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.
