Transitions Pt 1: The Sleeveless Dress

Happy Monday all!

Whenever I buy clothes I think primarily about sustainability.  If I can’t wear an item for at least two seasons, I’m probably not going to get it. Having an interchangeable wardrobe is essential because you’re getting more wear out of your clothes and it decreases the need to constantly replenish your closet.   Sleeveless dresses are definitely an item that you can get a lot of wear from. Plus  they  transition smoothly  from season to season.  The next time you want to wear a cardigan with  your sleevless dress, dont leave it open.  Button it up to create a crew neck sweater to wear over your dress.  Add a belt and ta da…its now a skirt!  This pretty much works on most sleeveless dresses so get creative, try it with your favorite printed or patterned sweater.

 The easiest way to transition a sleeveless  dress is by adding a blazer. But instead of  reaching for a blazer, try a fitted leather jacket. It adds instant polish and  edge to your dress but Is still appropriate for work.

    Good ideas to keep your summer dresses current. Love the jacket, I sure could wear it often here in Florida.

      Thank you! The jacket is pretty lightweight so it could be good for Florida.
