How to stay warm in a dress

Most people would think that a dress is for the summer months only – well think again! In this article we take a look at dresses for winter and, importantly, how to stay warm.

All year round

Come rain or shine, you will go the ball and you will wear a dress! Whether you have chosen from a range of maxi dresses or gone for your favourite summer lace one, you can style it for keeping warm any day of the year.

A winter wedding

With winter weddings on the up, stay warm with a leather jacket and closed toe shoes.

A firm favourite

It may seem obvious, but if you can’t bear to be parted from a favourite summer dress – check out some of these year round styles at – for the cooler months, simply add winter additions such as a hat, jacket and boots.

Style for the cold

Sweater dresses give the impression of warmth, but this isn’t always the case, so try layering for both warmth and depth. If it’s really cold, a thick fake fur coat will top it off nicely. You can even add an oversized blanket scarf if you really feel the cold.

Keep it classic

Classic striped dresses are perfect whatever the season. Think winter colours to jazz it up and create that look of warmth which is just perfect for those cooler days.

Layer upon layer

So your favourite silk dress is really absolutely too cool for school but also too cool for chilly days? Easy! Add layers and you can still wear it and keep cosy at the same time. Wear a turtleneck jumper underneath it, skinny jeans on your legs and a denim jacket over it.

The lacy look

Perfect for summer, it can also be perfect for winter too! Add a coat, a shawl and some riding boots and you will look stylish without feeling the cold.

Just because it is cooler doesn’t mean you can’t wear your favourite floral dress. Add a blazer and you can wear it to the office, pull on over the knee boots for a night out with the girls or add sheer tights for date night.

The options are endless! We hope this article has given you some inspiration for cooler days.
