Your Guide to Choosing the Perfect Fall and Winter Dresses - 5 Key Features to Watch For

When the weather starts to get colder, you may be tempted to go back to your jeans and t-shirts. But if you love wearing dresses, you don't have to stop wearing them just because it's getting cold out.

Here are some tips for picking out dresses that will keep you warm during the colder months.

  1. Look for heavier fabrics and lined dresses

If you're going to be outside in the cold all day, then it's important that your dress is made of a thicker material. This way, even if it gets windy or rainy, you'll still be protected from the elements. Look for wool or fleece dresses and coats for the best protection from the cold. A lined dress will also help keep you warmer in the winter months since it has an extra layer between your body and the outer layer of fabric on your dress. If you want something more casual, try a long-sleeved top underneath your dress as well! Here is a great example: the Serena Tiered Maxi dress contrasts a voluminous sweeping tiers with a stunning fitted waist. Fully lined and it is 100% cotton. For styling, a pair of boots, a vest for colder days and voilà!

       2. Get a timeless style

As we've mentioned before on our blog, when shopping for clothes make sure that whatever item you buy can be worn over and over again without looking outdated or outdated itself (i.e., frumpy). The same goes for picking out dresses for fall/winter — A Fall dress should easily transition to winter and even early spring if well styled. The Rosana Crimson Dress encapsules that idea perfectly. The red hue that matches the falling leaves, also can be worn for holidays to early Spring. The functional buttons in the front can be undone to add a touch of sexiness, with rolled up sleeves. 

      3. Dresses with Long Sleeves

Long sleeved dresses are perfect for the winter months because they keep you warm and cozy wherever you go! They are also very versatile and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

      4. Maxi Dresses

Maxi dresses are great for the cold weather because they cover your legs and keep them warm from the elements outside. They are also really comfortable and easy to move in which makes them ideal for travel as well as everyday wear!

      5. Layers

Do you ever layer your outfit just to feel like a an oven when inside an office or building? While picking out your dresses, making sure they can be layered are so important. You want to be able to wear a thermal garment, a turtle neck or even a vest for extra warm. Just
