3 Easy Ways to Make Your Dress Winter-Friendly
Transition from summer to winter, without having to say goodbye to your favourite dresses.
You’re probably wondering what to do with your collection of summer dresses from seasons past now that we’re well into winter fashion in Australia. If you want to get the most out of your dresses year-round, you can mix and match them with winter essentials to create a variety of fabulous outfit ideas.
Here are some clever ways to keep your fun, flirty frocks in rotation all year long.
We Love Us Some Layers
First on the agenda is learning to master the art of layering. It’s always a good option to start with outerwear that can look good paired with just about anything. One that always does the trick is an Aussie winter essential --- a mid-blue wash denim jacket. It adds a cool vibe without the bulk. It’s also the perfect shade to pair with your favourite white summer dress.
If you need an outfit that you can take to the office or a night out, choose a cover-up that adds a touch of polish. Look sleek and sophisticated in a neat fit jacket over a playful, printed dress.
Another clever layering trick is wearing your dress over a turtleneck or a long-sleeved tee. You’ll look fresh and modern in an instant!
Finish It Up with The Right Footwear
Boots and dresses are a match made in winter heaven. From knee-high styles to versatile ankle cuts, there’s a perfect pair to finish off your fabulous look. So, swap out those summer-ready sandals for a sassier option.
Tall boots, on the other hand, work great with minis. Flat knee-high boots in black, brown, or tan are perfect for all kinds of outfits. Pair them with a statement piece summer dress in animal print and get ready to turn heads.
Combine bold colours and playful summer prints with darker neutrals and warm tones to complement the cooler season. Consider adding a smartly knotted scarf over your winter layers. Or if you’re feeling a bit playful, introduce a touch of texture to your overall outfit by slipping on some tights. And, complete your cool girl-on-the-go look with a nice leather sling bag.
These are tried and tested fashion hacks to turn your summer dress into a trans-seasonal must-have. Feeling inspired but not sure where to start?
