Reinventing A Wardrobe Staple: Black and White Dress

Once the weather turns colder (even though it seems to be turning warmer in London), it becomes  very hard to continue wearing summer dresses.  However, I find that many of them can be reinvented as tunics or long-line tops to give them a longer lease on life.

I have had this basic black and white dress in my closet for many years and tend to wear it with flat black sandals in the summer to ‘run around’. By adding a colorful scarf and black jeans, I have tried to reinvent this dress into an autumn appropriate outfit.  Brogues and a cross body bag are all this outfit needs to become a comfortable ‘all-day outfit’ for me. It is also that time of the year when you can bring out your light weight coats to add another dimension to your clothes.  I love this coat with its contrasting pockets – it’s fun and practical at the same time!

There is a hint of Parisian chic to this outfit that I love.  I hope you enjoy it as well and thanks for reading!
