Winter is no friend to those who enjoy wearing dresses. No matter how many layers you put on, or how thick your tights are, the cold wind always manages to find a way to chill you to the bone. But wearing pants all the time gets boring and isn’t always possible. On top of that, along with the holidays, comes plenty of parties and gatherings, making quick wardrobe changes from work to party-friendly outfits or meeting up with family difficult at times. Here for your convenience are 7 versatile dresses that will get you ready for any winter celebration.
The pinstripes on this velvet dress paired with some boots or low heels say work-ready, but the velvet says party. Wear this to office festivities or if you don’t have time to go home and change for after-hours gatherings.
For those strange, awkward encounters like going on a first date or meeting your partner’s parents for the first time, you want something classy but not stiff.
