I actually forgot I had taken these pics last month…
Today I was raking my brain, trying to think about an outfit for my first festive holiday party of the season. I figured I would re-do this outfit. Which led me to think of these pics from October… And just like that, I have an outfit post 🙂
For the upcoming holiday season, a great way to save a little money is to re-style a summer dress. By adding a dark blazer and some heavy jewelry to this beige dress, I have a winter-appropriate party-dress. Depending on the party, I might also choose to add some sparkly shoes or tights.
The rules for winterizing a dress:
1. Stick to dresses made from fabrics that are popular is all seasons (silk, satin, poly-blends, etc). Stay away from cotton sundresses!
2. Patterns can be tricky. Some patters may work for winter, some don’t. To be safe, re-style a solid-coloured dress
3. Add other winter clothing pieces. I chose a blazer for these photos, but I could have thrown on an over-sized sweater, scarf, or layered the dress over a turtleneck.
4. Add some heavy jewlery pieces that are appropriate for the season. I chose a dark bib necklace and some dark bracelets.
