Sometimes it is just plain painful to go out at night during the winter. Getting dressed up and going to a dinner or party just doesn’t seem as fun as staying at home in a big sweatshirt and ordering take out. At times when going out is required I can often be found in something large and oversized that resembles a scarf/sweater/blanket combo. However, I suppose there are times when that kind of dress is unacceptable. In those cases it is good to have some essential pieces on hand to make getting dressed up slightly less torturous and actually a little fun.
- A fun black skirt. My ruffled BCBG one is old, but I’ve been dying for a tulle or feathered one.
- A good statement shoe. Mine are shoemint, but these leopard ones would be amazing.
- A multipurpose blazer. I have so many it’s a little embarrassing but I wear them all the time.
- Colorful or printed tights. Just don’t wear nude. EVER.
What’s your go-to for dressing up in the winter?
