A great dress makes an awesome skirt look

Wear a sheath dress as skirt with a sweater

A reader, who is on a budget, what she can do about her “wardrobe boredom.” She said she feels like she is wearing the same outfit again and again. Here I demonstrate one (of many other solutions) to her problem. A great dress makes an awesome skirt look or may look great as a top under a skirt or over pants.

Here I am wearing exemplary my Fair Isle sweater over my large second hand hounds-tooth pattern sheath dress. Doesn’t that dress make a nice skirt? It’s an easy trick to get more wear out of the pieces you own.

Look at a dress as a skirt or even top to get more outfits out of your wardrobe. #budgetfashion Click To Tweet

Get your sunglasses out when the light comes back

In Interior Alaska, spring means that we have finally more daylight than darkness, and we have that earlier than those who live north of the equator, but south of us. Actually, it is the sunlight and the blue skies I always look forward to during the long dark nights and short cold days of late December, early January. March is the driest months in the Interior. This means a lot of sunshine. The Sun’s light is reflected on the snow. Thus, spring in Alaska means that you have to wear sunglasses again. Well, of course, sunglasses add style to the above awesome dress as skirt look too.

Sunglasses are an easy way to up your style. #styleadvice Click To Tweet

Outerwear is an outfit too…

… hence don’t miss your chance, or the fun, of styling your outerwear. Despite all that sunlight, it is still cold outside. Thus, I wear my faux fur coat again. In spring, the hat is just for fun and style.
