Lay It on Thick.... Or Thin

Its that time of year. Snow. Rain. Wind. Colder-than-average temps... its tempting to pull out the tweed, cashmere, and chunky knits and let your favorite spring and summer  pieces go by the wayside. Well, before you pack away your favorite pieces and pine for warmer climes, try layering pieces in your wardrobe for a look that's a little unexpected and best of all.... seasonally appropriate!

How to Transition a Summer Dress

Start with....

A blouse like this navy plait-shouldered blouse from Vila...



Add...

A summer dress like this striped one from Almari...


Top it off with...
A cozy zippered faux fur vest like this one from Vince Camuto...

For finishing touches...season it up with....

Gray herringbone knit tights like this pair from The Gap..... and some ankle boots like this interesting pair from Aldo.



How to Transition a Sleeveless Tunic

Start with...






A bright sleeveless tunic top like this one from River Island...

Add....




Textured leggings like these Lyssé Leggings Floral Brocade Flocked Ponte Leggings...

Top it off with...




A jacket like this biker jacket from Zara...


For finishing touches...season it up with....


A fun scarf like this cashmere one by Etro.... and boots like these (spiked!) boots from Christian Louboutin.

There's no better feeling than creating a brand new look out of existing pieces in your wardrobe.  Happy layering!
