How to Wear Spring Dresses in Cold Weather
Spring dresses are often comfortable because they’re so light and breezy, but they’re not usually appropriate for cold weather. Not only do they seem out of place, they do little to keep you warm and comfortable during the day or when out for a night on the town. You can wear your spring dresses during winter if you know how to dress them up and how to wear the right accessories with them.
The first thing to do is wear something warm under your spring dress. Tights are a great option for keeping your legs warm when you’re wearing a lightweight dress, and have fun with tights during the winter. If your dress is white, choose bright red or yellow to add some color to your wardrobe, especially if you’re wearing your spring or summer dress for a night on the town. Black is a safer color and you can choose stripes, flowers, or other patterns for a hint of sexiness.
Boots can also be a good choice when you wear a light dress during winter. Boots will cover up more of your leg and will make you look more appropriate for wintertime. Choose stylish boots for wearing all day long rather than plain functional boots; something with a heel will be attractive.
It might also be good to wear a sweater or a jacket over your spring dress if you wear it during the winter. You might wear a large winter sweater over the bodice so it looks like a sweater and skirt set, or you might keep your favorite wrap sweater on you at all times. Because spring and summer dresses are so light, you’ll need this extra layer to be comfortable. If you can’t find a sweater or jacket that matches, check out your man’s side of the closet for an oversized business coat. This can be a fun and funky look.
Your accessories should also be considered when wearing a spring dress during winter, as you want your jewelry and other items to look appropriate for the season. Light pink earrings can seem out of place, so consider chunky pieces that are heavier and better for the cold weather. You might even tie a scarf around your neck for added warmth and to make your dress seem like a better fit for winter.
Other accessories can also add warmth to your light dress. A shawl tied around the waist will add a layer of warmth, or you might keep a shawl draped over your shoulders. This is a very feminine look that’s perfect for a date night out, and which can make your light dress the right choice no matter the cold weather.
