Negosentro | How To Repurpose Summer Dresses and Skirts For Winter | It has happened to a lot of people, particularly women when it comes to looking through the winter wardrobe or even the autumn wardrobe. You come across a skirt or a dress that you loved wearing in summer or spring, and it is now too cold outside to wear it, but you really want to!
Luckily, there are some ways that you can wear even the thinnest summer dresses or skirts in the cooler months. All you need to do is accessorize correctly, and you will stay warm and get to wear your favorite clothes before the next sunny season.
So, here are some top tips to help you repurpose summer dresses or skirts for the winter or even autumn.
The first step you need to take to repurpose a skirt or dress is to add tights.
Even the most stylish and thinnest dresses from websites like froxx.co.uk can be accessorized with a pair of autumn or winter tights. In years gone by, the only options available for thicker or thermal tights were either black or grey. But as it has become more popular to repurpose summer clothing, more online stores and shops are able to offer tights in a rainbow of colors. Simply choose your favorite and pair it with your summer dress.
Add A Turtleneck
Turtlenecks are a must-have for the cooler months, as they combine a jumper’s comfort with a scarf’s warming capabilities. While you may not think that a turtleneck would go well with your polka-dot skirt or dress, it will. Just make sure, as before, that the turtleneck is thick enough to keep you warm, and you will be rocking that repurposed look!
Add A Jacket
Of course, if you are going out and about in your repurposed summer clothing, you will want to have a warm jacket. This season it seems that leather and faux leather jackets are back in, along with woolen coats. Both of these are perfect for keeping you warm and dry as long as the leather is in good condition! While longer coats can suffice, they can also hide shorter skirts and dresses, so for days that are a little bit brighter and less icy, it can be worth investing in a winter jacket.
Add Ankle Boots
Ankle boots make a summer dress or skirt into an autumn dress or skirt, as they provide more coverage without going over the top in the way that knee-high boots sometimes can.
They are comfortable, always stylish, and can be paired with almost any dress and still look trendy. So, they are a must-have accessory when you’re looking to repurpose summer skirts or dresses.
Add A Beanie
Beanies or knitted wool caps never go out of fashion, especially if you live in a colder climate. Much like the tights mentioned earlier, they come in a range of colors, patterns, and designs, so pair your summer dress or skirt with a beanie, and you’re good to go on even the coldest of days!
