Transitioning summer dresses into winter is a great way to maximize your wardrobe and stay stylish even in colder temperatures. Here are some tips to help you make that transition:

  1. Layering is Key:

    • Start with a basic layer, such as a long-sleeved shirt or turtleneck, underneath your summer dress. This adds warmth without sacrificing style.
    • Consider adding a cozy cardigan or sweater (we love Goumi's Chunky Knit Sweatersover the dress for extra warmth.
  2. Add Tights or Leggings:

    • Wear opaque tights or leggings to keep your legs warm. You can choose solid colors or experiment with patterns for a more stylish look.
  3. Boot Up:

    • Pair your dress with ankle boots, knee-high boots, or over-the-knee boots to keep your feet warm. Boots not only add warmth but also give your outfit a winter-appropriate feel.
  4. Throw on a Jacket or Coat:

    • Top off your outfit with a stylish winter coat or jacket. Choose one that complements the style and color of your dress. Wool coats, trench coats, or puffer jackets are great options. Check out our selection of coats to find your perfect addition! 
  5. Accessorize:

    • Use accessories like scarves, hats, and gloves to add both style and warmth. A chunky knit scarf or a stylish beanie can make a significant difference in keeping you cozy.
  6. Experiment with Textures:

    • Introduce winter textures like velvet, corduroy, or knit fabrics into your outfit. For example, a velvet blazer or a chunky knit cardigan can instantly winterize your summer dress. Our favorite this season is The Knotty One's Klavos Wool Sweater Vest.
  7. Belt it:

    • Define your waist and add a winter touch by accessorizing with a stylish belt. This can transform the silhouette of the dress and add an extra layer of interest.
  8. Darken the Color Palette:

    • Opt for darker colors and richer tones in your accessories and layers. Deep burgundies, forest greens, and navy can give your outfit a more winter-appropriate feel.
  9. Experiment with Midi and Maxi Lengths:

    • Midi and maxi dresses provide more coverage and warmth. Pair them with boots and a fitted jacket for a chic winter look.
  10. Play with Patterns:

    • Don't be afraid to experiment with winter-appropriate patterns like plaid, houndstooth, or fair isle. Incorporating these patterns into your layers or accessories can make your outfit more seasonally appropriate.

Remember, the key is to get creative and have fun with your winter styling. By combining layers, accessories, and seasonal textures, you can effortlessly transition your summer dresses into stylish winter outfits.
