Add a Third Piece

Wether it be the jacket of the season—the menswear inspired blazer—a chunky cardigan, or even just your trusty leather biker jacket, adding a third piece to a dress look is key when the temperatures start to drop. For super cold days, finish the look with tall boots and make sure your third piece is easily layered under a coat.

Wear the Pants

Yes, you can wear pants under a dress. Long-line or Midi dresses work best for this styling tip. For an ultra chic Olsen twins inspired look, go for head to toe black and cinch your waist in with a belt, like the image below. Denim works great as well, specially when a black turtleneck is involved.

Throw a Knit On

Silky slip dresses are ideal for layering under sweaters. Juxtapose the feminine, sleek style of a slip by throwing on a chunky knit topper. Complete the look with a pair of tall leather or suede boots. layered dress street style
