In search of an effective form of trans-seasonal dressing, we’re extending the shelf life of our slip tops and dresses by transforming them into winter appropriate pieces. A long or short-sleeved figure-hugging turtleneck worn under a silk blouse or dress adds a chic nonchalance that also promises to keep you suitably covered up. Whatever’s lurking in your wardrobe — the maxi with the plunging neckline, a slim shift, or a 90s apron dress — it’s all appropriate for the occasion. For a preppy finish, there’s no saying you can’t pair the look with a button-up shirt and collar for a bad-girl-gone-good approach. The key here is to counter the sexiness with a touch of schoolgirl sweet — a simple stroke of layering genius, winter-proofing high summer staples.
