Many of us here at ModCloth, myself included, aren’t willing to forgo dresses and miniskirts just because, baby, it’s cold outside. But sometimes, when the wind chill is high and the barometer reading is low, one steps outside and can’t help but think, “Warm arms, cold legs…can lose.”
The ModStylists® are here to help! The solution? It’s seriously simple: layering. It’s not just for tops, sweaters, and coats, folks!

Does the same idea apply for print dresses? And have those old rules like “NO white after Labor Day” and no floral prints in winter gone out the window? I sure hope so.
Such a great question! The above idea most certainly does apply to print dresses. I have so many cute mini-plaid dresses that are just dying to be worn in the colder winter months! By adding solid-colored tights, socks, and boots, you can feel confident rocking your shorter dresses while staving off frostbite. If you are more adventurous and enjoy pattern-mixing, you could stray from the solid-colored tights and pair a cute mini floral dress with polka dotted tights, for example. The possibilities are endless!
In regard to “old rules”, we are so not a fan! There are plenty of ways to wear white after Labor Day and fun prints such as floral in the fall and winter months. Be sure to contact the ModStylists for any fun winter style tips. 🙂

I love layering tights with my dresses! I’ve collected plenty of black and darker tights to go with my darker dresses but I just found some “sweater” tights at Target that are off white and they’ve been great to pair with my skirts and dresses that are on the lighter side! It’s made wearing my summer dresses in winter much easier!
Thank you so much for sharing! I’m so happy to hear that you have tried this tip to make your spring and summer-geared dresses work for winter. It sounds like you have an amazing sense of style, and we would love to see some of your summer-to-winter outfit examples on our Style Gallery! 🙂
