Should we wear dresses during Winter?

Should we wear dresses during the colder months? I think we should, especially if they are an item of clothing that we normally like to wear. Provided that we like to wear dresses, there is so reason why we shouldn't wear them during all seasons. Dresses are one of the most feminine  clothing items and it is shame to give up on them just because temperatures drops below zero. There are actually a lot of ways to wear dresses in Winter. If we are worried about the cold we can always make sure we layer our outfits well. I'm do wear leggings and/or tights with dresses as soon as it gets colder, I was never the one to brave the cold with bare legs in Winter. 



What do you think about wearing dresses in Winter? Do you prefer to wear pants during the colder season? I just realized there is actually a compromise offered by a new trend. Dresses over pants is a fashion trend loved by many. Moreover, this combo is perfect for those ladies who don't want to give up on their favourite pair of jeans or pants. This way you can still wear your favourite dress together with your favourite pants. When it comes to dresses, I actually don't have a preferred style. I often wear dresses and I don't see why a temperature change should make me give up something I enjoy. 

Here I made a selection of dresses for women from brand FashionMia. What kind of dresses do you like to wear during the colder months? What do you like to pair the dresses with? I often pair dresses with boots, I know it is not terribly original thing to do during Winter but if it does the trick, why not? Staying warm is important. Still, if you are trying to create a more elegant look then it is better to opt for a nice pair of pumps. You can always choose thicker thighs if you are worried about getting a cold. 





What kind of dress you should opt for if you are plus size? Well, if you ask me, you should wear whatever you like. Magazines are full of advice on how to dress one's body type and while these kind of tips can be useful, shouldn't we also wear what we like? What is the point of clothes if we can't enjoy them? I do believe that every size is beautiful. I believe we can enjoy fashion not matter what our size is. I don't believe that you can be healthy no matter the size, because obviously if one is size XXXXXXXXXL then one has a health condition, but you can and should love yourself not matter the size or health condition for that matter.  Fortunately nowadays, there is a pretty good selection of plus size clothing available.  If you love clothes and fashion, there is so reason why you shouldn't enjoy clothes and fashion.



Do you have a preferred dress style when it gets colder? What about the material? Do you prefer knitted dress or do you still wear satin and silk? I've never given this matter that much though, but I'm usually pretty practical. A nice over-sized dress paired with boots and leggings is always a comfortable choice. A knitted dress is especially suitable on those extremely cold days. I love knitted dresses, but I think that thinner materials are alright as well as long as we layer them well. Speaking of lighter materials, there is one vintage red dress that I didn't get to wear this year, so I'm making a mental note to style that one at least once. For some reasons, red is the colour that I'm craving right now. Maybe because of the Chinese New Year? I've been wanting to wear something more dramatic in the dress department, but my choices lately have been pretty safe (at least according to my standards). I hope I'll find the time to put together an outfit that will be a bit more fashion forward soon. That would be all for today.  Thank you for reading. Have a lovely day!

14 WAYS TO STYLE ONE BLUE DENIM SKIRT: SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES

Sustainable fashion is such a hot topic right now, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned into a fashion revolution. More and more people are trying to minimize their carbon print by re-wearing their clothes and shopping their closets. One good way to build a functioning wardrobe you'll love to shop is to make sure you have a couple of essential items in it. These basic pieces can help you shop your closet more easily and become more sustainable in your fashion choices. A denim skirt is one such classical and essential item.  Today I'll show you ten ways to style a denim skirt. I had this particular denim skirt for a couple of years, it's by Croatian denim brand Amadeus (not sponsored) that I can recommend for its quality denim. For me this skirt is one of those items that are season-less and by that I mean those clothing items that can be worn in any season. If you're creative enough, you can figure out a way to wear most of your clothes in any season, but some ite…

HOW I GOT INSPIRED BY D&G AUTUMN/WINTER 2019/2020 COLLECTION? (PART 1)

Yesterday I finally took the the time to watch (and listen) to the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 collection. The runaway show was organized in retro style and lasted about half and hour. Instead of music, it featured a British narrator who commented on the designs in the old style (that is how fashion shows used to be presented, narrated instead of accompanied by the music). Anyhow, I found the both the narration and the narrator charming. The fact that the narrator pointed out all the materials used was quite helpful. The models seemed to move quite quickly, but there were 127 looks displayed so the show took a quite some time to finish. It took me twice as long to study the photographs as to see the show. The trend analysis took even more time. However, that time was not spent in vain for I was finally inspired to ponder my autumn and winter outfits. What do you know? D&G Autumn/Winter collection gave me plenty of inspiration for the colder season ahead. I don'…
