How to Layer Dresses in the Winter

As much as I love wearing comfy sweaters, sometimes it’s fun to change up your winter outfit. Another great outfit idea for the winter involves bringing out your dresses. Yes – you heard right! Even though you are in the middle of winter, you can still wear a dress and keep warm. It’s all about how you style and layer it.

A perfect layering piece for a dress is an over-sized cardigan. A cardigan allows you to show off your dress, while still being warm and cozy at the same time. Wearing tights and over-the-knee-boots is also great to wear with dresses in the winter. It keeps your legs warm, while making a fashion statement. An extra tip to keep warm is to wear long socks underneath your over-the-knee boots. Another layering piece you can also wear is a sweater over your dress which makes it look like a cute sweater and skirt combo.

This knit dress is from Urban Outfitters. I bought it in the fall and styled it in a past blog post here. I transitioned it for the winter by wearing my Marc Fischer Ramata Over-The-Knee-Boots and my fuzzy yellow cardigan from Forever 21. This knit dress is perfect for the fall and winter. It comes in two colors – black and rust orange. I got this dress for $54, but now it is now on sale for $30! Such a great deal! My Marc Fischer Ramata boots come in three colors – black, grey, and berry. I absolutely love these boots. They are so comfortable. I literally wear them all the time. You probably remember them in this past blog post.

Since the dress and boots are black, I wanted to add color to this outfit. This yellow fuzzy knit cardigan from Forever 21 was a perfect addition to the outfit. I love that the yellow stands out. This cardigan is only $25 and comes in red and yellow. It is super soft and feels like I’m wearing a blanket. The accessory I paired with this outfit are these hot pink tassel earrings from H&M for only $10. I thought the pink and yellow went really well together and I love how these colors pop with the outfit. I love combining fun colors.

Hope everyone has a great week! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  1. Great photographs. Love how your post was clear and direct. It is perfect for this California weather to wear out at night or in the daytime.

  2. This is such a cute idea, especially living in LA — it’s not always cold enough for a chunky knit, jeans, and boots. Layering a cardigan over a dress is a nice way to not burn up when it gets warm in the afternoon, but stay warm when it cooler at night. Very cute!

  3. Adore that pop of marigold which adds so much light and chicness to this all black outfit. You look so beautiful and happy.

  4. Yes, I’m all about the OTK’s when it’s cold outside. I need to get myself some more dresses! I love doing a pop of color too when I’m wearing all black : ) You look so cute!
