How to Re-Work Your Summer Staples for Every Season
Four times a year the fashion world re-works their wardrobe (and urges you to do the same) in order to cater to the current season, whether that be summer sun or winter chills. However, they generally fail to mention the associated costs with creating a new wardrobe for each specific change of weather. For the average gal (or guy) on a budget, this just isn’t feasible, here is a quick run down on how to wear your summer favourites all year round, and save some coin by only investing in a few game-changing pieces like a coat, boots and a snuggly knit.
For the body-con dress lover, channel Kimmy K and layer like a boss. Think long cardigans layered under a coat of similar length and a scarf with ankle boots, this look works well with a midi length.
For the lightweight flirty, floral fit and flare dress lover, look to Alexa Chung and turn your dress into a skirt by layering a knit over it and pairing the outfit with opaque tights and ankle boots, a nod to the preppy/pretty punk trends.
If shift dresses are more your thing, then go retro and utilise this winters tendency towards the 60s and 70s trend. Think like Twiggy or Edie and wear opaques and a turtleneck under your shift dress, with brogues or loafers.
LIGHT WEIGHT TOPS:
wearing a light weight top in winter is all about smart, sneaky layering. Invest in underwear such as camp’s and tanks you can discreetly wear underneath, then look towards cardigans and jumpers made from textiles such as wool, cashmere and and angora for warmth without the bulk.
SKIRTS & SHORTS:
These items can be a little tricky, but when you’re unsure how to work you’re denim cut-offs in winter, look towards Tash and Elle Sefton of style blog TheyAllHateUs. Go preppy and wear shirts under bulky knits with your shorts or think punk and wear opaques underneath with ankle boots and a biker jacket. Keep in mind if you’ve got your pins exposed to the elements make sure you keep everything else rugged up.
