Wearing summer dresses in winter

So, we bet you’re wondering how to wear a summer dress in winter. It’s actually quite simple! With a mixture of different styles, clothing additions and accessories, you can easily style a summer dress in the winter months, while still remaining warm, comfortable and fashionable.

Here are some tips to help you comfortably wear summer dresses in the winter:

  • Add a slimline knit
  • Choose a length that works well with boots
  • Mix and match colours
  • Layer with a jacket

Add a slimline knit

Dressing in the winter months is all about warmth and comfort. Of course, style is important but layering your summer dress with a light knit jumper can tick all three boxes at once. A knitted cardigan is an ideal piece of clothing for showing off your beautiful summer dress, while also remaining warm and stylish.

Choose a length that works well with boots

In winter, your knee-high boots will make an appearance a lot more often than in summer, so try to wear a dress length that works well with boots. A midi dress is an ideal length for wearing with boots in the winter, so stock up on them.

Mix and match colours

It’s important to bring colour into your outfit. Throughout summer, all outfits are bursting with bright colours because they match the scenery and weather. In winter, darker colours are favoured but you should still try to wear plenty of colours. Why can’t you wear a pink jacket or boots in the winter? Show off your style!

Layer with a jacket

Our final tip for how to wear a summer dress in the winter is to layer it with a beautiful jacket or blazer. Going anywhere in winter will require layers in order to stay warm and comfortable, so consider wearing a jacket like the LEONA white jacket.
