Lately I’ve found myself in a bit of a wardrobe rut. Winter has begun and it’s been icy around these parts. As such, I’ve found myself reaching for the same warm and cosy clothes over and over. And that’s fine, but it’s making me feel bored and a bit sluggish. I’m the type of person who needs to dress up once in a while, to put on something fun to sweep the cobwebs out of my brain. For me, trying something new with my clothes is like a cup of coffee for my soul.
I pulled out a body con dress I was given by a friend a few months ago. I wore it a lot in summer, but now that the weather has cooled off, I hadn’t reached for it in a while. I decided to pair it with thermal leggings, boots and a slouchy jumper for a sassy winter look.
I am wearing:
- floral body con dress
- Black fleece-lined tights from The Reject Shop
- Black knitted jumper from Cotton On
- Black vegan leather boots from Ebay
- Moonstone ring from Louvisa
- Dr Frank brooch from Erstwilder
- Vintage silver earrings.
This almost all-black ensemble felt like the perfect backdrop for my Dr Frank brooch. He’s one of my favourite Erstwilder creations, and I’m particularly smitten with his tiny pearl necklace.
I paired a few makeup products that I don’t usually wear together- a smokey purple eye with a pink lip and I was pretty happy with the result. I have been wearing a lot of dark lip colours lately and it was a refreshing change to wear something a bit punchier.
It’s so easy to update your summer clothes for the cooler months. Adding warm legwear, a jumper or cardigan and boots brings your body con dresses forwards into the new season and means that you can get twice as much wear out of them.
Do you wear body con dresses in winter? How do you style yours?
