Seasons come and go. They change, bringing about weather that forces us to change parts of our lifestyle as well. One of the most noticeable of these changes is changes in one’s dress wearing habits and wardrobe. For about three months of each year, seasonal clothes are stored and kept in closets to make way for the latest one. This can put a strain on one’s budget. Clothes are segregated and only worn on a certain times, instead of all year round. Not only that, they can go out of style by the time you are ready to wear them again, at the right season.

As with the seasons, this situation can also be changed. What if summer dresses can be worn in the winter? Summer dresses are meant to be worn in the summer, hence the name, but with a little creativity and insight, summer dresses can indeed be worn out of season in the winter time.

Summer and winter, heat and cold: two opposing seasons, two completely different weather types. How does one reconcile the two? Simple, by layering up, warm weather clothing can be worn during the cold. This not only make your wardrobe versatile and season friendly, it also challenges you to make bold and interesting moves to let your inner fashionista shine through. You need not hide under bulky layers of clothing forced upon you by the freezing winter weather. Wear a little sunshine in your outfit by incorporating summer dresses into the mix. Here are some ways on how to wear summer dresses in winter.

Wear cardigans over your dress. Long ones cover the waist and hips to keep the body adequately warm, while open styled sweaters allow the summer dress to peek through. They give a fresh look to an otherwise boring outfit. For dresses with short skirt, keep your legs toasty and warm by wearing tights and leggings. The dull grays and blues of winter against the vibrant reds and yellows of summer create an eye catching contrast. For mono colored summer dresses, patterned leggings may be worn as well to create the same contrasting effect.

The right summer dress over some dark colored jeans is a trendy way of showing yourself off. It not only drives away the cold, but keeps you in style as well. Paired with comfortable boots, this can be an everyday look and can be worn to class or errands around town. For a nighttime look, swap the boots with some high heeled ones good enough to last you for hours of clubbing. Bundle up in thick sweaters and coats while still showing off a vibrantly colorful sundress under all that clothing.

Layer summer dresses with fur. Fur-lined vests make a cute accent with pastel colored dresses while still keeping you toasty as a bunny. Fur scarves and hats further complete the look. This gives a pleasant contrast between feminine and masculine elements, that otherwise aren’t commonly seen. Be unique and stand out from the crowd by pairing furs with pastels.

A simple white sundress can be used to compliment the metallic colors of winter. Pair bold colored summer dresses with trench coats and layer up with scarves, mittens, leggings and socks. The colorful summer dresses can go a long way to keep your wardrobe from looking drab throughout the winter months. They give that needed spark to what would be an otherwise dreary color palette. A great way to winter-up a great floral summer dress is by wearing a cool denim jacket, a light colored scarf, and knee high boots.

Patterned knitted sweaters can be worn over block colored summer dresses for a warmer feel. Maxi summer dresses can be worn as well, and tights can be worn underneath for added warmth. The length keeps drafts away from the legs while keeping you stylishly attired. Wearing boots with summer dresses effectively transitions them into the winter wardrobe. Short skirts work well with knee-high boots, while the longer variety is more likely paired with ankle boots.

Accessorize to maximize the layered look. Hats, scarves, mittens, gloves, coats, jackets, wraps, and shawls all work to ward off the cold. With the right amount of layers, sundresses can look amazing. Wear sleeveless dresses over long-sleeved tops for a unique and eclectic look. Wear two summer dresses together, one over the other for a different layered look. Breathe new life into old winter outfits by using a belt from a summer dress as a headband to accent your hair. Wear scarves to cinch in loose shift styled-dresses at the waist. Wear a warm sweater under a roomy sundress with a mod style silhouette; pair flowing dresses with long sweaters and trench coats, to get a feel of both summer and winter; lightweight fabrics in contrast with heavy, even chunky ones create an interesting mix.

Tight fitting dresses with sexier styles (halter, backless, plunging necklines), can be worn as tops for jeans and/or trousers and can be worn under leather jackets for an edgy and even sexier outfit. Delicate knitted or lace shawls can be paired with dresses to keep the feminine feel of it. Flower printed dresses paired with black sweaters give out a subdued, classic, womanly air.

Whatever style you choose to do, don’t be afraid to make unusual choices. They may not be main stream but they give you a uniqueness that can never be copied by everybody else. Be creative and match colors that contrast and complement each other for a bolder look. Just because it is winter, does not mean that summer colors cannot be worn. On the other hand, this gives them a chance to pop and stand out which in turn makes you as the wearer stand out as well. Push the limits of what can and cannot be done on the name of fashion. Explore ways of mixing seasonal fads for an exciting and eclectic look that is all your own. Create your own style and make the most of your wardrobe without necessarily breaking the bank.
