2. Chunky Sweaters over Summer Dresses
One way to maximize your wardrobe is to buy pieces that transition well into the next season. Right now, you can go out and find all kinds of summer dresses for cheap, they want to get rid of them so they can stock for Fall and Winter.
A big trend for Fall/Winter is to wear your short flowery summer dress, under a chunky sweater. As the weather turns colder, you can definitely add tights to your look and wear this all they way to spring!
