Anyone else shop for summer items during winter, and winter items during summer?? We do ALL the time! Buying clothes for a different season than your in can be hard because your only wanting clothes that you can wear now but it is the best way to ensure you are getting the best deal on the best clothing! We got these super cute pieces on the Ivy Staple website and decided to give them our winterized twist. :) Ivy Staple has some cute clothes that are more spring/summery but you can use these tips to help you dress those clothes in the colder months. We also love that they have a good prices! There are lots of ways that you can take a cute summer piece and layer it up to give it a more fall/winter feel. Here are 5 tips that we've come up with to take any summer piece, and wear it year round!
1. Layer with long sleeve underneath
One of the easiest ways to add some warmth to your outfit is to just layer it up with some long sleeves! We love the way Ashlyn layered her outfit in the picture below with this jumpsuit. It adds some character with the stripes and bell sleeves without covering up the cute jumpsuit! We also added this chain link belt to accentuate the waist, and make it more flattering.
2. Add leggings or thick tights
This is another fun and simple way to take your summer items to the next level! We love to wear thick leggings under our short summer dresses, and pair them with some boots and a jacket to add some warmth.
3. Wear socks under your strappy sandals
Don't store away your favorite strappy sandals for winter. Bring em' out and flaunt them! We love to wear knee high socks or tights under our strappy sandals. Pair them with a t-shirt dress, shorts, or skirt!
4. Tone down the bright colors with a neutral cardigan
Summer clothes tend to be really bright in color which makes it hard to pull off during the winter months. Color is completely fine to wear as long as you tone it down with some neutrals. For example take your favorite bright floral dress and pair it with a darker neutral color cardigan. This will tone down the brightness, and allow you to rock it all year long
5. Add an oversized sweater on top of summer dress
Just like in the first tip we gave about layering underneath items, you can just as easily layer on the top. We love the look of an oversized sweater on top of a short flowy dress. Add some of your favorite thick tights or leggings
