Business Attire for All Seasons

Most people have two sets of clothing; Winter and Summer.  In this post I will show you how you can take Summer Dresses and turn them into Winter Business Wear.  The best part is you won't spend as much money and you can save room in your closet.  Most of these dresses just need a few accessories in order to make them go from Summer Business Attire to Winter Business Attire. 


This neutral tan dress is a perfect candidate, it doesn't have to much going on so you can add accessories without over doing the outfit.  Summer: Try closed toe pumps and if need be some very sheer nude pantyhose.  Winter: Try adding a dark colored blazer or cardigan, then add some semi opaque tights or pantyhose along with some ankle length boots.

Light grey colors are warm enough to wear in the winter and summer.  Summer: Add some pumps or fancy sandals (depending on how strict your office is about open toe shoes).  Winter: Add a blazer or cardigan to keep warm, then since the dress length is long try some solid opaque thigh highs.

Another warm tan color, black belt helps bring this into a wintery look.  Summer: Some patent leather pumps would complete this look.  Winter: Try a black blazer with the ruffle top hanging out slightly.  Then add some sheer black pantyhose and complete the outfit with some ankle length boots. 

Great winter dress that can also be worn in the summer months as well.  Summer: Keep it simple and add a pair of pumps or try some ankle length boots.  Winter: Add a black cardigan, sheer black pantyhose and ankle length boots.

Navy is my new favorite color, this looks professional and serious all in one.  Summer: Pair this with gold accented, grey or navy pumps.  Winter: Add a gray blazer, gray ankle length boots and some sheer light gray or navy pantyhose.

Amazing business dress, love the powerful red color with the small waist defining belt.  Summer:  Leave as is- PERFECT.  Winter: Change to closed toe pumps or ankle length boots and add a black blazer or cardigan.


Winter white meets light summer gray.  Summer: Pair with gray shoes that match the belt or remove the belt and add a fun color with matching shoes.  Winter: Replace with black belt or leave belt off all together, add black blazer or cardigan, sheer black pantyhose and black shoes.
