Whether it's Mother's Day brunch or a bridal shower, spring is a time to pull out our sunny dresses. But what if the weather doesn't cooperate? Fashion Stylist Susie Wright joined us to share stylish ways to cover up.
Yes, it is spring. And that means lots of events to attend from graduations, showers, birthday parties and charity events. I love helping women find just the right thing....and the good news is that currently there’s a dress for every occasion. But I do get asked over and over again, "What to wear in case it’s cold or to cover my shoulders?" I just recently heard a pashmina wrap adds ten years, and I couldn’t agree more. So, let's say goodbye to cardigans and pashmina wraps and give one of these more stylish alternatives a try.
1. A blazer. Consider layering it over a slip dress or a statement skirt. It looks best if it’s a double-breasted style. You can drape it over your shoulders for a little glamour.
2. A duster. Inspired by my daughter, I’ve wanted one since she wore to all her sorority events layered over her black dresses. Try one in a pretty color. The key is a flowy one that is lightweight.
3. A Kimono. These come in many different patterns and different lengths. Find one you love and any simple dress can be worn under. It makes for a very old-school glamorous look.
4. A leather jacket. Consider pretty colors instead of a go-to black one. But black will work too. A leather jacket works every time over most dresses and adds a little edge.
