Warm(er) Dress Options

5 Warm Dress Options Basic black pants can provide an answer to many cold weather wardrobe conundrums, but there are still occasions during the winter months where a dress is required. Yet, trying to find a warm dress these days is like trying to find a needle in a haystack! Dresses by definition show more skin, but are there a few options out there that will provide warmth? I've been on a mission to find dresses that require minimum layering while still remaining dressy enough for a special event, work meeting, or social engagement. Here are five:

This dress from Pixie Market has long sleeves and is made of a wool acrylic blend.

This sweater dress from Victoria's Secret is actually two different pieces (which of course you have to purchase separately). But, I like that the outfit can be broken apart and work with other items in a wardrobe.

I just love how this dress from Avenue is draped! The arms add an interesting detail without being too outrageous.

This dress has drama! The BCBGeneration Dress from Macy's has an attached scarf and front pockets. (I love dresses with pockets!) Even better? It's on sale for $74.99, down from the original price of $98.00.

The Fever Dress in Imperial Jade from Macy's provides an amazing pop of color in a sea of wintertime black and grey.

What about you? Have you been able to find a warm dress? Do you tend to stay away from dresses completely during the winter?
