wear it: long dresses in winter – reader request

All Saints maxi dress
***
1. Topshop polo neck jumper. Layer a sleeveless maxi dress over a skinny jumper. Tip: Make sure the armholes are high and the neck is tall for a clean look. Alternatively wear an oversized jumper on top and turn the dress into a maxi skirt. The colour of this one would work perfectly with charcoal.
***
2. Warehouse cardigan. Layer a chunky knit cardi on top. I picked a similar hue to keep the look cohesive. A wide sleeve balances out the long skinny black jumper sleeves (or go with a long sleeved cardi to double up the arm warmth).
***
3. Elisanero ankle boots. Add boots with just enough lift to take the dress off the ground. Wear flat boots instead if the dress stops around your ankles.
***
4. Devoe beanie. A staple for both sexes. I live in them right now (when it’s not a fedora)
***
5. Oak fingerless gloves. Keeps you warm while rummaging in your bag all day.
***
6. Rebecca Minkoff drawstring bag. The dress is long and lean so go with a long strap to continue that relaxed feel. A wine, emerald or deep purple bag would also work here and is a change from the usual black. Finish with wool tights and/or a neck scarf.

If anyone has any ‘how to wear’ questions, let me know in the comments or on Facebook where I found this one. I’m no ‘fashion industry expert’ but I’ll definitely take a stab at it.

    Just one more thing, if this applies to you, how do you overcome the winter blues? I am just tired of going outside and being cold all of the time.

    The maxi is gorgeous, I’d probably wear it with the Warehouse cardi, the Elisanero boots and the Rebecca Minkoff bag.
    Even if your not some expert, you did a hell of a good job!! πŸ™‚

    I wanted to try doing it this winter but I’m just scared I’ll be freezing. Maybe when spring rolls around I’ll make an attempt in a soft palette with a military flare. Idea’s been brewing in my mind forever!

    I’ve thought about wearing that Foley & Corinna dress I got from your shop so many times during the cold season. Pair it up with some thick tights, a cropped cardigan and ankle booties and I’d be good to go!
    Since I started a blog not too long ago, maybe that will be my incentive for a post πŸ™‚
