Hi Everyone,

The festive season is over and new year has really begun but what happens to all those lovely party dresses? The cute items you carefully chose, that are now lonely in your wardrobe…

Fortunately one of this Winter’s biggest trends also converts itself to the best ever Winter wardrobe hack. Making it possible to continue to wear your party dresses every day. Keep reading to find out more.


The Best Ever Winter Wardrobe Hack

This little dress by Ganni was a favourite during the festive season. You can eat as much as you like without it showing a bit – hehe!

Thanks to this seasons sweater trend I will keep on wearing the dress throughout Winter but simply styled a little differently. Adding a sweater works for most dresses and can give them such a new look that no one will ever guess you are actually wearing the same dress you wore to the Christmas party…

Nothing like a good wardrobe hack if you ask me!

Boots, sweater and a scarf and new look here!

The trick is in making sure the sweater is the right length to get the overall proportions and look right. Longer sweater for longer dress and vice versa.

As we were away for the weekend I didn’t really have the right scarf to match my outfit so I “borrowed” my hubby’s. Playing with it a bit and deciding it looked more fun with the long bits at the back. I’m sure there’s no fix rules to wearing scarves anyway.

Also a great way to pack for a few days away… one dress, one sweater and one skirt converting to three very different outfits…

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. Great packing Yvonne. Love the 3 styles you have created with your items. Being a huge fan of dresses and skirts, I can only applaud your choices. I am sure you had a great weekend. Have a great week too. Love, Lieske

  2. This is something I used to do, (wear jumper over dress for winter) and somewhere along the line I forgot about it. I will go and have a root through my wardrobe! X
