I live in Colorado and it can get damn cold. Most of these won't work that well. Example, tomorrow is 1/31/17, the temps are predicted to be 21/7 F and 1/1/18 27/10 F.

I'm always trying to figure out ways to restyle my summer dresses for my winter wardrobe, but I really love these dress tutorials. I love any dress you can pair with tights!
