Trying to balance style with warmth is a fashion dilemma we all face during the Winter months. Your favourite spaghetti-strap dress and that go-to Summer dress is just not going to cut it anymore, with raging winds and unpredictable cold snaps. So at Esther & Co, we’ve created a list of cold-weather proof outfits for those ‘I want to wear a dress’ kind of days we all have.
Have a fancy dinner or cocktail evening planned? For these nights, opt for a classy, form fitting dress like our Venita dress, which is long enough to cover your legs from those cold winter winds yet still looks super chic. To match a fancy outfit like this, you can’t go wrong with a basic black jacket to go from venue to venue!
For those Fridays you plan on heading out for drinks after work, trying to find a dress that’s appropriate for the office but also fun and flirty can be stressful at times. We recommend keeping it modest with a midi dress but play with colours or patterns to add a pop to your usual black and white palette. Our Sarina dress is just that, with long sleeves and a cute floral pattern. Pair this with a warm, corporate jacket and you’ve got an outfit that’ll take you from 9 all the way to that dance-floor.
For a laid back look to head down to the local café, our Lanie dress is a go to with its fitted silhouette yet unique waist tie that adds that extra chic. To complete the look, pair it with some white sneakers and a bug cosy cardi, and you have a cute yet edgy outfit that’ll keep you feeling as toasty as ever. A latte anyone?
Who says we can’t have picnics in winter? Being next to the beach with a hot choccy instead of an acai bowl definitely sounds like a good time. You don't have to say goodbye to your summer cotton dresses, just add a chunky knit cardigan! Pair your fave Summer dresses with a warm, cosy knit and you’ll be ready for any beachside picnic.
