FASHION POST: Winterizing Your Wardrobe

   

Cooler weather has arrived, finally!! What is a girl suppose to do with some of her summer/spring type pieces of clothing?

I challenged myself to winterize a few of my pieces that are worn in the summer or warmer months. I was a little surprized at how seasonless some of my pieces were.

Here is what I came up with.....

 This simple little knit dress is a perfect little dress for the summer months, don't you agree?

And here is the after a few well chosen accessories and I now have a Fall/Winter look.





Here it is in cobalt blue all ready for winter!




Same dress different colors and sizes of stripes, but all can be made to look more appropriate for cooler months with the addition of the correct accessories.

Fun, cheerful and very summery looking isn't it? This little top is so versatile because of it's many colors.


Now it can be worn throughout the year!!

Sleeveless tops are my go-to blouse, summer or winter months. They are great for layering under a cashmere sweater. The collar peeking out is sometimes all you need to brighten up an outfit.

I added a cobalt cardigan and some magenta velvet jeans to make this more of a Fall outfit.

Pink boyfriend jeans can be worn throughout the season when the right accessories are added.....




If you have a cute jean skirt, be sure to pair it with a warm sweater and a cute pair of booties!

This soft embellished knit top looks like it could never cross over into a cooler season, but by adding a little touch of leopard, I made it work!

Be sure to re-examine some of your clothes that you put away for the winter, they JUST might work with some of your winter accessories. Play with your clothes and try different combinations, you just might be surprised at how your wardrobe can work from you.

That was helpful. Living in Florida you never really need more than that second layer. The dress looked cute in all your pictures and who doesn't enjoy a touch of leopard.

Well, I need for you to pay a visit to my closet. I'm pretty sure you could come up with a zillion looks with my closet full of clothes. Great post and great ideas!

Hi Kathysue.
You must be the best dressed lady in your neighborhood. You always have such cute outfits.

Loved your outfits. The trouble with being retired is some days, I can stay in my nightgown all day; why put on clean clothes to do housework and crafting? I love scarves and jewelry to add a touch of difference to the same ol', same ol'!
