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!

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

HOW TO STYLE RED CLOTHING ITEMS FOR WINTER?

A few posts ago (yes, bloggers calculate time in post activity), I wrote about red accessories for winter but I also wanted to write about red clothing items you can wear this time of year. In fact, I was planning to write a big post about wearing red in winter but I realized that I need to split it in two because it was too long. Apparently, I have a lot to say about why wearing red in winter is a good idea. So, today I'll basically post the part two of my red in winter fashion musings. Red is a bold, energetic and dramatic colour. If you ask me, wearing red is a great way to invoke good luck in our new year. You can pair red with neutral colours to tone it down or with vibrant ones to make your outfits even more noticeable. Lunar Year festivities are a perfect time to embrace the red clothing items. Moreover, Valentine's Day is not too far off either. If you're looking for some winter red outfit inspiration, you have come to the right place. HOW TO WEAR RED IN WINTER?   My…

READING UPDATE: KAZUO ISHIGURO, THE BURIED GIANT AND MORE

Hello dear readers, how's life treating you? It's time for another reading update on my blog. You guys know that I'm a bookworm and a reading addict, right? Today I have a couple of book reviews to share with you. I'll be reviewing four books (more precisely: two novels and two short story collections). It's a mixed crowd of writers that I'm reviewing, from Nobel winning Kazuo Ishiguro to some other well known authors. So, let's get started. Scroll down to read my opinion of these books.  THE BURIED GIANT, A NOVEL BY KAZUO ISHIGURO 5/5 Having seen a fascinating interview with mr. Ishiguro about this very book, I had high expectations for The Buried Giant. I'm happy to report that my expectations were fulfilled. Once again, Kazuo Ishiguro impressed me his subtle and beautiful writing. This novel is a masterpiece. The Buried Giant is very moving tale of an elderly couple in search for their lost past. Axl and Beatrix share a strong connection, but just lik…

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…
