Versatile Dresses

Looking for details and ways to diversity your dress wardrobe? Isme is providing all the details needed for a no-brainer way to dress.

From Summer To Winter: Most Versatile Dress Styles

Are you someone who packs away the summer wardrobe in exchange for winter clobber as soon as the first leaf falls off the tree in September? Likewise, do you replace your winter wear for all those summery tops, dresses and sandals, a little too prematurely at the first sign of May? To save you the time and bother of the twice annual task of making your wardrobe season specific, you may be pleased to learn that there are some dresses that are perfectly suited to both summer and winter months, providing you know how to wear them of course.

Short, Floral Dresses

There is no image quite like the short floral dress to conjure up those happy feelings of summertime. We all have our favorite short floral dress and the good news is that one of our most treasured items of our wardrobe needn’t be forgotten about for eight months of the year.

To create a slightly alternative and bohemian winter look, wear your short floral dress with a pair of thick tights or some leggings, a pair of flat and chunky boots that come mid-way up the calf and a warm, cozy cardigan complete with belt or tie.

The Tunic Dress

Tunic dresses might be considered to be comfortable and stylish attire for the summer but contrary to the common belief that our gorgeous little tunic dresses should be flung to the back of the wardrobe come September, with a little shrewd accessorizing and creative designer flair, we can get away with wearing them every month of the year.

Some tunic dresses are specifically designed for the colder weather. These feature long sleeves as opposed to short ones and are made from thicker and warmer materials including sheepskin. Summer tunics can also be worn in the winter if paired with thick tights or leggings and some stylish boots. You could even layer a long-sleeved bodice-top underneath to give your arms some protection and throw a cardigan over the top for some extra warmth.

Strapless Dresses

The thought of wearing a strapless dress in the winter fills you with cold shudders, right? The good news is with some clever use of layers, such as wearing a long-sleeved top or turtleneck underneath and chucking a chunky cardigan over the top, you can transform your favorite summertime frock into an alternative outfit for the winter. Don’t be afraid to experiment with the layers you choose and always remember to keep your legs protected from the cold with thick tights or thermals.
