Staples pieces such as a sleeveless dress are versatile and would be an asset to your wardrobe. Whether the dress is a structured sheath like the one in the below video or a more casual silhouette, layering beneath or on top of a sleeveless dress gives it a whole new look and feel.
Layering Underneath - T-shirts, mock-neck turtle necks, turtle-necks, and oxford shirts are great to layer underneath a sleeveless dress. It's also a way to add a pop of color if your staple piece is a neutral (gray, black, white, khaki, etc.)
Layering On Top - Blazers, cardigans, vests, scarfs, and necklaces are ideal for layering on top of a sleeveless dress. It is also a great way to transition a piece from warmer weather to the cool air or frigid temperatures.
What about your Footwear? The shoes you choose to adorn your feet will create balance and/or an extra pop of design to your ensemble. You can wear flats, high heels, boots, booties, or sneakers. You can choose different heels heights. You can match your shoes to a color in your outfit or be daring and choose another shade. The options are limitless.
The most important thing to remember when maximizing your wardrobe is to explore what is already in your closet and not be afraid to layer pieces.
