Our We Try Before You Buyseries aims to take the stress out of shopping and eliminate the number of post office visits you make each month to return failed online orders. We test new-season buys and styling ideas so you don’t have to. Here, we’re letting you know what’s actually worth investing in.
It’s easy to get into a bit of a style rut over winter. Throwing on a pair of jeans, boots and your cosiest jumper almost becomes an autopilot reaction in the morning as a desperate attempt to stay warm. It’s simple, unfussy and a completely foolproof winter outfit formula for those unbearable days when all you’re thinking about is how to retain heat.
Though, here at Who What Wear, we’re always looking for ways to add interest to our outfits, and since winter requires a little thought, we’re determined not to let it take the enthusiasm out of dressing. With this in mind, the team set out to find winter dress options that would not only keep your outfits interesting but also pair well with tights, boots and all your favourite coats. From feathers to polka dots and power shoulders, these dresses have personality aplenty and can easily be layered over a roll-neck for those arctic mornings or paired with your favourite jumper for added warmth. Just because it might look bleak outside doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to match.
Including a few items in warm winter fabrics like wool, cashmere and leather, these dresses can take you from office to occasion. Keep scrolling to find a few of our favourite winter dresses.
1. Ghost Dress
Who What Wear
Style Notes: This Ghost dress is perfect for those winter events when you need a little extra oomph but don't want to compromise on warmth or comfort. Add a pair of tights underneath and a cropped knit on top, and you're good to go.
Style Notes: A nice way to break up the habitual reliance on neutral tones during winter is to opt for a pattern. Finding a polka-dot dress with a white base is a great way to add a lighter shade to your wardrobe.
