I’m back with another dress layering post because I’m that committed to rocking my dresses all cold season long (see more tips here). And, it is totally doable. Using an under-$30 midi dress, I’m sharing just how easy dress layering is when it’s cold outside.
Layering outfits is an easy way to make a look more visually interesting. So, when it’s necessary to layer, outfits are so much cooler. Layering without adding unnecessary bulk though? That is always the tricky part.
What I’m Wearing:
1. Tights are a must
Perfect wintry weather looks begin with tights, especially when wearing dresses. On days that are seriously cold, tights under pants might become necessary too. Under dresses, though, tights add an essential and stylish layer of warmth.
2. Boots are your best friend
From ankle boots to knee-high boots, no shoe can hold down your perfectly layered look like a complementary pair of boots. In this look, I went for my new favorite high ankle boots.
3. A coat (or two) always works
Layering on a coat is an obvious way to stay warm, but a coat can also adds texture, dimension, and hence loads of interest to your look. This season, you can go the extra mile by doubling up on your coats (more on that here).
4. Scarves are essential
A chunky scarf is such an essential layer. It protects your neck (and perhaps even your face and head). With the right scarf, you can add color, print, and texture to your outfit. I went for a monochromatic vibe with my scarf.
