In the world of fashion there is one phrase that is more overused than any other:  “You can dress it up or you can dress it down.”

Perhaps we all love this phrase because when it comes to purchasing out a dress, or a pair of shoes, or even a handbag, that simple fact is a determining factor of whether or not we pull out our Visa.  How many places can I wear this? Can I wear it to work? Can I wear it on a date? Is it year round?

And I’m sure to many of yalls surprise, I am going to say that an Herve Leger dress fits the bill in  most of these categories.

“But Courtney, wait! You are telling me that a bandage dress can go from day to night, casual to dressy, summer to winter?!”

Yes, ladies….I am.  Still don’t believe me? Well, thanks to the folks over at The Outnet, I am going to be showing yall all week how to work that sexy form fitting dress into your wardrobe….and not to mention, turn a few heads in the process. And if that’s not enough to convince you, The Outnet is even giving away an Herve Leger dress to one lucky reader (yes, you read that correctly!) so that she can see all the ways to style it herself! Good Luck!

  • Lori Beth Glover

    Hi! I’m in love with this beauty! I’d pair it with a camo style cargo jacket with leather sleeves tapered in to be extra slim fitting, a slouchy grey beanie and menswear inspired gold loafers with a cheetah print thin belt pulling it together for day. For evening I would wear a caged bootie in nude, smoky eye and tons of interesting and locally made dainty gold jewels. By letting your natural beauty and curves stand out but adding some edge with the shoe I think it would balance out this lovely dress.

  • Lynn

    Wow! Love this dress and your choice of a military jacket to keep it casual! I style this GORGEOUS dress with black suede booties, a black moto jacket and hair down for day.

  • Emily Fogarty

    Styling it can work in different ways, I’d love to play with some kind of flat bootie as a more casual option!! And of course, jewelry makes all the difference, my personal opinion…layer, layer, layer, regardless of the time of day! Duh.

  • Ruth Ann Beagle

    As we know, teachers LOVE jean jackets, so I would love to try a dress with a jean jacket during the day, then pair it with a chic blazer for night time. Love your blog, girl!

  • Leah W

    This would be perfect for my birthday dress option in Vegas this fall with some jewel tone accessories or tons of gold layers.

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  • Kelsey

    Love bandage dresses, so flattering on everyone! For day to night I would style one with a blazer and classic heels for work, then take off the jacket, add some sky high strappy sandals and statement earrings with a bold lip to take it into night!

    I love how you styled it casually! Another cute way would be a white or creme herve dress with a black leather jacket and booties for a more edgy but not too dressy of a look.

  • Kathryn Hargrove

    I would pair it with some nice sandals and a light jacket for day and some crazy peeptoes for night!

  • Molly

    That dress looks incredible on you! I think the classic and sexy elegance of a Herve would look SICK with good-and-dirtied converse and a slouchy white tee tied up at the waist!

  • Jennifer Rand

    Love both of your looks, Courtney! The color of the dress is amaze too! If I won I’d style mine with an oversized or off the shoulder sweater with sexy boots for more of a casual look. Then for a dressier look I’d pair it with some hot pointy toe heels and a fun jacket– maybe a vintage sequin or an edgy leather moto jacket.

    Thanks for the chance!


  • Kate

    I am loving that dress! The color is perfect for the fall season and I think will transition seamlessly into winter. I’m interested to see you style in for a work environment! I’m thinking I’d wear it with a killer pair of black pumps and a leather jacket for a night out! xo

  • Olivia K

    Amazing giveaway! Love the way you have it styled for daytime, I’d just wear it with simple booties and a scarf for day and for night just statement heels!

  • Jacinda C.

    Love your post and this fab giveaway!

    For day, I would layer with a blazer (3/4 length sleeves) and spiky heels (for a little bit of an edge) and a classic tote. For evening, I would toss the blazer and jazz up the look with statement earrings, some fierce arm candy, a metallic clutch and ankle lace up open-toe booties!

    Fingers crossed for this amazing dress to be a new addition to my wardrobe! 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

    LOVE this totally chic dress – you are seriously killing it Courtney! The beauty of Herve Leger dresses are their versatility. In Austin, it would be fabulous dressed down with suede booties, a fierce leather jacket and some slightly daring earrings for a night on the town. But, I’d also love to sport it in a more lady-like manner for a date or party with classic nude pumps like yours and a blingy statement necklace.

  • Angela Priliman

    I love this dress. As an Aggie, the fact that it’s maroon is even better!!! I would pair it with a longer slouchy cardigan with some flats for the day time, and then at night, the dress by itself with some fun stilettos is all you need. Love you Court!

  • Lauren Christenson

    Never would have thought this dress could work for day, but I love the way you styled it!!

  • Brittany Stone

    LOVE-ING this wine colored Herve dress! so perfect for our upcoming fall season! This dress could look so rad with an awesome cropped jean jacket and boots with a bright bag or with some jazzy gold sandals and a blush cropped sleeve blazer for day! For night I would definitely love to “sex-kitten” this dress up and go with either a fab pair of strappy nude or metallic pumps or a super sultry pair of pointed toe pumps…maybe even with some spike action. A statement necklace is a must with the strappy shoes, but with the spiked pointy toes I would keep it more subdued and go with a gentle gold necklace!

    Thanks for this giveaway!

  • Karrie Harper

    I often wear dresses with denim vest/jacket during day then take off at night. I also wear minimal jewelry and bring a statement piece with me.

  • Sam @ The Balance Artist

    LOVE how you styled the dress…I have always wanted an Herve dress (and those Louboutins!!). I would style it with a jean or military style jacket with lots of bracelets and embellished metallic sandals (maybe even my new champagne metallic MK sneakers?!) by day, and with my Schutz lace up heels and gold jewelry by night!

  • Rhonda

    Hi Courtney! Awesome giveaway! I am such a fan of bandage dresses and to work this dress as a daytime look I would style with an off white boyfriend vest, tan booties, and fun bangles and for a night look, with a biker leather jacket and black gladiator heels. Hope to win and show you pics of my styling!

  • Punam Shallenberger

    Courtney, you’ve nailed this!

    Obvi, the blazer is such a “I-woke-up-30-minutes-late-for-a-meeting” option over this stunner. You can walk in to the board room and no one will even be thinking about how your reports have coffee all over them.

    Now, on to your casual, but very put together look…Step 1: Herve bandage dress (is there even another option?) Step 2: Coordinating oxford or chambray shirt (this might be the most thought you have to put into this process. Step 3: Don’t button up and roll up the sleeves (you, know…you’re too cool for school) Step 4: Belt it, babe. Skinny and braided, or statement wide belt…either way it doesn’t matter. Step 5: Booties I think those heeled tan ones you’ve got on work great or even rough it up with some of your fave ankle, worn in, moto boots. 5 Steps—BOOM. Wear some shades though (that one can’t count).

    Date night: Herve Dress, nude shoes are perfect to let your now perfectly shaped bod say all that needs to be said. Red Lips. And some studs to add some sparkle next to that smile. Done.

    That dress is such a basic. The hardest part is to pick your color, really.

  • Lindsey Orabona

    I would definitely wear the dress with a jean jacket during the day and just keep it simple for the night with just a leather jacket if it gets cold! Never even thought to make this dress a day-to-night dress! Love it!

  • Rachael Proctor

    During the day, I would pair the dress with a cardigan and simple/classy black pumps for work. At night, I would ditch the cardigan for a blazer and switch my pumps for edgy black booties.

    LOVE the color of the dress!

  • Aston Daniels

    Strapped gold heels and door knocker earrings.

  • Lindsay

    This dress would look awesome with a cropped leather jacket and a super cute chunky necklace. I’m OBSESSED with this dress and its definitely a flattering cut that would look good on multiple body types!

  • Kaleigh

    For the day I would pair with a cropped denim jacket and my tan suede ankle booties with a brown leather tote. For night I would switch to my favorite leather jacket and nude lace up heels. I would throw on my garnet and gold cocktail ring and hit the town!

  • Sarah

    I would of course wear a chambray shirt and wear with cowboy booties during the day and switch to statement earrings and sky high stilettos for night!

  • Suzanne Gregory

    I would style this with a strong-shoulder blazer for the office. At night I would throw on some huge gold earrings and gold heels!

  • Stephanie

    I love this color for Fall! For day/work I would wear a black blazer or leather jacket with nude pumps. To take it to night I would wear sexy black booties and accessorize with a statement necklace and an adorable clutch/crossbody bag! I WANT 🙂

  • Rebecca Woodcock

    Styling a bandage dress from day to night can certainly be a tough call–unless you’re a consistent style and blog reader pulling inspiration from anywhere and everywhere! One way I would style the Herve Leger dress is to tuck it in to a fabulous pencil skirt with pumps and even a jacket for the office, then just pull off the skirt (and definitely the jacket) and style it with your favorite gems and bag for a night on the town!


  • amanda

    i love your style, courtney!! also, love the dress!

  • Jessica Pridgen

    I didn’t know it was possible to love Courtney Kerr any more than I already do, but now I know I was wrong! A Herve Leger dress?!?! YES PLEASE!!!

  • Tori

    Its all in the shoes and makeup. Maybe a neutral mid size pump with a soft brown smokey eye for the day and either a strappy high heel or bootie with a dark smokey eye for night.

  • Samantha Kucera

    Oh Herve! I’m forever drooling over his website, dresses and all. I’m counting the days until I graduate college and have a job so I can afford one of the many dresses I’ve bookmarked over the years. These dresses are definitely the most convertible. Flats, heals, pumps, booties, or knee high boots… All would work. Also a bunch of my leather jackets and even a chunky sweater would be crazy beautiful together. It’s just a can’t go wrong with anything type of dress. Love!

  • ashley

    this dress is AMAZING!!!!

  • Kelly

    What girl could not be in love with Herve Leger. It would be an absolute dream come true to be able to work this dress into my wardrobe and style it from day to night. I will make all the guys heads turn!!! 🙂

  • arika

    paired it with a light jacket and bright flats for day wear. Stilettos and statement accessories for night 🙂

  • austin

    Always been a fan of Herve! You rock it Courtney!!!

  • Bristol Parish

    I would style it during the day with big sunglasses, wavy hair, and wedges – for night I would do a high bun, some great lipstick, and an evening clutch.

  • Eli Martinez Rangel

    Hi Court! I looove the versatility you’ve given to this dress! I think this color and shape of dress goes with pretty much all body types. I would style the dress “down” by pairing it with a jean jacket, I would keep the booties you’re wearing!

  • Britan

    Loving this look! So many ways to style it… where do you even begin?!

  • Julie

    Just accessories for the day and a white trenchcoat for the night.

  • Lulu

    I’d wear it with blue booties and accessories for a day look, and for a night out I’d change into silver heels and add a sequined clutch and bright sparkly makeup…

  • Ellena

    I must have been a Texan in another life!!!!

    Seriously love your style and often copy your exact outfits – hence why I have to have this dress 🙂

  • Allie lee

    This dress is perfection!

  • Allison Baylis

    Flats to heels! The higher the heel the better the night!

  • Amelia

    Why cover such an amazing dress up? I’d simply pair it with a few bracelets, a tassel necklace, and fabulous high heels,

  • Kim Raguza

    Loveeee this color! It will be a great transition into fall!

  • Mary

    Love both looks, you seem to have nailed the look!
    Changing shoes, jewelry and jacket would vary the look. I would wear fancy flats with jacket during the day and then a longer lace knit cardigan from BCBG with high heel pumps for evening. Don’t forget to change your handbag as well!

  • Joey

    I love the way you styled the dress!

  • Paige

    I adore the way you make an Herve look casual! I never thought that was possible- but you do it effortlessly! I would love it styled with long gold chains and nude Loubs, I would throw in a lucite clutch for evening. But for day- i love it with the booties- makes it seem so pulled together but not like it took you 3 hours to get ready- and that’s what I love about your style! It’s attainable for everyone to achieve.

  • Kelsy

    I am classic in my style, so for work I would put a put a belted cardigan and matching flats for a more conservative day look, and simply add heels and big stud earrings for a night out!

  • Huong

    LOVED how you rocked it with simple nude heels! I’d like to keep it simple, but take it up a notch, Courtney-style with Sophia Webster heels like Jessica Stein’s here: http://www.tuulavintage.com/2013/07/sophia/

  • Veronica

    This outfit could not have been more perfect. You look phenomenal~

  • Amanda

    Amazing styling! I would style with a casual jean jacket for day and with sexy strappy heels for night!

  • Mary Krosnjar

    I absolutely love how Courtney styled the dress, it’s perfect for fall.

    The Sportsanista, yes I’m talking I’m the third person, would style it as such…….

    – One part Herve Leger oxblood bodycon dress
    – One part fur vest
    – One part lucite clutch
    – One part translucent pumps with black pointy toe

    Put it all together and that makes a fierce Fall favorite! Here’s to hoping I win! 🙂

  • Mallory

    You look great as always.

  • Janice

    I LOVE this look!

  • Constance Jordan

    Since I work in a more professional setting (attorney), I would pair the dress with a simple black blazer and black booties or simple black pumps during the day. For night, I would exchange the blazer and booties/pumps for a statement bracelet and earrings (no jacket) and some high heeled sandals.

  • Radmila

    I loved the way you styled it, cannot do it better. Perhaps a denim jacekt for day, and statement ring and stilettos for night!

  • Lydia Joy

    I’d jazz it up with a bit more of statement jewelry and heels/strappy sandals! xx

  • Amanda

    That dress is amazing! I love the look of Herve Leger and I’m so excited that the Outnet is carrying it now! It means it is that much closer to my budget. 🙂

    I’d pair one of their dresses with a military style jacket and booties or I’d do a pullover sweater and pumps for a work look!

  • Rust

    Croc pumps and simple gold jewelry.

  • Corinne

    I absolutely love this dress, especially in white. I’d pair it with a boyfriend cardigan and a pair of sandals for a casual dinner date.

  • Amanda

    Gorgeous! That dress would look amazing in my closet!

  • Lynn

    I love the herve leger ombre bandage dress. I think i can pair it with a cute crop denim jacket and flats for a day time look. And for night throw on a pair of black heels, a boyfriend blazer and a gold and black tone jewelry.

  • Thrifted and Modern
