#WednesdayWishlist: 5 easy ways to wear summer dresses in winter


Dresses with big sleeves

You still want that poofy sleeve to bask in all the glory it deserves, so why not add a tight long-sleeved polo-neck underneath (go for neutrals like black, white and grey).

(this dress from Zara is everything btw)

Complete the look by adding a pair of heels with warm socks in the same colour as the top.

Light-weight dresses

Take this polyester blend lace-up Boho dress in yellow from Spree.co.za. It might just be a bit cold to wear on its own, but add layers and voila. Add a bomber or a denim jacket and a vest underneath for extra heat.

Wear it with some ankle boots and woolie socks.

Off the shoulder dresses

This one at from MRP is the perfect example. Upon first glance this sounds like a tricky one to layer, doesn't it? But fret not.

Simply wear your jacket as the fashion pack wears theirs - just let it hang...

And add a pair of fab thigh high boots while you're at it.

We are coveting these from H&M.
