One of my morning routines is looking at my Glamour iPhone app. Although I don’t read the magazine on my phone (I still like the print version) I do look at the blogs to get some great fashion ideas. Yesterday I actually was inspired by a look I saw because I knew that I already had the pieces in my closet.
Basically the idea is to take a winter piece and make it work for spring. (Here’s my look from last December.)The execution is all in the shoes. A dark color would keep the outfit dark, so go for nude. The color, or rather absence of color helps elongate your legs. What’s cool is that the shoes make the dress look less heavy in color.
I got my dress last fall on clearance at Lane Bryant ($23) and the shoes came from Kohls on clearance ($6.99, fall 2008.) I accessorized with Jewels by Park Lane.
Until I saw the picture on Glamour I never really thought about nude shoes with this dress. I like it the way it looks. What do you think?
Would you go nude? What do you do to make a winter look transfer to spring?
