With one more month of winter to go, it may be a bit early to break out those spring/summer dresses or purchase those new beautiful spring clothes appearing in shops.  Or is it?

Rather than impatiently waiting for warmer temperatures, why not get creative with your wardrobe and play with layers to extend the life of your wardrobe? Layering is such an effective styling technique to add interest to an outfit and also re-invigorate items which may have been relegated to the back of your closet (case in point- the zara cami worn in my previous post had been sitting in my wardrobe for a good year and half until it dawned on me to layer!)

One of the simplest tricks to wear dresses in cooler temperatures is to layer long sleeves under them. Whilst the no brainer option is to use a simple long sleeve tee, why not use something more unexpected and interesting? Shapes are quite dramatic at the moment, with flares currently trending. I’ve decided to use this as inspiration and layer this Staple the Label dress over an oversized flared shirt for a different spin on the ordinary.

Whilst I was lucky to get away with ankle boots as it was a relatively mild winter’s day (20 degrees celcius), if it is a cooler, use over the knee boots for warmth without sacrificing style. Top it off with a leather jacket for edge and you’ve successfully styled a summer dress for winter!
