Dresses and skirts do not have to be worn solely within the season of summer. When the temperature drops, there’s no reason to say goodbye to our favorite light summer items. There are plenty of ways to still wear those simple and fun light items even in the winter time. For the past few months, I’ve become obsessed with the look of layering a knit sweater over a dress or skirt. Depending on the given temperature you can add tights, a jacket or a beanie to winterize your outfit.
My outfit consists of a white knit sweater worn over a floral dress from Forever 21. Spending my winter in Charleston allows me to have the choice of wearing either just the dress or adding layers for just a bit extra level of comfort.
Today was about 60 degrees, so I was able to wear just my floral dress and still be comfortable.
Never forget to add pieces of jewelry to the outfit. It always makes a statement.
Here I am wearing a studded bracelet from Urban Outfitters, an Alex and Ani bangle and a gold chain necklace from Aldo.
My choice of shoe-wear are my Riovista booties from Steve Madden. They’re becoming my new favorite shoe preference, because you can wear them with any outfit and it looks appropriate. Booties also instantly make your outfit look more sophisticated in my opinion, so wearing them with a casual outfit as this one evens out the tone of my ensemble.
So don’t forget about your favorite pieces of your summer wardrobe just because the temperatures lower throughout these chillier months of winter. Layer it up & have fun with it.
