Raise your hand if you’re Bed Bath and Beyond done with this cold weather.
I’m patiently waiting for spring and planning out all the fantastic outfits I’ll wear once I stop needing to pile on layers of shapeless clothing to avoid hypothermia. I have a vision of incorporating fall pieces with flouncy skirts. I’ve been eyeing several leather peplum shirts as my takeaway from fall, and have been inspired by these posts (one and two) from my favorite fashion blogger.
Depending on where you live, it may be too cold to wear these dresses as is. I suggest wearing a blazer, such as this one from H&M. It’s not exactly a breakthrough in fashion, but it’s a classic look and easy to wear. These dresses are also short enough to be worn tunic-style over leggings for colder areas, and would be a nice peekaboo sparkle under the over sized puffy parka you’ll have to live in until April. I’ve been there.
If a sequined dress is too much for you, I suggest blinding everyone with your feet. Bar hoppers will think you stole the ball from Times Square when you stumble in wearing these babies. I said stumble because I assume you’ll be drinking and let’s face it, you’ll wear the heels despite how much they hurt and end up taking a cab back home, your glittery heels in one hand, a pair of Tieks now sitting comfortably on your feet.
