As the season progresses, temperatures are on a downward trend, potentially posing a challenge for styling your go-to wardrobe, particularly dresses, alongside our everyday and special occasion wear. Fear not, though—there are solutions. Instead of defaulting to another week of jeans and sweatpants, explore ideas for incorporating dresses that are ideal for colder weather.

Midi Dress

Midi dresses are an excellent go-to option for those who appreciate a below-the-knee length, offering a feminine and stylish tea hem. Selena in Hunter Green Velvet, for example, is a cozy winter-friendly twist to one of our popular year-round dresses. This style pairs perfectly with a long, chic coat or even a short bolero crop top jacket.

For more warmth, don't forget to pair it with opaque tights or leggings to keep your legs warm. Add a stylish touch by incorporating ankle boots, not only for their aesthetic appeal but also for additional coverage. Accessorize with a chic scarf and gloves to enhance both style and warmth. This way, you can enjoy the comfort of your favorite midi dress even in colder temperatures, creating a well-balanced and fashionable cold-weather look.

Wrap Dress

Wearing wrap dresses plus size, petite, or regular in the cooler months means layering them with thermal leggings or tights to keep your legs warm. Choose ankle or knee-high boots to add a stylish flair while protecting your feet from the cold. The wrap design also enables personalized adjustments for fit. For example, the Shannon Hunter Green Wrap Dress has an adjustable belt that lets you decide how much skin you want to show and you can enhance warmth by adding a belt to cinch the waist. Consider pairing the look with a tailored coat or a chunky knit cardigan for extra insulation.

To complete the look, accessorize with a stylish scarf and gloves. You can also opt for the effortless style of a petite, regular or plus size faux wrap dress, like our Lisa dress. The Lisa 2.0 Paisley Print Faux Wrap Dress for example is a floral ruched chiffon faux wrap dress. It captures the classic charm of a wrap dress with easy slip-on simplicity, accentuated by faux wrap ruching at the waist for a flattering silhouette – one of our best-sellers.

Statement Occasion Dress

There are plenty of regular, petite and plus size dresses for special occasions during the winter. When shopping consider long-sleeved or three quarter sleeve dresses to offer additional coverage. Our Floor Length Lisa 2.0 provides coverage for your arms with its elbow sleeves and extends the same coverage to your legs with its floor-length hem. Layering is also key, so complement the dress with a stylish coat or a faux fur stole for a glamorous touch. Pair the dress with opaque tights or leggings to protect your legs from the winter chill. Opt for closed-toe heels or ankle boots to keep your feet warm while maintaining a polished look. Complete the ensemble with statement jewelry and a clutch that coordinates with the cold weather cocktail dress, adding sophistication to your winter special occasion attire.

Pattern Dress

Embracing a patterned print dress in the colder months brings a touch of vibrancy to the winter wardrobe. Opt for a dress with darker hues or seasonal motifs to align with the colder aesthetic like the white and black polka dot print Liz in Polka Dot Dress. The polka dot print adds a bit of fun and variation to the typically mundane winter wardrobe, while also transitioning with ease into the warmer months. Other ideal prints for Winter are floral, striped, and abstract prints. Consider accessorizing with a solid-colored scarf or a knit beanie to balance the boldness of the print.

Sheath Dress

Wearing sheath dresses in colder months for work comes with several advantages. The structured and tailored sheath dress silhouette exudes professionalism. Our Bobbi Plum X-Neck Dress conveys sophistication and makes it an ideal choice for the workplace. Its versatility allows for easy layering, allowing you to pair it with blazers, cardigans, or chic coats for added insulation during your commute and outdoor activities.

The simplicity of a sheath dress also makes it easy to accessorize, allowing you to create a polished and put-together look effortlessly. Overall, the sheath dress balances professionalism and comfort, making it a practical and stylish choice for workplace attire in colder months.

From the timeless allure of midi dresses to the cozy elegance of wrap styles, the statement-making occasion ensembles, and the playful charm of patterns, these five wardrobe companions are your go-to solutions for navigating the frosty seasons with both style and warmth. As you embrace the chilly days ahead, let your fashion choices speak volumes. Here's to a season of comfort, confidence, and a touch of cold-weather chic.
