How to style winter dresses for extra warmth

If you’re worried about staying warm in any of these cold weather dresses, you can easily layer a puffer coat, wool long coat, long cardigan, faux fur jacket, chunky sweaters or soft knits over most of them for extra warmth.

I know it’s not sexy but a thermal bodysuit and even thermal tights or leggings also work wonders! I’m all about layering rather than one thick layer in the cold winter months as otherwise I tend to overheat inside.
