Take a spring steal and turn it into a winter wardrobe piece.

How to turn a spring look into your winter wardrobe

We have all been there: You find an adorable spring or summer piece on sale that you NEED for your wardrobe ... but you are currently stuck in the dead of winter. How can you find a way to wear this closet addition NOW?

Styling these pieces can be a challenge because you have to find the balance of a cute outfit while somehow being practical and staying warm. That's exactly the challenge I faced when I found this linen strapless ruffled jumpsuit. Finding it on a sale rack for $6 was a steal – now I just needed to find a way to wear it during this chilly Wisconsin winter.

For this look, I decided the key to rocking this in winter was to add some layers. Pairing a mock neck body suit underneath the strapless jumpsuit not only adds warmth, but it also add some textural dimension to the look. To continue building more textures and layers to this look, I added a leather jacket and combat boots.

Finally I tied it all together with a belt, crossbody bag and a knotted headband. While it still isn't the MOST practical winter look, adding these layers have helped the jumpsuit transition into a piece in my fall/ winter wardrobe.

Keep in mind: This is on a GOOD Wisconsin winter day, sunny and in the high 30s. This wouldn't work on the bitter cold days that we can have.
