Dressing up always feels great, but at times it can also feel really expensive, especially during a packed holiday party season. To get the most style and wearability for your buck, look for a dress that can be worn several ways, just by adding layers and accessories. A strapless silhouette in a solid hue makes for an easy and versatile base that pairs easily with other items in your wardrobe, while looking different each time you wear it. This silk crepe dress from Rebecca Taylor is as versatile as it gets without having to go with the traditional little black dress. The feminine hue and breezy volume lend a soft and romantic vibe, while the subtle boning and structured bodice make for an alluring and sexy frock. Now that you've got your base, check out five very different ways you can style it this holiday season.
