Transition from Winter to Spring with This Dress

When it comes to shopping, I tend to look for things that are a little more utilitarian. I LOVE pieces that I can get multiple seasons out of rather than that super cute item that can only be worn when the sun is out at just the right time & my hair falls the right way…we all know those pieces and hopefully have worked to learn our lessons! With that philosophy in mind, I’m here to tell you that this Striped Boat Neck Dress is THE dress that you need to take you seamlessly from winter to spring. It will also take you from spring into summer and from summer to fall but today we’re gonna show how it easily goes from winter to spring!

Throw on a denim jean jacket which is a versatile must have that EVERY woman should own! The key to really making this look polished but casual is to pull the sleeves of the dress all the way through then cuff the jacket sleeves up like Zoey is doing in the photo below. This will help to slim the silhouette of the dress & jacket combo.

Time for some cold weather accessories! Slip you feet into a pair of tall gray boots like these from Calvin Klein. Gray is great because it’s a perfect neutral to lighten up any outfit and cobalt blue, black & gray are a great mix of bright, dark and light colors!
