HUGE TRY-ON SUMMER CLOTHING HAUL

How to Wear Summer Dresses in Winter

Cotton shirt dresses

In the summer

A shirt dress, like the one in your friend’s closet, is cozy but at the same time daring. It is a perfect garment for meetings with your friends, visits to your parents and shopping. We use it with ballet slippers. A vest, a cross pocket, and many accessories are the fashionable companions of the dress.

In winter

It is impossible to forget your favorite shirt dress in winter because wearing shirt dresses is very fashionable at this time of year. Leggings, tight jeans not only warm the legs in cold and icy weather but also provide the necessary silhouette: the shirt hides the excessive centimeters of the waist and the kilos of the belly, while the tight pants, especially the dark ones, make the legs look even thinner. To make it comfortable to walk around town at the speed of light, wear flat high boots or uggs. Wear a short jacket that barely reaches the hips with your dress, such as a single-breasted jacket or a summer denim jacket. A short parka is also sufficient.

Never

Anything that covers the hips, like cardigans that are the same length as the dress on the shirt, tights, high-heeled shoes, boots; it’s better to wear them with other clothes.

Knit-to-the-Knee Dress

In the summer

A good solution for those who work in an office. On the one hand, the dress looks like a business, but on the other hand, it doesn’t let the body suffocate. A dress like this is not tight, does not hinder your movements and you are not hot when you wear it. It is worn with shoes, ballet skirts, and jackets.

In winter

Knitwear is usually very thin, and wearing a knitwear dress with too many other clothes makes you look too heavy. Keep a restrained style. Such a dress will look good with business accessories: thick (but not wool) socks and high boots with low heels. Choose high boots that fit your legs well. Wear the dress with a classic jacket.

Never

Rough looking fabric, loose-fitting clothes that do not contour the figure will irreversibly damage your image.

Summer silk dresses

In the summer

On festive occasions or when we have a date, we usually wear silk dresses with spikes and heels. A lace or lace scarf will protect you from the cold winds.

In winter

The main reason why we cannot wear summer dresses in winter is their incompatibility with low temperatures. But a dress made of dense silk can be worn in cold weather, as long as it is worn with wool socks, boots, and a thin heel at least seven centimeters high. Put a warm fisherman’s jacket or handkerchief over the dress. Play with a combination of different textures. Silk goes perfectly with wool.

Never

Don’t wear your dress with leggings and uggs. Do not wear it on turtlenecks or cardigans: the silk becomes bristly, which spoils the silhouette.

Silk caftans

In the summer

When it’s hot and we’re in town, we can wear silk tunic with tight summer pants. But a long silk caftan is also worn alone. Wear lightweight sandals or open-toed shoes with a silk caftan. Lightweight silk kaftans protect you from the strong summer sunlight when you are at the beach.

In the winter

Wearing a silk kaftan at home is also important. If your room climate allows you to wear lightweight clothing, wear a colorful kaftan. On grey winter afternoons it will remind you of your summer experiences.

Never

Do not wear the garment with baggy pants.

Sheath dress

In the summer

The dress is a perfect garment for young slender girls with a fine waist. The pod dress is the best option if you want to look elegant and reserved. It is usually worn with spikes, elegant accessories, and a handbag.

In winter

The predominant principle is elegance and classics. Sheath dresses are usually made of dense fabric, so you can wear them over a turtleneck sweater. The main thing is that the sweater matches or contrasts with it. You can wear the dress with a fine kersey sweater or something else made of fine fabric. The preferred cuts are the square cut or the boat cut. Choose tights with black or flesh-colored print to match the dress. Wool socks would not be suitable. Wear high-density (80 deniers) lycra pantyhose and high-heeled shoes. The higher the better.

Never

Rough-looking, eye-catching, sporty clothes, as well as knit-fishing clothes and flat shoes, spoil the elegance of your outfit.
