This Runway Styling Hack Lets You Wear Your Summer Dresses Right Now
If you're the type of person who spends her Winter struggling to put together a frigid-weather-appropriate outfit, but meanwhile has a wardrobe full of Summer-ready sundresses and 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 Autumn/Winter 2015 runways have introduced a layering trick that lets you winterise whatever warm-weather item you've got (and wear it right this minute) by simply layering it over a poloneck/turtleneck top. (Need more proof that this style is a wise style investment? Just check out this emerging Fashion Week trend.)
A sexy leather cutout dress? Just put a high-necked, long-sleeved top under it. A sparkly sequinned cocktail dress? Same thing. A printed strapless jumpsuit, a silky beach-ready caftan, a neon bubble minidress? Whatever the dress, this season designers are making it Winter ready in the easiest way possible.
Pros like Thakoon, Jill Stuart, and Mara Hoffman have proven just how versatile this turtlenecking technique is. So, follow suit and start wearing your favourite Summer pieces today without fear of freezing.
