity wear (um for the blog, I am not pregnant!) and they had convertible dresses in the range too! They are taking over the world….

    @StyleOnTheCouch No way! They would make excellent materinty wear! So chic, and you can get so many ‘styles’ out of them. Thanks for the update! :)

    I love it layered with that petticoat (slip). I love that show of little ruffle!

  16. Dempeaux says:

    @Olivia Me too! That look is so gorgeous and feminine! :)
