Cold winter weather can make it easy to fall into a style rut; the temperature drops and bundling up in big sweaters, jeans and boots makes sense. This combination being such a stark contrast to summer looks might be fun for a few weeks, but wearing different variations of the same thing does get boring. And that’s when it’s time to switch things up, and there’s no better way to do that than with a dress and some layering.

Chilly weather doesn’t mean completely ditching dresses, it just means you need to learn to layer them like a pro. We’ve spotted a few ways to get around that lack of inspo, on the gram. For instance, wearing a printed wrap dress with a pair of jeans, like @bisousbyghislaine, is a breath of fresh air in contrast to how dull winter can get. @Lerato_kgamanyane’s metallic maxi layered with a textured bodysuit adds a chic twinkle to winter style. And we particularly enjoy @Zolfreckles’s fun texture clash with a slinky Missguided slip dress and chunky thigh high boots that she wore with a biker jacket. A lover of all things classic, from shapes to colour tones, @tarryno opted for a structured coat layered over a flowy maxi and some block heel boots. Incorporating dresses into your winter wardrobe is an unexpected way for you to flex your creative flair when it comes to creating impactful looks. Try it, you’ll surprise yourself with how many fresh takes to old tricks you can come up with; and your laundry load will be lighter.
