How to Wear Summer Dresses in Colder Months


I was going to do this post last week…but I didn’t.

I have some sleeveless dresses that I LOVE. But in the past, I’ve always just packed them away when the weather got chilly. I’m not going to do that this year, though. So to inspire me (and hopefully you) to make those dresses work through the colder months, here are some inspiring outfits of dresses layered up for cooler weather. All images are linked to Pinterest.

1. Wear a belted shirt or cardigan—or both—over your dress.

2. Wear a knotted shirt over your dress. I think a lot of people think this is more of a summer look, but if you use the right pieces, it’s a great way to transition your sleeveless dresses to fall (a plaid shirt perhaps? Or warm fall colors.)

3. Wear a shirt under your dress. Yeah, use it as a jumper.

4. Wear a sweater over your dress. Extra points if it’s a bright-colored sweater.

And of course, all these looks are great with tights, boots, socks, belts, hats, scarves…just later it up and make it warm! Are there any tips and tricks you have for transitioning pieces into cooler months? Please share!
