5 WAYS TO DRESS UP IN WINTER
Posted: Jun 22 2018
With Winter officially upon us, the temperature is getting cooler and working out what to wear on a night out is becoming increasingly difficult.
How do you ensure you don’t compromise on your style whilst still staying warm?
With these 5 tips, of course!
Wear a leather jacket over your dress
Wearing a leather jacket over your dress gives your outfit an edge whilst adding some much needed warmth on cold winter nights. Her Likely NYC ‘Conrad Dress’ is the perfect option to combine with a black leather jacket. Style the jacket loosely draped over your shoulders and you’re ready to take on the night. Another great option to combine with your trusty leather jacket is her Yeojin Bae ‘Dasha Dress’ in White or Navy.
Wear sheer black tights under your dress
Popping a pair of sheer black tights under your dress not only keeps you warm but when combined with a dark coloured dress, helps to lengthen and slim your silhouette. Finish off the look with black pumps to create the illusion of longer looking legs. A great dress to wear with tights is her Thurley ‘Juliet Dress’ or Likely NYC ‘Rollins Dress’ in Black.
Add a Faux Fur Shrug for a glamorous night out
A faux fur shrug is perfect for a special evening out such as a cocktail party or black tie event. Combining it with a dress in a contrasting texture such as lace or silk adds interest to the overall look. Try one of her new arrivals, the ‘Faux Fur Shrug’ by Debut in Black, Navy or White combined with a cocktail or full length dress as styled below.
Wear a long sleeve dress
A long sleeve dress is a simple way to stay warm in Winter. Great options from her collection include the Thurley 'Sonnet Strapless Dress', Self Portrait ‘Guipure Lace Maxi Dress’ or the Talulah ‘Pursue Midi Dress’.
Choose a dress in a thicker fabrication
Dresses in a thicker fabrication are also a great way to ensure you stay warm on those cooler nights out. You can then simply add a jacket on top if it gets really chilly. Her Scanlan Theodore 'Crepe Knit Dresses' are perfect for this.
