    "Adding chunky boots, tights and jackets to summery dresses can completely change the look and take it from summer to winter," said Callie Thorpe, of From the Corners of the Curve.

    5. Turn a summer dress into a winter skirt by adding a cute sweatshirt on top.

    Wearing a pop of fur under a longer lighter jacket is a great way to might your lighter fall coats and summer dresses winter-appropriate.

    They pair best with high-waisted jeans (so your midriff doesn't get too cold!).

    12. Try a scoop or crew-neck under a jumpsuit.

    13. Invest in a great pair of opaque leggings to wear under cutoffs.
