Now and Later – Full-Skirted Dress

It’s time for more Now and Later with a look at the Full-Skirted Dress.

Spring/Summer: Here is how I wore this classic hit, the full-skirted dress for summer. The bright and bold print went well with simple yet feminine accessories. It was a great look for wearing out to Sunday brunch on the patio of The Lane. I truly love the retro vibe of the dress but because it is sleeveless and fairly low-cut in the front, you wouldn’t think it could make the transition to the coming cooler weather.

Autumn/Winter: There are so many things I love about the cool weather version of this look. I love that it still maintains the retro and feminine vibe but in a fresh and different way. I also love being able to add a bit of colour to cooler days. Just because the weather gets colder, days shorter and skies more grey, doesn’t mean my wardrobe needs to be all about dark or drab colours.

Just as I selected the blue grey handbag in the Summer version to bring out the grey in the dress, I have launched my winter look from that colour as well. I’m wearing a grey pair of tights and a blue-grey cardigan to layer up and stay warm. But just to prove I am not going quietly into the cold, I have opted to wear a pair of my orange open-toe heels, and orange bag, belt and scarf. The orange belt is again both retro and current worn outside the cardigan and it helps to highlight my waist.

Accessories: I’m still wearing the white watch and orange bangle from the Summer look for this cooler look. I’ve added a pale green bangle just to continue the colour from the skirt to my wrist and then onto the scarf. The bangles were a Christmas gift from my Fashion Sister from Another Mother and the scarf was a b-day present from my now Fashionista Friend, Sarah.

What do you think of my Autumn/Winter transitional look for this full-skirted dress? Is it a winner both now and later?
