Is it possible to "dress down" a leather dress?

I am 26 and had my son 12 months ago - I've got no idea what to wear now! I have lost all my confidence and my style. I feel like I'm too fat to wear anything now, size 14-16 (I'm working on the fat thing though smile)

I got this dress, I was wondering if there would be any way I could dress it down for during the day or something? Or would it be strictly a going out dress?

Usually my "style" is dresses with ankle boots, I always feel frumpy.

You could dress it down with a polo-neck top underneath, opaques and boots.

I'd do a striped polo neck and tan heeled knee boots for a 70s look, but you could go for block colours and ankle boots too.

Put a slouchy jumper on top and wear it with black tights and pumps/brogues.

Yes, definitely. I have a leather dress similar to that and always wear It dressed down with a long sleeved top underneath, tights and ankle boots.
