Layer your dresses:
For look #1, I grabbed two dresses from my closet, this recently purchased colour-blocked navy/cobalt dress from Smart Set & a charcoal turtleneck sweater dress. I layered the warm knit under the boxy shift for interest and warmth. I threw on a faux leather blazer and my trusty Aldo wedge boots to finish off the look.
If you want to take your layering one step further, try a pair of patterned tights over your opaque ones. Both my pairs are black but you could get creative with different shades if you wanted a less subtle effect.
Pair something casual with something dressy:
For look #2 I grabbed this Le Chateau silk blouse and paired it with a chunky, short-sleeved cardigan I’ve had for a while in my closet. I always felt this sweater could only be worn casually but I’ve taken this look to office appropriate with the heels and jewelery.
Layer your accessories:
Stay warm and look chic in look #3 where I’m pairing my new fingerless gloves from Garage, layered over a pair of regular gloves. This would work with mitts as well; feel free to mix in some colour to offer dimension & interest. Not only does this look cool, it adds extra warmth in the winter.
