November 14, 2023 3 Ways to Style a Ruffle Dress for Winter

A ruffle dress may be one of the last items you think of when imagining your winter wardrobe, but hear us out.

With a little creative styling, these dresses can be winter-proofed with the right footwear and additional layers. Tights and tall socks can extend their wear into cooler temps too.

And if you live somewhere where it gets really cold, you can consider these dresses for indoor gatherings and holiday parties. Just lean towards your dresses in darker colors and keep accessories in winter textures and shades.

Below are 3 easy ways to style a ruffle dress for winter wear.

1. Belted with Booties

Add a leather belt and boots or booties to freshen the look for cooler weather.

2. With Combat Boots (and Caps!)

Warm socks and combat boots will help you make the seasonal switch, with a cap or beanie adding even more warmth.

3. Add a Vest

Vests come in so many materials and styles, so add this extra layer. We’re very likely to pick sweater vests.
