The official start of spring is still just out of reach, but that doesn’t mean that you have to wait to channel it into your wardrobe. Let the itch for brighter days ahead inspire you to get creative with your favorite spring dresses a few weeks early. All it takes is the right layers to make these warm-weather frocks suitable for the current moment.
To browse a few must-know ways of layering dresses that are totally foolproof, scroll ahead:
Take your favorite white shirt dress and make it feel new with two simple pieces: a leather shacket and a pair of knee-high boots. For the former, try one that ties at the waist for a figure-hugging look, and top it off with your favorite top-handle bag.
For those who lean on little black dresses all year-’round, liven yours up with a second-skin top — like La Double J’s floral turtleneck. Finish with a pair of sporty sandals, for a cool, errand-ready look.
Every modern woman should have a blazer in her lineup, for more reasons than one — including the occasion of reassigning spring dresses for late winter wear. Style a ribbed knit dress with your favorite blazer and polish it off with a pair of lace-up sandals.
A favorite peak summer dress tends to be the all-white, tiered silhouette — which is more versatile than you think. Simply style with a cape coat to expand upon the play with shape. From there, pairing it with dainty pumps will add a feminine note.
Looking to stretch your favorite nightie a bit further into your wardrobe? Look no further than a slim-cut knit turtleneck, which will add a pop to the subdued silhouette.
