It’s getting colder and colder as we approach winter but that doesn’t have to mean putting away your dresses until spring. You can winterize the dresses in your closet by just adding a few key pieces. After reading this post, you’ll be able to look chic and feminine while staying warm this winter!
One of the easiest ways to add a warm layer is by wearing tights or leggings. Black tights are commonly worn with dresses throughout the season so don’t hesitate to throw on a pair when you’re heading out into the chilly air. If you want to try something different, look for tights with a pattern or design woven into them. Another way to make your dress appropriate for the cold is to add a layer over your dress. Most CollegeFashionistas probably have a blazer or cardigan that could easily be incorporated into their look plus it’s nice to have a layer that can easily be taken off if you get too hot in the classroom. Just look at how this week’s Fashionista wore her dress with navy opaque tights and a matching blazer. It’s a perfect example of how to style your dress for a cold day on campus.
You could also try wearing a sweater over your dress. This will transform your outfit and give the illusion that you’re actually wearing a skirt. It’s a great trick for Fashionistas who have a limited wardrobe (especially in the tiny dorm closets) and want to get the most out of their wardrobe. As always, accessories are very important. Sport a scarf to give off a wintery vibe. Scarves are great for adding a pop of color if your outfit is primarily darker colors. Since they come in all different styles, colors and textures, you have an endless variety to try to incorporate with your dress. To finish off the ensemble, pair your dress with tall boots and a knit hat for extra warmth!
