Style Advice of the Week

One of the biggest disadvantages of living somewhere with all four seasons is having to have a separate wardrobe for your summer, fall, winter and spring clothes. After spotting this Fashionista walking home, I was happily reminded I don’t have to resort to wearing pants every single day in the winter. An oversized sweater over a floaty dress and tights is the perfect way to incorporate your warmer weather clothes into your winter wardrobe.

This Fashionista pairs a slouchy sweater from Urban Outfitters with a Brandy Melville dress. Layering knit over floral feels more wintery and adding tights underneath keeps it warmer. I especially love the weaving detail on the back of the sweater.

The key is finding a neutral-colored chunky sweater, loose enough to hang over a dress without adding too much bulk. Try this one from Urban Outfitters paired with a swing floral dress from Forever 21. Add a necklace with a bit of turquoise, like this one, for an earthy feel.

So you can still wear things from the summer even when there’s snow on the ground, I promise. This combination is the perfect way to mix warmer weather pieces with cold weather accents. And because of the loose fit of the dress and the sweater, you don’t need to worry about sacrificing style for comfort. The slouchy sweater over the dress embodies the whole “I just threw this on” look. I mean, just look at how effortless this Fashionista makes it look. Follow her lead and give this comfy combo a try!
