Some of us are simply not pants-girls. We adore the ease and comfort of dresses for any event, day or night. But what do we do when the weather becomes cold, and a dress just won’t do!? Our bare knees and shivering arms would appear completely out of place in the frigid weather, not to mention the frost bite! But don’t worry, brilliant style icons and fashion bloggers have been sneakily incorporating dresses into their winter ensembles for years. It’s as though Christmas arrived early! Here are some of our favourite ways to wear winter dresses.
A Maxi Dress
Channel your inner Mary Kate and Ashley with this boho-chic and toasty outfit. If a leather jacket isn’t warm enough, pair your favourite black maxi with a cropped peacoat or cropped peacoat to transition it into winter. To keep the ensemble from seeming unattractive, avoid wearing a bulky or long jacket. Put on your favourite flats or shoes.
Featuring Faux Fur Accents
Something about (fake) fur can make every outfit feel wintry and comforting. To stay warm and beautiful, pair your favourite minidress with a fur jacket or vest. Pair with boots or tights to keep your bottom half warm, and head to Starbucks feeling cosy, warm, and extra chic.
Layered Over A Long-Sleeve Turtleneck
Turtlenecks are stylish and traditional on their own, so why not mix one with a shift dress? The perfect cold-weather outfit. Accessorize with crisp and clean accessories like as boots and a structured bag.
Wearing Black Tights
While this is perhaps the most obvious trick you’ve known since your mother matched your dress to your tights in kindergarten, the appropriate styling hints may elevate the appearance from basic to trend-setting chic. Make sure the dress has a mini- or midi-length hem; anything in between will seem heavy and odd. The most straightforward approach to looking fantastic in tights is to wear all black for a classic style. If you want to deviate from black, make sure the colours are still winter hues and that there is some black in the top part to match the tights (like Olivia’s jacket’s black lining). To avoid seeming too cluttered, make sure the jacket and dress are similar in colour and length.
When summer comes to an end, you don’t have to put away your favourite slip dresses or flowy maxis; throw on an oversized sweater and combine with boots for the perfect winter look for coffee with friends or Christmas shopping.
Combine a Midi Sweater Dress and a Long Coat.
The best thing about a midi sweater dress is that you’re completely encased in wool from head to toe; it’s like leaving the home in your cosiest blanket! On top, a long coat or jacket offers an additional layer of warmth and paired with heeled shoes enhances the entire ensemble.
Over Black Trousers
Have you not heard? Black pants have replaced tights, but they’re warmer and more comfortable. Wearing a long tunic in a warm material, such as knit, makes the outfit suitable for winter. Make sure the black pants are made of durable material, such as denim or leather. Add sneakers for comfort (and to stroll over the snow without ruining your shoes!).
Combined with Over-the-Knee Boots
Your favourite cold weather shoes are also a key to extending your dress season into winter. Wear a dress that hits just above the top of the boot, and pair it with a jacket or coat that is the same length (and colour!) as the dress for added sexiness.
The days are getting shorter, but that only means one thing: the evenings are getting longer, and the celebrations are about to begin! Richer colours accompany autumn trends, and as winter approaches, you’ll want to be the star of the winter gala in a gown that will take their breath away. Whether you’re looking for a formal winter dress or a fun winter party dress for all those end-of-year festivities, the Goddiva Winter dresses have you covered.
