How to style your spring dress two ways: Day to night

SNAP, false alarm! Feels like winters back.

Don't be too quick to put your jumpers away, keep them to the front of your cupboard so you can layer your spring dresses.

There is so much morning, sun temptation to put away your knits BUT don't do it yet.

I went on a little spring, dress shopping spree two weeks ago. I wanted to stock up on some fresh dresses, ready for spring. I found this one from Ally. It has quickly become my go-to as it is SO versatile.


1. How to style it for day

As it is still chilly, I layered this cute knitted jumper over the top this dress. It's an easy weekend solution if you are heading to brunch or lunch.

The key to layering knits over dresses is to:
  • layer it with a finer knit (so you don't look bulky)
  • choose one that is fitted (again so you don't look bulky)
  • wear a belt (so you can give yourself a waist)

Dresses are SO easy (I can picture you nodding at the screen while you read this). If you have a good range of black boots, sandals and pumps, you'll be set.

2. How to style it for night

In this case, less is more. With this printed dress you don't need much, so let it do the talking, red pumps or over the knee boots will do the trick and keep you warm.

Look at how fancy this dress is now just by swapping out the boots (ankle to over the knee) and getting rid of the knitted jumper??

Two completely different looks with ONE dress. 

If you want to bring out your spring dresses (and be warm), try layering with a knit you can still look cute!
