Dresses aren’t often worn in the winter owing to the chilly weather, but I’ve gathered some style tips to help you change that! When you use layers and/or accessories strategically, you can make your winter dresses warmer and more comfortable to wear.
If you want to make the most of our dresses all year, keep reading to gain ideas on how to make your dresses work for you. Yes, you can be warm and stylish when bundled up!
Don’t be shy about wearing your summer clothes! They’re actually wonderful for the cold because you can easily layer them!
Layers, Layers, And More Layers
This dress I’m wearing below is a terrific summer essential because it’s flexible cotton and sleeveless, but it’s also a great winter staple because you can layer it in so many ways!
I’m layering a long cardigan with another long duster jacket for extra warmth.
Underneath Your Dress, Wear A Long-Sleeved Shirt.
By layering a long sleeve shirt underneath your dress, you may transform your short sleeve/sleeveless dress into a winter-ready look. The warmth provided by the sleeves is both practical and fashionable.
I took it a step further by layering underneath my dress and layering a cardigan over it! If you don’t like the look of the long sleeves under the dress, this is a perfect option to hide them; simply add another layer with your jacket!
Layer Your Outerwear Over Your Dress.
The nicest part about winter attire is, of course, the gorgeous layers! Use your jackets, coats, sweaters, and blazers to layer on top of your dress. I like how this elevates the look of a dress.
Winter is the ideal time to break out your faux fur! It’s not only warm, but it also looks great!
Remember to Bring Your Vests!
Grab your vest if you know you won’t be outside for long or if you’ll be able to run inside soon. It’s much less bulky yet still keeps you warm. I adore fluffy vests, which go with everything!
Tights Should Be Replaced with Fleece-Lined Leggings.
Leggings are unbeatable. They’re cosy, and you can throw anything on top of them! In the winter, though, don’t be scared to forego the leggings! When winter arrives, it’s time to replace your tights with thicker fleece-lined leggings.
They have a similar appearance but provide far more warmth! Fleece leggings are ideal for wearing throughout the season, so it’s a versatile piece.
When the chilly weather arrives, I can’t wait to wear these leggings! I adore how soft and comfortable they are. The nicest aspect is that they are easy to wear with boots because you don’t have to worry about things bunching up as you do with jeans.
Put On a Slip Underneath
I appreciate this tip because it seems to be less prevalent these days yet is quite useful! Slips underneath dresses keep the dress fabric from sticking to your legs and add another layer of warmth in the colder months.
A basic slip is fine, but if you want to spice up your dresses, choose a slip that is a little longer and has a quirky hem, like this lace hem slip.
Wear Your Gown As A Tunic With Leather Leggings Or Denim.
I enjoy transforming some of my shorter dresses into tunic-style blouses! It’s an excellent method to make better use of goods in your closet. For a sleek look, wear them with your favourite skinny denim or leather leggings.
Wear a Sweater or Pullover Sweater Over Your Dress
This is so much fun since it transforms your dress into a skirt! Simply layer a nice pullover sweater or sweatshirt over your dress for a completely different look! This procedure can be used for both day and night attire.
It may be tempting to put your favourite dresses in the back of the closet during the colder months, but we say put your best face forward and let it snow! Sparkly mini dresses look beautiful with opaque black tights or combine your favourite midi dress with knee-length boots for a more relaxed twist on a classic. And there’s no excuse not to go for a strappy little number – combine it with a faux fur jacket or wrap and you’ll be channelling 50’s Hollywood glamour for days, dear!
