Indian Summer….with your dresses!  SWEATER, BELT & BOOTS

We are all looking to create new looks with the wardrobe we have and save money, by getting more wear out of the clothes we already own. This can be easier than you think…really!

If you are like me, you are obsessed with dresses in the summer.  Maxis, minis, wrap, shirt, tunic, baby doll…..they are so easy and fun to wear, pack and wash. I have dozens of summer dresses and I hate to say good-bye when the temp drops and I have figured out how I don’t have to.  There is a simple fashion formula that can be added to most summer dresses for immediate fall appropriateness.


Simply add a sweater, a belt and boots to your summer dresses for an instant fall update. You can also add tights, a scarf, necklace, etc., but the must-do components are a sweater, belt and boots because these add texture and the heavy, more covered feeling of fall.  You can choose any type of sweater – a cardigan, nubby pullover, fisherman – belts and boots you already have in your closet. This look can totally work with Maxi dresses and even that bridesmaid dress you wore last June.

Try out the formula!  It’s a great way to get more wear from your wardrobe workforce!  You can do it.
