This Runway Styling Hack Will Let You Wear Your Summer Dresses in Winter
If you're the type of person who spends her Winter struggling to put together a frigid-weather-appropriate outfit but meanwhile has a closet full of Summer-ready sundresses and flitty cocktail frocks just collecting dust, you're in good company. It seems the designers of New York Fashion Week feel your pain and have found a surprisingly simple, why-didn't-we-think-of-it-sooner solution.
The Fall 2015 runways have introduced a layering trick that lets you winterize whatever warm-weather item you've got by simply layering it over a turtleneck top. (Need more proof that the turtleneck is a wise style investment? Just check out this emerging Fashion Week trend.)
A sexy leather cut-out dress? Just put a turtleneck under it. A sparkly sequined cocktail dress? Just put a turtleneck under it. A printed strapless jumpsuit, a silky beach-ready kaftan, a neon bubble mini-dress? Just put a turtleneck under it.
Pros like Thakoon, Jill Stuart, and Mara Hoffman have proven just how versatile this turtle-necking technique is. So, follow suit and start wearing your favourite Summer pieces in Winter without fear of freezing.
