Last month there was a New York Times article about convertible clothing and I want to raise my hand here to say, “Yes! I have a bunch of ‘Transformer’ clothing in my closet.” (The term ‘Transformer’ clothing was candidly coined by my gal pal WW whom I went shopping with one time for these clothes.) Even though this type of convertible clothing, specifically the dress, has been around at least since the 1970’s, it is definitely the current rage everywhere right now. And it’s not hard to see why. As the term ‘convertible clothing’ suggests, they can be worn in more than one ways – perfect for traveling! And the fun part is in figuring out how to come up with a different look each time, although sometimes I think an instruction manual would come in super handy. :p These dresses are also very popular because the material used is generally flattering and it’s usually free-size so you can wear it form-fitting or loose. Here’s how I wear one of my convertible dresses, although I haven’t quite figured out all the other ways to wear it yet.
I purchased the dress above from DirtyBling, but there are many other options available. Depending on your budget, you can splurge on a Donna Karan or save by sewing one yourself! Or get one at a reasonable price from any of the stockists below.

I *heart* convertible clothing. Fun, fun, fun-ness! :) If you don’t already own at least ONE convertible dress (that is all you need, really), go out and get one soon because it’s such an economical purchase. One dress, infinite looks!
