When the cold weather is upon us, wearing dresses that are both flattering and without giving into the cold is no easy feat. To keep cozy in this season, layering is the key. You can either layer on top or give the bottom some thoughts. However, when putting on that many layers, things can get frumpier than intended. To avoid looking like a bear, here are 6 handy styles to make sure you wear dresses properly this season.
