Styling Dresses In Winter


Have you ever had a blog post idea in the back of your mind for months, and it takes till the one free day, after all, that time to finally put it into action. Well yeah, that was me for this post.

Though I'm not one to wear dresses that much, think once in the blue moon kind of rarity, I'm even less likely to wear them in winter, if that percentage of wearing them can get any smaller than the rest of the year. But as a challenge, and for the blog and Instagram, I thought it would be fun to style one that I could, in theory, wear out on any cold winter's day. And you know what I've seemed to lost my ability to write good introductions for any of my blog posts so let's jump right back into this post.


This is the dress that featured in a blog post back in the summer, that you can totally check out here if you want to, shameless self-promo right there, which I received from BooHoo. And since then it hasn't really left my wardrobe. But it finally got to see the light of day again for this photoshoot.

Since the dress is already in a neutral tone I kept that theme running through with the black long sleeve turtle neck. I love the layering look with turtle/high necks and short sleeves anything over the top. I really don't wear it that much since my tops just don't match up so this was my first proper chance at putting this trend into action.

To make it more suitable for winter I added the black tights and the black flat boots. Not only for warmth but also I'm not really sure I'm up for wearing heels when there are possibilities of frost and ice, I'm already clumsy without wearing heels, so it's definitely safer for me to wear anything flat.

To be honest, it would have made more sense if I added a jacket to this outfit, but I had left most of them at uni over the break so didn't really have any that matched the outfit at home. What sort of jacket or coat do you think would work best for this.

I'm going to keep this post short and leave it here with the photos doing most of the talking.

Do you wear many dresses in the winter or do you stick to keeping covered up more?

  2. Sophie you look so cute! I like the color of your dress, it's screams winter especially with the soft velvety texture❤️👌🏾 As far as which jacket to wear, I would say a black faux leather jacket would be great with this look👏🏾

  4. I always have post ideas in the back of mind that seem to stay there for months on end too! Then again sometimes I think up something and have it posted within 24 hours. Maybe there's a method to the madness.
    I adore dresses but don't often wear them. I'm quite tall so it's hard to find one that isn't too short for work. The orangey brown colour in your dress is gorgeous. Seems perfect for any time of the year!
