Slip dresses are so versatile in summer that I wanted to extend their wear into winter. But how to deal with the temperature factor? It’s easy to slip on a jacket over the top but that can admittedly be a little chilly on cooler winter days. So to up the warmth factor I decided to layer dresses! I took this Pereira Fitzgerald dress and popped it on over a red Bec & Bridge ribbed mini dress. The long sleeves and turtleneck of the mini dress helped keep me warm and as it’s longer than a top it provided little extra coverage. Win-win!
Being able to utilise dresses in winter is a great way to extend the wear of my wardrobe and allow pieces I’d usually wear in spring/summer to stay in rotation. I’m all about versatility when it comes to what’s in my closet so I’m always happy when I can wear something all year round.
I also love the contrasting colour scheme of red and black. It has a bold feel and looks really strong and modern so I wanted to maintain the same colour palette throughout. I decided to pair my outfit with studded Alaïa heels to give it a dressy feel and maintain a polished look. With heels, I could easily wear this outfit to a function or a work event but with flats, it can transition to a weekend appropriate ensemble. As a finishing touch I decided to throw on a pair of cat eye sunglasses for a classic feel.
