Let’s be honest. You usually don’t wake up and think to yourself, I want to wear a dress when it’s cold outside. Especially not if there may or may not be snow in the forecast. Lately, I’ve been mainly wearing cozy sweaters, soft leggings, and these super warm snow boots. But styling dresses in the winter isn’t as intimidating as it may seem. With a few style tips, you can wear dresses in colder weather without compromising on warmth and comfort. Here are three of my favorite ways to wear dresses throughout the winter season.

Cashmere Collared Sweater Dress

Cashmere Collared Sweater Dress / White Topcoat / Tote Bag / Suede Ankle Boots / Pearl Hoop Earrings

I love this elegant winter outfit. It would be the perfect look to wear for an evening dinner or to the office. This neutral cashmere collared sweater dress is so gorgeous. From the belted tie around the waist to the collared neckline, every detail has been thought of. A style tip for wearing dresses in the winter is to choose styles with warmer fabrics, like cashmere or merino wool; it will make such a difference. I’d style this sweater dress with a white topcoat and accessorize it with a neutral suede tote bag, suede ankle boots, and gold pearl hoop earrings.

Black Crewneck Midi Sweater Dress

Black Crewneck Midi Sweater Dress / Suede Moto Jacket / Leather Tote Bag / Bar Stud Earrings / Black Sunglasses / Leather Sneakers

A casual and cute outfit to wear on weekends. This black crewneck midi sweater dress is a great basic that can easily be styled between seasons. In the winter, you can style this versatile midi dress one of two ways, depending on what the weather is like where you are. If it’s not too chilly, style it with a suede moto jacket as I did here, or wear it with a longer coat and still looks amazing. Although it seems like such a simple tip, choosing the right coat is so important. It’s a chance to accessorize and tie your outfit together while also ensuring you don’t freeze, haha. Don’t be afraid to try out different lengths and fabrics to find what works best for you. Finally, to complete the look, wear a pair of gold stud earrings, black sunglasses, a leather tote bag, and a pair of white leather sneakers to keep it casual. These sneakers are some of my favorite shoes, and this new neutral colorway is so pretty.

White Turtleneck Sweater Dress

White Turtleneck Sweater Dress / Trench Coat / Black Ankle Boots / Black Leather Bag / Mini Hoops

This look would be a great work to weekend outfit. I absolutely love this long white turtleneck sweater dress. While it’s simple, it makes such a statement. Since it’s low in stock, I’m also linking a similar white sweater dress which would be equally as gorgeous styled like this. Next, I’d pair the dress with a neutral-colored trench coat. A longer coat not only ensures you stay warm but also complements the longer length of the dress. Another style tip when wearing dresses in the winter is choosing the right shoe. For longer dresses, ankle boots work really well, whereas a flat or sneaker looks great with midi dresses. Since this turtleneck sweater dress is long, I added a little height with these black leather ankle boots. Finally, accessorize with a black leather bag and mini gold hoops to tie this look together.
