WELCOME WINTER INTO YOUR WARDROBE
Knowing how to winterise your dresses and how to style your favourite pieces for the cooler months is really important when it comes to investment pieces, and there are a few tricks of the trade when it comes to increasing your return on investment.
1. MAKE A SWITCH TO heavier weight fabric
The dresses made from the heavy-weight ITY fabric are the warmer choice when it comes to winter dresses. The slinky dresses are best saved for spring/summer however if you really want to wear them, think of layering underneath with a slip for a touch of warmth. These dresses make great trans-seasonal pieces with just a bit of layering.
2. Layer upon layer
Layer your dresses with slips, camisoles and jackets. This is a great way to add warmth, even with the inbuilt lining adding another layer can really help. Our slips are made with the slinky base as so to reduce static and the dresses actually slink and glide over the slip. If you are experiencing static there are a few hacks that can help. You can use fabric softener, there are also anti-static sprays on the market and even hairspray will act as an anti-static film when sprayed onto stockings.
4. Make a statement with your jacket
Invest in a nice jacket that works well with your dresses. It's all about that fit in the back and the length, cropped length is better for paring with dresses. "Wear the jacket...don't let the jacket wear you". Something like our Odette jacket is a perfect example of the jacket length that best suits dresses. Also, lining in a jacket is great if you're looking for extra warmth. Getting your sleeves tailored on a great jacket can really make the jacket sit perfectly for you. If you're looking to add some fun, look into a selection of our Levis jackets, go bright and make it a statement piece!
5. Mix, match AND HAVE FUN WITH A PRINT
Having a great selection of separates will really help to winterise your wardrobe. Think about adopting your trans-seasonal dresses, with the right selection of cardigans and jackets you just peel off the layers as needed throughout the day.
Most of all have fun with styling and don't take winter too seriously! Embrace this time of the year and bring your own fashion flare out - prints and colour are perfect for adding some spice to cooler months.
