Tips on How to Layer Dress for Winters

Revamp your summer dresses and create aesthetic winter looks. We all prefer investing in clothes that can be reused and re-worn in different ways. Well, a dress is one of those investments that keeps on giving. When it comes to cold weather dress outfits, here are a few tips you need to keep in mind to create the perfect winter outfit –

  • Pair flowy dresses with thigh-high boots and overcoats. It looks super chic and classy while keeping you comfy and warm. Flowy dresses have a volume of their own, so make sure that the coats and boots are minimal. You can also pair flowy dresses with button-down cardigans for the light winter season. Wearing a high neck underneath the dress is also a great option.
  • For bodycon and fitted dresses, wearing sweaters and pullovers over it gives the illusion of a skirt instead of a dress. This is a really good way to re-wear your dresses differently. Again, for footwear, boots go well. You can also pair it with sneakers and complete the look with a beret. The look gives off French vibes and is a head-turner!
  • Talking about cold weather dress outfits; short dresses can be paired with woolen stockings and thigh-high boots. Add a cute woolen cap and gloves to keep you warm in the chilly weather. Round off the look with a long coat or blazer.
