Winter weather has made its way and some of our closets may not reflect the shift in seasons quite yet. Most of us need to get a little creative when it comes to transitioning our wardrobe to reflect the festive and chilly season. Our winter party dresses may need a few extra pieces to layer on as we head out to the next event. Have you packed away all of your big coats and scarves? Does your closet consist of sundresses and shorts?

Your long strapless dresses and short cocktail dresses might need a little extra assistance in keeping you warm!
In order to make a smooth transition try to not to pack away all of your lighter pieces like cardigans and thin shawls. Sometimes, when the weather is slightly confused and we find ourselves in the transition period of seasonal change, chilly days may surprise us when we are not quite ready. By keeping lighter cardigans and shawls in our closets year round, you will always be ready no matter where you are headed. Try to keep lighter pieces that are neutral in tone, so you don’t have trouble matching your dresses and clothing. If your storage is not within an arm’s reach, you will appreciate having these versatile cardigans on hand until you are ready to completely make the seasonal switch. With a dress like our Black and White One Shoulder Ruched Bust Rhinestones Cocktail Dress a black cardigan or thin scarf will be the perfect way to keep warm on a slightly chilly night.
Saying goodbye to your light summer clothes and making room for your cozy winter pieces is not a task that should be rushed. We recommend that you designate a day where you don’t have to be pressed on time when transitioning for the cooler season. With a generous time slot for the job, you can ensure that you organize thoroughly so that your closet is as functional as possible all winter long.
For the clothes that you are packing away for the time being, try storing your pieces in clean plastic containers with airtight lids. This will ensure that your clothes are clean, and avoid dust and other pests while they are waiting for the summer sun to return. If you opt for thinner plastic containers, you can even store some of your clothes under your bed for easier access.
Lastly, make sure you wash all of your clothes prior to putting them away for storage. This is important, even if you don’t’ think they are dirty. Clean clothes will keep away pests from ruining your favorite pieces.
