It’s easy to forget about cute dresses during the winter months. The cold season doesn’t seem to render as many smart dress options in stores, and wearing pants and a sweater is often more comfy–something everyone can agree is important when you’re chilly!
But for those occasions when you need to wear a dress, or if you just really miss sporting them, we’ve rounded up five of our favorite winter-friendly dress finds. Remember that you’ll still need some thick tights or leggings and a sweater and jacket to stay warm. And, if you live somewhere really chilly, maybe a scarf, hat and legwarmers, too. Stay warm out there!
The shirtdress is a popular and chic way to stay both warm and comfortable. This particular dress, from Forever 21 ($25), is woven and lightweight. Little silver buttons and a light blue tie belt complete the look.
We can thank noted fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg for her brilliant wrap dress design. It caught massive popularity in the 1970s for its comfortable and forgiving design; it looks great on all body shapes! We really like this gray and neon print from Old Navy ($25) for winter–you could try a cute white or yellow cami underneath for extra coverage!
This simple striped dress , known as a “shift dress”, is celebrated for its simplicity and elegance. The version pictured here, from the Gap ($60), has the added bonus of being made from jersey. Super comfy (100% cotton!) and easy to accessorize!
We really love the color of this sweet and romantic ModCloth ($55) dress. The super great thing about this website is it offers free shipping and returns, so if you don’t like what you order or it doesn’t fit, you can just ship it right back!
We kind of want to curl up in this long-sleeved Merino wool dress and take a nap! It looks like a giant sweater, but is cut well and is both stylish and simple. Our favorite part? It is handmade by an artist on Etsy ($26), so you can be sure that it will fit!
