wintry-chic or cozy they can be with the right accessories and layering combinations. In fact,
they are among the most versatile of clothing pieces and hold up well in even cold weather when
paired up with outer layers including pea coats, blazers, tweed jackets, and tights tights.
While the right length coat or sweater/cardigan adds a sophisticated element to a dress,
inner layers can often be more creative and comfortable. For example, pulling a solid, sleeveless
dress over a ribbed turtleneck or even a basic long-sleeve allows you to control how much
bundling you want since you can choose to add an outer layer if you wish. Knit tights with
geometric or floral design that are often too warm for summertime are totally appropriate for
adding some creativity and fun to a knit dress.
Other accessories like scarves, hats, gloves, and boots are free-for-all after you’ve
established a warm but still feminine look. Speaking of boots—it’s that much easier to show off
the newest footwear of the season, which is especially wonderful with the variety boots in
fashion, from cute little booties to sexy, over-the-knee leg warmers! With or without tights,
dress-and-boots combinations allow you to show off your legs, even when it’s brisk outside.
Finally, dresses can serve the same purpose they do when the sun’s out: add elegance and
flare when it’s most needed! Holidays inevitably result in friend-and-family gatherings galore,
which means you need to look your best. The deep, vibrant colors of the season, like satin red
and jewel-tone green, are perfect for those holiday parties and family reunions. Add a sensual
edge to your style with the animal prints that are in style right now; they look at home when
coupled with leather and fur, faux or real.
Don’t overlook the many ways you can take advantage of winter fashion dresses this
season, many of which can work year-round. Easy to dress up or dress down for the casual date,
day at work or an elegant holiday event, they are sure to be one of your most-used and eyecatching pieces.
