Darlings in Dresses: How to Take on Dressember

Linnea White

This month, Megan and I are wearing dresses for 31 days as part of the Dressember movement. We're honored (and really, really excited) to stand with women all over the world for this incredible cause. We love Dressember so much, we decided to show a little #dressember style by featuring outfits from our shop! See how we each styled dresses for Dressember - a month of dresses to raise support and awareness to reclaim freedom, dignity, and femininity for the victims of human trafficking. Join us by donating to the cause, or show us your own #darlingsindresses style on Instagram!

How to Dressember

On Linnea

For an every day, Winter look, Linnea styled this vibrant J. Crew wool shift dress (with pockets!!!) with navy tights and oxford heels - and a snazzy top knot - for a mod-inspired style. This dress can be worn dressed up (add some sparkle and heels) for the holidays, or dressed down with flats or boots and a cozy sweater or coat for colder weather. Not only is it classy and timeless, but it's comfortable - #winning.

On Megan

For a boho-inspired look, Megan rocked a Free People tunic dress and kept the accessories minimal - let the a dress like this one do the talking! This dress can easily be worn over tights or even jeans, with heels or boots. Throw an ankle-grazing coatigan over this tunic and a chunky knit scarf for a boho-chic wintry look.

Darlings in Dresses: Support Dressember

Linnea White

The heart of Dressember is dignity for all women. The heart of Dressember is freedom - that every woman has the right to live a vibrant and autonomous life.

Dressember is a collaborative movement utilizing fashion and creativity to advocate for the freedom and restoration of women. It began as a style challenge, and in just four years, it became a fundraising campaign opposing the worldwide trafficking and exploitation of women. It's bigger than just a dress. It's about reclaiming femininity, dignity, and true beauty.

Darlings in Dresses: Why We're Doing It

Megan and I are so excited for this cause, this campaign, and a whole month of wearing dresses! God has given us hearts for women, and it's evident in the mission of this blog and the mission of our boutique.

Jesus came to restore ALL things. Jesus came to make ALL things new. Jesus restored us. God transformed our perspectives on clothing, body image, and true beauty over the past years. He transformed the way we dress, teaching us to embrace modesty, style, and femininity in a new way. He taught us the power of women connecting around style, dignity, and our identity in Christ.

We're participating in Dressember because we believe in the collective voice of justice it declares. We believe God is working in and through us to share His redeeming and restoring love to women through fashion. And yes, we also happen to love wearing dresses.

Let's dress for the restoration of dignity for all women. Because it's a light of Christ's love in a dark world.

The 31 Days of Dresses Rules

Can it only be a dress? Yes. Do you need to wear a dress at all times (aka to the gym or work)? If your daily activities require you do not wear a dress, then, no, you do not need to wear a dress. But whenever you get to choose what you wear, pick up that dress!

Have FUN. Get creative. Feel beautifully feminine. Twirl. Dance. Wear red lipstick. Get on your social media and join our movement with #darlingsindresses. Donate to our team page, and give back this holiday season in a new way.
