Thrifty Threads Thursday: Winter Layering

Thrifty Threads Thursday: Winter Layering

Transitioning your summer wardrobe into fall and winter items can be really helpful when you’re trying to stay on budget. I try to make my clothes work year round by styling them differently for different seasons. It’s all about the layers. This H&M dress was one of my favorite buys this summer. I wore it with simple flats most of the time and the occasional light cardigan.


To update it for winter, I’m layering with an Italian cardigan I picked up at goodwill, fleece tights, rain boots and a decorative scarf. I threw a jacket on top for outdoors for some added warmth.

How do you transition your wardrobe? Do you use the same pieces through the year or do you have a separate wardrobe for the different seasons?

  • I love stretching my wardrobe through the seasons, too! It saves money and I miss some of my clothes if I only get to wear them for one season! I’m loving the H&M dress. I don’t have an H&M near me and I really miss finding good deals on trendy clothes!

    • we JUST got an H&M. I used to stock up every time I went to Chicago, but thankfully they opened one thats a few minutes away this summer. And now you can shop online which is great too! It used to drive me crazy that I couldn’t order anything :)

  • Nice work transitioning this summer dress into fall! I love thinking of creative ways to stretch my wardrobe too!
