Ladies, do you have that dress you just absolutely love that you do not dare to part with it as the coldness of the winter months creep upon you? I have plenty of them. This purple number is one of those dresses. During the summer months I usually paired the dress with a pair of sandals suitable to wear to work and play in. Obviously this would not do as the temperature dropped. The dress was already thin, I knew I had to pair the dress with something that could make it wearable in December.
My love of tights and blazers prevailed. I kept similar accessories (the belt, silver necklace, sunglasses). I added a black blazer, darker purple tights - playing up my favorite color, and instead of gray sandals I chose gray suede pumps.
Honestly, add a blazer to any dress or summer ensemble and you can turn it into a winter staple. Also, a pair of tights could mean freezing your butt off or being chilly. If you love to layer, don't forget about scarves which immediately create a fresh look. Again with layering, try adding a long sleeve turtleneck or crew neck underneath your dresses or paired with your floral skirts.
Give it a try! Take a picture and let me see how you updated your summer wardrobe!
