Outfit Post: 1 Dress, 2 Seasons + The Impeccable Pig

 
If there's one thing I love in my wardrobe, it's a piece that can be worn season to season. After all, we've got to make the most of what's in our closet, right? When I saw this tribal print dress at The Impeccable Pig, I knew I had fallen in love with it. However, our freezing temperatures weren't exactly making this frock winter friendly. So read below on how I came up with the idea to make this bright and bold beauty February appropriate.
 


 

 



 
 
The Impeccable Pig Sherbet Tribal Print Dress (borrowed)
 
Winter:
The Impeccable Pig Do It For Love Lace Top (borrowed)
Zara Studded Booties (old - very similar from Jessica Simpson)
Simply Vera Opaque Tights
3.1 Phillip Lim x Target Mini Pashli (splurge option) || Jewelmint Audrey Earrings (similar style) || Caravelle by Bulova Rose Gold Watch c/o LuckyFABB (love this one too) || Revlon "Fuchsia Fusion" Lipstick
 
Spring:
Zara Rose Gold Metallic Pump w/ Ankle Strap (sold out - J. Crew version on sale!)
Marc Jacobs NM x Target Rose Gold Clutch (super similar style) || Michael Kors "Bradshaw" Rose Gold Watch || Blu Bijou Pearl Bangles c/o Max & Chloe || Number Rings (similar splurge)
 
 It's really fun to transition a summer piece into winter because there are so many different ways to style it. As you can see, layering is the key factor here. My thick tights and super cute long sleeve collared blouse turn this bright spring dress into a perfectly warm winter look. Originally I had wanted to do a chambray underneath (another helpful trick for spring pieces during winter) but the black top just made the outfit look much cleaner and sleeker. I think the lace detail on the collar also helped - this would be a great shirt with a pair of jeans and heels.
 
For spring, you really can't go wrong. The colors are so bold and fun so I wanted to amp them up with rose gold details like my strappy pumps and clutch. Can I just say I'm ready for spring temps?!Enough of these freezing temps already!
 
What are some of your favorite ways to transition pieces from season to season? Oh and did I mention that this dress and top are now available on The Impeccable Pig's online store?! Lucky you!

  26. I love layering summer dresses over tights and turtlenecks or under cardis in winter! You get so much more wear out of your pieces, and bring a bit of color into your winter wardrobe :-)

  27. That dress is impeccably beautiful. What a fun print, design & colors. You did a great job styling it for both seasons. I agree, it looks so sleek with the all-black. =) This boutique is lucky to have you as their own stylista model!
