How to Wear Dresses for Winter

2 June 2020

Often when we talk about dresses, we envision them in the spring and summer months but at Forever New we love wearing them all year round. And, we’re sure you do too. Take a look at our statement dress styles of the season and discover new ways to wear your favourite silhouette in the cooler months.

Knit Dresses

The classic knit or sweater dress can take you from office to dinner date in a snap. And they aren’t just stylish, they offer warmth as well. Who said practical couldn’t be chic? Sleek ribbed knit fabric creates a streamlined silhouette that can easily be worn with heels or boots.

Moody florals

Florals don’t have to be bright or dainty. Swap out delicate floral prints for our dramatic, large-scale alternatives and wear with tall leather boots for dark and moody appeal.

Shimmering fabrics

Try party dresses in metallic or sequined fabrics for extra oomph when dressing up for a special occasion. Couple with a faux-fur trimmed coat and some simple heels for a glamorous look.

Warming hues

Earthy toned dresses like the Mikayla and Mika offer a sense of rich colour – a perfect tonic to cold, frosty days. Pair back with understated black accessories and a warm coat and you’re ready to step out into the grey.

Refined leather

Faux leather arrives in the form of the sophisticated mini dress. Leather-look dresses - or even gloves - are a great way to add warmth to your outfit while maintaining a trending edge to your overall look.

Added warmth

One of the keys to wearing dresses in the cooler months is to invest in a warm, wool blend coat and some tall boots. Layer up with black tights and neutral-toned accessories like gloves and scarves and let the dress become the focal point of your look.
