Creating Great Winter Looks with Your Favorite Summer Pieces

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

I will admit that I sometimes become a little attached to my clothes.  There are certain pieces that I fall in love with and I do not want to retire them just because the season is wrong.  I want to keep wearing them year round because they are such great pieces.  Towards the end of the summer I was sent a package from Vera Wang with some great pieces from the Simply Vera and Princess by Vera Wang collections from the summer lines.  I loved the pieces so much that I wanted to be able to keep wearing them year round.  So I decided to put together a blog where I featured the pieces and the great fall/winter looks that I would create with these wonderful pieces to keep them in my wardrobe year round.  Plus I challenged myself to find all of the coordinating pieces from Vera Wang lines that are currently in your Kohls store.

Tips to Take Your Favorite Summer Pieces into the Winter Months

Learn How to Layer Right

Layering can be hard.  If you layer the wrong pieces together you chance looking frumpy but with the right pieces layering can be a fashionistas best friend year round.  I love this great white shirt that i received from the Simply Vera Collection.

I wanted to find the right way to wear it year round and I love it with a black pair of slim fit pants like the Skinny Ponte Pants (which I personally own and wear all of the time!!) and the Marled Lurex Cardigan.

I also think that the Tall Boots would complete this trendy look perfectly!

Moving Your Favorite Sundress into Cooler Weather

I LOVE this adorable Simply Vera sundress that I received.  I think that it is adorable and a great dress to be able to wear year round.  That being said, you would probably be pretty cold if you wore this dress in the wintertime without the right additional clothing choices.

The first thing that you should do to make sure that you are warm enough when wearing a sundress is grab a great pair of leggings.  I love this pair of brown leggings from Simply Vera. This brown Flyaway Cardigan is also great.  It would pair well with the fun colors that are in the dress.

These ankle boots would pair well with the outfit and would look great and fun throughout the fall and winter.

Use Your Favorite Tank for Work

I fell in love with this adorable Princess by Vera Wang tank top with ruffles.  This tank is perfect for more than just the teens that it was marketed to.  I think that it would look especially nice for work when paired with the right pieces.

The Simply Vera Baby Bootcut Ponte Pants and the Pointelle Flyaway Cardigan would be the perfect pieces to take this playful tank to the office.
