Make The Most of your Wardrobe All Year Round

Summer is officially over and that means it is time to say goodbye to cute Summer dresses… or is it??!!

When it comes to the end of the season, it seems like such a shame to banish your dresses to the back of your wardrobe, never to be seen again.. ok, too dramatic maybe but you get the idea!!

We all know Winter is about layers so why not take your Summer pieces (ie. those cute Summer dresses) and wear them with your new Winter styles! Wearing your dress over pants is currently one of the coolest ways to layer your look. This works equally as well if you are on the other side of the world and heading into Summer too. Perfect for when you are itching to wear your Summer dresses but the weather doesn’t quite allow it yet!

So how to tackle the trend?

When trying the dress over pants trend, personally I would stick to a skinny leg jean or pant, as a more fitted style easily works with either a mini length dress or a maxi dress. If going for the maxi dress option, try one with a split to allow the pants to be seen (otherwise what is the point, right?!) If you are feeling daring though, why not play around with different proportions.. a flared crop pant with a structured tunic dress maybe? Add a draped coat or a jacket for extra layering points (or you know,  for warmth!)

    I am in love with that fuzzy coat!! It’s so cool. But I love those long coatigan sort of styles, they seem just that bit rock and roll. Hmm, dresses over pants kinda frightens me. I have only done it with a lace slip dress over leather pants, but I didn’t actually ever photograph that look. Maybe I should redo it! xx Jenelle

    I love how you layered one of your summer dresses over leggings for your upcoming Winter season. I’ve even seen girls pair dresses with jeans and have really liked how it looks. I’ll have to give it a try myself =)
