How to Winterize Using Knits


This skirt is a classic spring piece: it’s ivory, silk, light and flowy. It may not seem obvious to wear it in the fall or winter, but the solution to that? Knits. They are perfect for winterizing your most summery pieces. Especially the affordable and surprisingly fashion forward Old Navy sweaters. This camel color sweater from Old Navy is a must for fall. The color is perfect for transitioning your summer pieces into cold weather looks, and the shape is classic enough to go with just about anything. Try it with your midi and maxi skirts, or even floral printed denim, as you’ll see below.

Want to be able to wear your floral print jeans or white pants into the fall and winter seasons? Just use knits to winterize them. The thicker texture of sweaters helps make these items cold weather appropriate.  Just add a few more fall touches like booties or leather details, and the look will completely transformed. This play on a cable knit sweater from Old Navy has great texture for winterizing your summer pieces. I was also shocked to find this gorgeous gray sweater with leather detail at Old Navy. Can you believe it’s only $39.94?? It looks so luxe!
