The temperature may be dropping, but that doesn’t mean you need to put your mini dresses away. In fact, there are many ways that you can style short dresses to make them weather appropriate.
So instead of spending extra money on “Winter dresses”, use the ones you already have in your wardrobe and follow a few simple style tips.
Here are 5 style tips to rock a mini dress even when it’s cold!
1. Wear tights
The first thought that comes to mind when you put on a mini dress is whether or not you’ll be cold. Fortunately, tights solve this issue and can also add a stylish element to your outfit. If you’re wearing a plain mini dress opt for a pair of graphic tights to stand out from the crowd.
2. Put on some heeled boots
A mini dress is great for showing off your legs (and tights) and you can lengthen them with a pair of heeled boots. A pointed toe boot looks very classy, especially if your dress is more formal. However your options are limitless when it comes to boots, so wear whatever suits your style.
3. Belt it
A trick to stay warm in the Winter is to belt anything you’re wearing around the waist. It surprisingly helps keep in a lot of heat, making it a great option if you’re wearing a dress. A mini dress looks great with a thick or thin belt; just make sure that your dress doesn’t get pulled up too high.
4. Wear a turtleneck underneath
This is one of my favourite looks for the Winter months and it’s super easy to pull off. Depending on the type of mini dress you have on, you can wear a turtleneck underneath to keep warm. I think that a thin strapped dress looks best with a tight turtleneck beneath!
5. Put on a hat
To top off your outfit (no pun intended) put on a beret or a baker boy hat! Adding a Winter accessory pulls the whole look together and really makes it feel seasonal. If you want to take your look a step further, try matching your hat and boots!
