French Connection UK crop jacket (old) / Club Monaco dress (old) / Alexander Wang boots (old)
Club Monaco scarf / Club Monaco gloves
I had a “I have nothing to wear” moment this week, so I rummaged through my spring/summer wardrobe that I stored away in two large-sized luggages in my closet. It was very exciting going through my colourful collection and had an instant inspiration with an old timeless maxi dress I resuscitate every now and then. So that’s when I had the thought, “how do I make this work for winter?”
Layers, layers, layers. It’s cold out, so layering up is the only way to brave the frigid weather. Begin with the star piece, the maxi dress. Then style it with a jacket, sweater or cardigan. I did this crop jacket to elongate my petite body because a long jacket would be overwhelming. Next, protect your legs. Stay warm with nude, sheer or opaque tights – whichever you’re in the mood for. Lastly, keep your feet toasty with ankle booties, knee-high or even a pair of oxfords if there isn’t much snow on the grounds.
P.S. don’t forget to bundle up with a scarf and hat!
