Welcome back! I hope April is treating you well so far. It’s getting pretty chilly in Jozi and I think I was a bit unprepared for how quick the weather would switch up on us. That being said, this week’s post is a quick guide on how to switch up a summer dress to a more wearable, winter outfit. I changed up a few items to create two different looks with the very same dress.
I don’t think it’s necessary for you to purchase a whole new wardrobe for the coming, cooler seasons. Just add a jacket here and a pair of boots there and you’ve got a different look. This winter I plan on recycling the crap outta my summer garments by layering and accessorizing to create different looks. Gotta save that coin!
So this is the dress without any real winter element, besides the boots I guess. I LOVE these boots with my whole heart guys, my WHOLE HEART! So instead of wearing this with a thin strapped heel, I added these badass boots from Public Desire.
I threw on a leather jacket and some chunky punk boots from Misguided. I also strapped on this cute little belt purse. Not much of a bum bag but it’s a daintier iteration of a regular bum bag. I think it adds a soft but edgy touch to this floral dress.
Keep the leather jacket, throw on a beret and you can rest easy while the cold settles in. I took my jacket off because I looked sweaty! haha. But you get me…
Save your coin and try this out!
Hope you enjoy creating some winter looks with your summer items!
Love & Joy
