Accessorizing the Long Sleeved Dress on a Cold Day

The long sleeve dress is a great addition to a woman’s winter capsule wardrobe and with the right accessories the transition from day to evening is smooth running.

As you may know from my last post I chose M&S long sleeve abstract print dress for my winter capsule wardrobe.

And as promised I’d like to show you how versatile it is.

For a day attending press events, it is important to be comfortable as it does entail a lot of running around.

The long sleeve dress enables me to wear a lighter coat and still keep warm without the need of a bulkier and cumbersome coat.

The classic trench coat in both short or long length is ideal. Plus the colour of this short trench coat completely matches the beige in the dress.

Long sleeve dresses also look great with boots low or high heeled.  Here worn with mid heeled boots.

A long sleeved dress gives a sense of elegance so try not to cover up the sleeves with a cardigan.

Instead I've layered with a thin polo neck jumper underneath choosing a matching beige colour. Add a pair of thick tights and you're ready for the colder weather.

The jumper/dress combo creates two necklines. You still have the flattering V which suits both the small to the large bust, whilst the polo provides warmth and coverage on a cold day.

Plus the space in between the necklines is perfect for a statement necklace.

One of the press venues included a footwear store so I just had to try on some of their shoes.

 Don't you think this pair of ankle boots with the beige piping goes really well with the dress?

And just to remind you what the dress looks like by itself, see image below:
