While I’d love to use holiday parties as an excuse to shop, who has the money to buy a new outfit for every occasion? Not this girl! Instead, choose a versatile dress that you can make fancy or casual and use it all season long.

Check out the outfits I built around this red ModCloth dress:

One Dress, 3 Parties: Office Editiondress: ModCloth; earrings: Marc by Marc Jacobs; necklace: Betsey Johnson
cardigan: Zara; bag: Cole Haan; shoes: SoYouShoes; tights: Wolford

One Dress Three Parties: Secret Santa Editiondress: ModCloth; scarf: Simply Vera Vera Wang; pants: American Eagle
cardigan: Mango; bracelet: Juicy Couture; shoes: TOMS

One Dress Three Parties: New Year's Eve Editiondress: ModCloth; earrings: Kate Spade; necklace: Coast; jacket: ModCloth
tights: Commando; clutch: Lulu Townsend; nail polish: OPI; shoes: Bakers

They couldn’t be more different, right? If you pair one of your favorite staples with different combinations of accessories, no one will be the wiser!

Do you plan on using the same dress for different parties this holiday season?
