Some of us just don’t like wearing pants. Dresses for any event, day or night, are our favourites because of their comfort and ease. But what should we wear when the temperature drops and a dress just isn’t going to cut it anymore? In the winter, we’d appear ridiculously out of place with bare knees and trembling arms — not to mention the risk of frostbite. But don’t panic, fashionistas and bloggers have been finding creative ways to include dresses into their winter ensembles for a long time now. Like Christmas has come early! Here are some of our favourite ways to wear winter dresses during the colder months.
A Sweater tucked in
Adding an oversized sweater and boots to your favourite slip dress or airy maxi dress is all it takes to transform it into the perfect winter ensemble for coffee with friends or holiday shopping.
A Midi Sweater Dress and A Long Coat Are A Great Match.
When you wear a midi sweater dress, you’re like walking out of the house in the cosiest blanket, because you’re practically covered from head to toe in wool! To provide extra warmth, a long coat or jacket can be paired with a pair of heeled shoes.
On Top of Black Jeans
What’s that you say? Tights have been replaced by black pants, but they’re a lot more comfortable and warm. With a long tunic in a warm material such as a knit, the outfit is now suitable for the winter. Denim or leather should be used for the black pants, which should be well-fitted. In order to keep your feet warm and dry while walking in the snow, wear a pair of sneakers.
Wearing Knee-High Boots
You may wear your favourite winter shoes all year round if you know how to style them correctly. The key to making a dress look extra polished is to wear a jacket or coat that’s the same length (and colour!) as the dress.
A Maxi Dress with a Coat in the Same Colour Family
Inspire yourself with an outfit that’s equal parts bohemian and cosy, à la Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. If a leather jacket isn’t warm enough, a cropped peacoat or a leather jacket can be layered over your favourite black maxi dress. To avoid making the ensemble look ugly, avoid wearing a bulky or long jacket. Flats or sneakers will look great with this dress.
Accented with Faux Fur
You can’t go wrong with a little (fake) fur in your wardrobe. Keep warm and fashionable at the same time by pairing your favourite minidress with a faux fur jacket or vest. Put on a pair of boots or tights to keep your legs toasty, and then head to Starbucks for your morning hot cocoa in style.
Over a Turtleneck with Long Sleeves
When it comes to matching a turtleneck with a shift dress, you can’t go wrong. Perfect for the colder months. Booties and a structured tote bag complete the look.
Tights in Dark Black
As simple as it may seem since your mother matched your dress and tights in elementary school, the appropriate styling tricks may elevate this outfit from basic to fashion-forward. In order to avoid seeming heavy and awkward, make sure the dress’s bottom is either a mini or midi length. All black tights are the easiest method to achieve a classic style in tights. To avoid looking like Olivia, make sure the colours are still wintery (meaning no bright or neon hues) and that the top half of your outfit has a lining in black to match your tights. To avoid looking cluttered, keep the jacket and dress in the same family in terms of colour and length.
Even though the days are getting shorter, the evenings are getting longer, and the celebrations are ready to begin! When winter comes around, you’ll want to be the winter ball’s belle in a gown that leaves everyone breathless. The Goddiva Winter dresses have you covered for all of your end-of-year activities, whether you’re looking for a formal winter dress or a fun winter party dress.
