There is nothing quite like the feeling of wearing a summer dress. Inherently, your summer dress is all about ease. A summer dress makes getting dressed a cinch. We are all about keeping things simple and easy. While wearing dresses in summer is good, wearing those same dresses all year is even better. Maximize the use of the clothes in your closet to make mornings easy for yourself. Build outfits around the premise of wearing your favourite pieces over and over again, all year-long.
Aim to improve the versatility of your closet by having clothes that you CAN wear year round. There’s no need to pack your summer dresses away until next May. Adapt how you wear something according to the season, and consequently, you will have a much more highly wearable wardrobe. Your ankle boots can be worn through the summer with bare legs. A favourite top can be worn over and also under pieces you already own. Your white jeans can be worn through the winter with oversized sweaters. Wear dresses in all seasons by changing up how you style them. And so, let’s dissect how to style your summer dress for four seasons of use.
Add Kicky, Warm-Weather Accessories For Summer
This one is the no-brainer. In order to make the dress versatile for simple summer wear, play with your accessories. A straw Panama hat and strap-y, woven wedges do the trick.
Wear a Turtleneck and High Boots With Your Summer Dress
Now you are set for cooler temperatures. Suede knee-high boots and a wide-brimmed hat nod to the 70’s, as does the turtleneck. Each of these additional pieces adds an autumnal mood to the dark-hued floral of this dress. Layering a sweater under your summer dress changes the entire feel of the piece.
Add Tights and a Shirt Under Your Summer Dress
Opaque tights provide extra warmth. A soft button-down blouse makes the dress fall, winter and spring-ready. Layering like this also makes the dress much more interesting!
Layer Your Summer Dress With a Topper and Skinny Jeans
Throw a blazer or cardigan over your dress for instant all-weather wearability. I say take it a step further and wear leggings or jeans under your dress (even faux leather jeans). Who says you can’t wear your summer dress as a tunic? Add a wide belt and some great booties. The peep-toe booties are certainly not necessary, though they do add some great texture to this layered look. Definitely, avoid them in the rain and snow!
Throw On a Sweater Over Your Summer Dress
A big, soft sweater says winter to me. Pulling one on over a dress with tights and boots instantly makes your summer dress into winter wear. It’s an easy cold-weather solution.
