How to wear a summer dress in the winter is really easy. First, take your favorite summer dress and start layering! Wear some tights, booties and a chambray shirt. Tie it up to give yourself a defined waist. You can also wear a sweater over the dress and don’t be afraid to add color! A bright sweater can definitely change your mood in an instant! You can even wear a chambray shirt and a sweater for some extra warmth!
Since the weather in Chicago, changes constantly (remember last weekend when it was 70 degrees?!), I like to keep my entire wardrobe in my closet. I used to pack away seasonal items, but now I just keep everything out all the time and layer or de-layer accordingly. This way, I get more wear out of my clothes than just when they are in season, per se.
