Not everyone loves to rock a pant(s). Some people prefer the ease and simplicity that comes with wearing dresses for various events, either during the day or at night. What then do you do when the weather gets cold and your dress can’t give the needed covering. Your bare knee and arms suffers the inappropriate exposure to the cold, not forgetting frost bite.
Worry not, as fashionistas have been finding ways to incorporate dresses into their wardrobe for winter season. We have highlighted below ten(10) ways to wear dresses in winter:
WEAR A DRESS UNDER A SWEATER:
At the end of summer, you don’t have to pack your favorite slip dress or floating maxis; throw an oversized sweater on top, pair it with boots, and you have the perfect winter outfit for coffee with friends or Christmas shopping.
WEAR IT OVER A BLACK PANT:
Haven’t you heard? Black pants are the new tights-only they are warmer and more comfortable. Wear long tunics in warm materials, such as knitting, to make clothing suitable for winter. Make sure the black pants are fitted in a sturdy material such as denim or leather. Add the comfort of sneakers and be able to walk through the snow without ruining your shoes.
WITH THIGH-HIGH BOOTS:
Your favorite cold weather shoes are also a secret to be able to extend your clothes to wear into winter. Wear a dress that hit just above the boot, top with a jacket or coat that is similar in length and color to the dress for extra smooth.
HOW TO WEAR SHORT DRESS IN WINTER:
WITH FAUX FUR:
There is something about (faux) fur that can make any appearance feel cold and comfortable. Put on your favorite miniskirt and match it with a fur jacket or vest to stay warm and stylish. Pair with boots or tights to keep your lower half warm and pick up your morning hot cocoa at Starbucks to feel comfortable, warm and extra stylish.
HOW TO WEAR SLEEVELESS DRESS IN WINTER:
WEAR DRESS OVER LONG-SLEEVE TURTLE-NECK:
Turtleneck sweaters are so chic and classic on their own, so pairing turtleneck sweaters with a shift clothes makes for a perfect Cold weather-proper combination. You can also pair it with accessories such as boots and structured bags.
WITH A BLACK TIGHT:
While this may be the most obvious trick you may know because your mother will match your clothes with your tights in kindergarten, the right styling skills can go from basic looks to fashion trends. Make sure the hem of the skirt is a mini dress or midi dress; any length in between, looks bulky and awkward. The easiest way to look great in a tights is to pair it with all black for a classic look. However, if you want to deviate from black, make sure that the color is still the color of Winter (aka no bright colors or neon’s), and that the upper part has some black to match the tights. Make sure that the jacket and dress are same color and length to avoid too much busyness.
MAXI DRESS WITH A JACKET:
Your favorite black maxi can also go into winter by matching with a leather jacket. Try not to add a long or bulky coat to prevent the outfit from looking unflattering. Pair it with your favorite flat or sneakers.
WEAR A MIDI SWEATER DRESS WITH A LONG COAT:
The best part about midi sweater dresses is that you’re literally wrapped in wool from top to bottom;it’s like leaving the house in your most comfortable blanket! A long coat or jacket at the top adds another layer of warmth, and high-heeled booties enhance the entire outfit.
WEAR WITH A BLANKET SCARF:
You can wear your dress with a blanket scarf wrapped around your neck to keep the cold off your neck and shoulders. You can pair it with tight under and a boot or sneakers.
LAYER YOUR OUTFITS(TOP AND BOTTOM):
Another way to wear a dress in winter is to layer your outfit. You can wear a turtle neck under the dress and wear a jacket ontop. For the bottom, you can wear a skinny jeans with your boot or sneakers.
