It doesn’t matter whether it is the new dress you bought for summer or whether it is your favorite dress from last summer. At this time a year, we gals are all eager to wear our summer items to up our mood thru the last chilly days. An easy way to head start wearing summer clothes is to pair them with items from our winter wardrobe.
Wear it now
Here I wore my summer sheath with a sweater that picks up a color of the print. I added matching shoes. The result looks like a pencil skirt with a sweater. To downplay the contrast between the summer and winter pieces I repeated the white of the dress by adding a white belt and scarf. The result: a fresh colorful spring outfit for work. To not freeze to hypothermia I wore a half-slip underneath the sheath. Nobody will know that little secret. I added my new spring coat – a thrift-store find – for the commute.
