Winter break for your favorite summer dress? Well no, wear it! There is always a way to wear a summer dress in winter at least if it’s a timeless (preferable black) dress. Usually, I shy away from wearing a maxi dress in winter especially if it has a thinner more summery material. This time I wanted to challenge myself (am I the only one that doesn’t experiment with their wardrobe in winter?) to style this Shilla the Label maxi dress for the cold Dutch weather.

Obviously, I had to use some more layers but instead of wearing stockings I opted for my black skinny jeans with a raw hem. Since I wanted the back detailing of the dress to stand out no matter how many degrees it’s outside my white turtleneck made for the perfect contrast and extra layer. I added my beloved cowboy boots, the plaid H&M trend coat and my Celine lookalike. And I was done! It wasn’t all that difficult really and made me think about trying to style more summer pieces for winter in the future. I will also be showing you the dress in proper summer weather soon – don’t you worry!



What are your tips n tricks to style a summer piece in winter?

  2. Das Kleid hast du wirklich sehr gekonnt kombiniert. Ich finde es manchmal schwierig Kleider unter Pullis zu tragen – es sieht auch schnell mal lächerlich aus. Aber von deinem Look bin ich wirklich begeistert.

  3. Love this outfit and the colour combos here! I love layering summer dresses with polo-necks and long sleeved tops this time of year, and you have styled this so effortlessly 🙂 x
