Decreasing temperatures and increasing wind speeds often cause us to retreat within the bulkiest, most frumpy clothes we own for months at a time. Jeans and flannels may have their place, but there's no reason to make them your winter uniform. Below are three options we have in store to cut down on bulky layers while still keeping warm and refusing to sacrifice on style. Throw on a second pair of tights or some thigh high socks with a pair of boots and you're good to go.
This purple sweater dress may seem strictly eighties,
but worn with a slim woven belt and beautiful wooden heels, it's completely modern.
A mock turtleneck sweater dress gets a sexy update with a slim silhouette and thigh-grazing hemline.
Pair it with combat boots and a tough belt and no one will ever think it came from your grandmother.
This gem is made for the winter blues; an attached faux jacket makes this look put together with the simplicity of a dress. Also, it's made of quilted cotton to add extra warmth. The shoes, in two tone leather with perforated detailing, complement the color scheme but would also brighten up an otherwise drab outfit.
