We may still be in the thick of winter, but it’s never too early to start daydreaming about spring fashion. Take advantage of the best of both worlds by repurposing some of your winter standbys for a new season. Here, we picked four standard winter-wardrobe pieces and showed how to rework them in a new light.
Turtleneck Sweater + Little Mini Dress
It’s a little too chilly to take your summer sundresses out on their own, so use turtlenecks like sartorial training wheels. You can still debut a warm-weather sundress but in a way that is cozy. Play around with mixed prints or opposite color schemes: a mint green turtleneck under a red, flirty printed dress, or a nubby one under a sleeveless sundress.
In the winter, boots typically are paired with tights or layered heavily with socks. In the spring, you can debut bare legs, but you may not be able to rock sandals or open-toe footwear. Boots give summery shorts a fun edge. Experiment with barely visible socks to give the look a bit of spice.
Pair your high-waisted denim with a bathing suit worn as a bodysuit. With cool detailing and low dips, they are seductive in the most unexpected way. You can layer a coat with it or a filmy top to complete the look.
