As the weather transitions from gloomy winter to sunny spring, we're on the lookout for new ways to wear our favorite frocks and adapt them to that in-between weather. Sure, one solution is to add or remove a jacket or sweater, but we’re in the mood to get even more creative! Here are three of our favorite bloggers showing us how to put a unique spin on some darling Ruche dresses.

Alycia Grayce of Crowley Party looks way too cute our Dear Creatures sweater dress! To keep warm this winter, she layered this cozy frock with skinny pants and added black boots and a structured hat to tie the look together. Instead of styling this printed dress with busy jewelry, she completed her ensemble with a pop of color on her lips. We’ll try transforming our dresses into tunics like Alycia Grayce next time the weather’s too chilly for tights to cut it!

Sara of Swing the Day Away showed off this burnt peach dress in a lovely greenhouse setting! We love how she layered her look to add the polka dot collar and finished the outfit with a mint-green skinny belt, suede kitten heels, and a vintage-inspired necklace for an assortment of colors and textures. It may be time for us to revisit the monochrome dresses in our closets -- there are so many styling options for dresses without prints!

We love how Jessica of The Steele Maiden made this striped dress her own by layering it with a chambray shirt for an incredibly unique twist. After adding a classic braided belt, she accented her look with pops of color: a vintage scarf, a yellow clutch, and cute blue pumps. We can’t wait to create a similar look with stripes of our own!

What's your favorite way to change up your dress styling? Do you have any creative layering tips for dresses?
