How to wear a Summer dress in Winter

Pink Pepper Paradise black dress

I’m wearing: Forever21 black dress, Mango turtleneck, Mango shoes, Calzedonia tights, Sammydress bag

I don’t know how do you feel, but for me it’s always very sad to say goodbye for the summer dresses when the weather starting to get colder. This year, I will not leave my summer wardrobe, I will mix my jumpers with my summer dresses as many people do it with the velvet dresses. Actually is very fashionable to wear t-shirt with spaghetty strap dress or a lace top. I think it’s always great if we are open minded and we are ready to experimenting with new things in fashion. So I bought a few turtleneck shirts in different colors and I took out my summer dresses in Winter.

Tips and tricks how to wear Summer dress in Winter:

Warm tights and over knee boots will keep your legs warm and match perfect for a Summer dress
Layers are key for a transitional wardrobe – layer a delicate lace turtleneck underneath
Wear a pullover over your summer dress
Top your summer dress with fur coat or west

    I love your style and tips. Living in a tropical country, it is an extra effort to plan what to wear during Autumn and Winter since we do not have it here in Manila. I was only able to get the hang of it when my family moved to Canada. I get to love Winter fashion too.

    Your outfit looks good on you. I bet if that kind of dressing would be appropriate in our country. We live in a tropical country and often, we experience early summer. I also miss wearing turtlenecks. I seldom wear blouses without buttons or zipper in front as I

    I love fashion! I love the idea of recycled fashion, especially when the season and weather changes. I think it’s important in fashion to have your own style and be bold about it, and who knows maybe you’ll end up being the trendsetter or a game changer.

    I have this shibori shawl that I love wearing, I still need to look up some awesome videos on youtube on how to wear one that covers my shoulders and arms to make me look slimmer, as I do have big arms and wide shoulders.

    You look really great on this post, how did you take the pictures, or who was your photographer?

    By the way, great post. Cheers! 🙂

    Nice photos! The outfit looks great. It certainly might be a different style. Here in Moscow, you do not see anyone walking around like this. It is just way too cold and I am really looking forward to summer. 🙂

    Love the black and white ensemble. It looks minimalistic, simple, and chic. I particularly like that it’s loose, and it’s something that I’m most comfy wearing. But at the same time, you don’t look like you’re in your sweatpants because of the color 🙂

    I’ve always been a fan of layering like this. I used to wear all my summer clothes in winter in all sorts of layers. I had about 8 long sleeve basics and wooly vests to mix up with my summer clothes. Great patterned or basic leggings always a great addition as well. I was intrigued at the zipper on that dress, it almost looks like a skirt and top. Love the boots!

    I love the overall look and feel of your outfit. The color and cut is so chic and classy. When I was in Copenhagen, most of the ladies I saw wore this color scheme. I don’t think I can pull this look off here in the tropics but maybe when I travel back to Europe, I’d try this ensemble. I especially love the summer dress because it is simple and looks really effortless and lightweight.
