I love restyling my summer clothes for the winter! This polka dot swing dress is just too much fun to twirl in to have it sitting in my closet during the cold, winter months. So, I layered the living daylights out of it with a cardigan, scarf, tights and gloves and a beret! (Hopefully, you all aren’t tired of the beret yet…because I’m still obsessed.)
This dress is actually a halter dress. Which, I’m sorry, I love you guys…but I wasn’t about to take my cardigan and scarf off to show the halter portion. I swear I’ll feature it again once it warms up.
A couple of things to note about this dress, though. Be sure to look at the size chart, and if you’re in between sizes, size DOWN. It runs rather large and the back is stretchy. I sized up and it’s a wee bit too big on me. (It does come with a belt, though, so that will help.
Also, the straps kind of lay funny when this dress is tied. I almost feel it would be better to have them sewn so they’re just regular ole straps, instead of a halter dress. If that makes sense?
The next time I wear this dress, I definitely pairing it with a petticoat too! It’s been a while since I’ve worn one…
