5 Ways to Wear Summer Dresses In Winter

There are a lot of factors that go into Sustainable Fashion, like knowing what something is made of, where it was made, and who made it, but cherishing what you have is an equally important aspect (and maybe the easiest!).

An average American throws away over 65 pounds of clothing per year, releasing methane in landfills and leaving 2nd hand shops (and 3rd world countries) overflowing with discarded textiles. One simple solution to wasting less is finding ways to use what you do have to the fullest. Making your wardrobe transitional through each season is an easy and creative way to use your Sustainable wardrobe all year long, allowing you to enjoy your favorite pieces regardless of weather and build long-lasting relationships with the clothing that you own.

1) ADD JACKETS & TIGHTS

Take your favorite floral summer dress and add cozy organic tights and a long-sleeve crop jacket to instantly take you from summer to winter for a chic, colorful look in unexpected colors.

2) ADD LEGGINGS & A BUTTON DOWN

Transition a lightweight dress into a casual winter look by adding an oversized button down shirt and your softest leggings. Finish with flat boots and you're ready for the weekend in a look that is as functional as it is pretty.

3) WEAR A DRESS AS A SKIRT

A fit'n'flare dress is a versatile closet staple. Beautiful on its own, to winterize it just throw on your favorite long sleeve tee or pullover sweater and top it with a cardigan or blazer to create a fresh layered look that will keep you warm and well dressed.

4) STATEMENT LAYERS OVER AND UNDER

Make your carefree summer dress into a winter favorite by adding some extra statement layers. An extra long sleeve tee under your sleeveless dress with a cropped cardigan over it will add some much-needed warmth without compromising style.

5) WEAR IT OVER JEANS

We all love the comfort of jeans, so don't be afraid to mix your favorite skinnies with your favorite summer dress. A warm sweater and some waterproof booties will finish off this juxtaposed look.
