Hey everyone! If you’re a regular reader, you know that I live in Michigan. We often have a 6 month winter, so just because it’s March doesn’t mean it’s spring here. But, I really want to wear the cute spring dresses I bought!
Fortunately, I have several tricks to make a spring dress work for this time of year! This adorable dress works well with my ribbed turtleneck underneath because it has some stretch. This is such a cute look for me and even though I’m not as covered up as usual, the dress hangs well without clinging that I feel comfortable with this option.
I really like the material of this dress too. The size of the pattern is spot-on and camouflages waistbands and seams. The material doesn’t wrinkle at all (believe me, it was in a pile yesterday right before we did these photos and I did not have to iron it!). A bonus in my book!
This next option is pretty basic with my favorite long sweater you’ve seen before here. This pattern and color goes so easily with all of my black items, so I had many candidates of sweaters or jackets for this option.
Here I’ve topped it with my favorite top (more size options available here in petite) from this winter that you’ve seen before here. The dress is a sheath style (I hate that name. If you own horses you know why!) with a straight skirt, so it works well under a peplum style top like this.
Plus, wearing a dress as a skirt would also be a great option if you’re doing a capsule wardrobe (like we discussed in the last post) to get more outfits out of a few items.
So, I hope this helps you wear those spring dresses without waiting on Mother Nature! Have a great week!
