Guest Post: Winterize Summer Dress!

9:24 AM

Hello What Jeans Likes readers! I'm Lauren, a personal style blogger at Fizz & Frosting, where I focus on budget-friendly fashion for both work and play! One of my goals for this year was to get more wear out of the items already in my closet. As a girl on a budget, I knew that it'd be the perfect way to save moolah while pushing my style boundaries at the same time. Win-win, right? One of the ways I've done this is by winterizing my Summer dresses with layers!

I started with a spaghetti strap striped dress and I added my warmest, fleece-lined tights (thanks, Urban Outfitters) and layered on a blazer. Accessories-wise I made sure to select bolder, chunky pieces to add a heaviness to the look overall.

I can't wait to winterize this dress for the weekend as well. I'm envisioning wearing boots, layering with a knit sweater, and bundling up with a chunky scarf. How do you get more wear out of your Summer clothes this time of year?
