How to Winterize a Sundress

How to Winterize a Sundress

We’ve had really beautiful weather for the last few weeks. Spring has arrived in Northern California! All the trees are blooming and the sun is warm. Last week, we had a semi-dressy afternoon event, where I knew I would swelter in my standard winter clothes. I decided to pull out a sundress and winterize it.

I wear very few patterns but this dress spoke to me at a Trina Turk event last year. My friend Kim, of “Northern California Style”, arranged the event and introduced me to colorful, Trina Turk clothes!

Accessories and color help a sundress look appropriate on a warm winter day.

Burgundy suede flats, black handbag, and black cardigan help this dress look more season appropriate. With a pattern as busy as this, I would only add solid color accessories with very little texture.


Accessories are an easy way to winterize a colorful sundress.

I’ve had the silk cardigan and handbag for years. This bag was designed when Tom Ford was the designer at Gucci. It’s a treasure to me! I firmly believe accessories can be timeless.

      Thanks Andrea. This dress is very unusual for me because of the bright color and pattern but I love it. It just goes to show we should try new things.

    Jennifer, I forgot you got this dress! I thought this print was one of the coolest and the dress was so pretty on you. I love how you added the Gucci bag and cardi! Why not have fun with it? I need to try this with my summer frocks. I wish you could come to this year’s event…You’re such a good model! Thanks for linking to me.. xo Kim
