When winter rolls around, we tend to automatically bid a brief adieu to our favorite summer staples. Gone for a few months are our shorts, sandals, spaghetti-strap tops, favorite summer dresses, you name it, so layers and more layers quickly replace them alongside our essential stock of winter gear. However, when it comes to said layers, those dresses you were going to forget about until further notice can actually come quite in handy.
Instead of surviving the cold days with oversize sweaters, turtlenecks, and fleece pullovers—which are extremely practical but can get pretty monotonous pretty quick—get creative this season and add your dresses into the mix as well. You’d be surprised what a fitted turtleneck or an oversize sweater can do to your favorite dress, whether it’s an off-the-shoulder style or one of your trusty silk dresses.
Today, we’re here to show you how to wear every dress in the winter without sacrificing your warmth or your comfort. Whether you’re finally ready to try the dress-over-pants trend or are wondering how many layers can you put on without looking bulky, the five looks ahead will inspire.
