What I Wore in Winter...Before The Snow Storm: Day To Night Look

what to wear in winter and how to wear a casual day dress from day to night in winter

The winter snow storm and current weather news can be quite the downer especially when it comes to what to wear. Like winter alone before the storm hasn't been enough already but winter got to winter. That said, I refuse to give-in. Finding ways to light up the dreary winter with a pick-me-up look has been a challenge lately but I am trying to take it easy, have fun with it and be practical. 

How to wear a day dress from day to night in winter today really has nothing to do with the current fall/winter fashion trends like ruched dresses, but more  about comfort and style.

While I would really love to wear my warmest blanket everywhere I go these days because subzero temperature is like a thing here in Canada, I can't. So I need to be inspired to take to give style a chance and not give lazy fashion power over me while at the same time staying warm.

How do I get inspired on what to wear in winter, you ask? Well I ask myself the same question too. Winter is the season to binge on tea and coffee while holding a box of tissues in one hand. Now the real job is how to get out of that funk every cold winter-y morning. Once I am successfully able to convince myself to step out of the amazing hot shower and get ready for the day, I ask myself these questions:

What is my go-to piece in winter when I think I have nothing to wear?
What am I comfortable wearing all day no matter where I go?
What makes me feel happy, sexy and chic?

The answer to all 3 questions would have easily been a pair of jeans but that is only half of my problem solved because then I have to decide on a top. Another reason why a pair of jeans may not cut it is because the key phrase in the second question was, "...all day no matter where I go". Now, knowing how I operate #multitask, I tend to be in multiple places in one day, and let's be honest, some places just require you leaving that jeans at home for a day. No?

A cute day dress is the answer to all three questions but in fall or winter, a sweater dress is just perfect - It is a one-piece with a lot to offer such as the fact that it is a great transitional winter to spring outfit. With all the benefits a sweater dress can bring, it can also be a bit challenging to style depending on the shape and size - Fitting is everything! So how do I make this work?

What I Wore

Fun fact: A dress is always trendy no matter what the fashion gods say is trending now and you can wear it all year round, but it all depends on how you style it, right?

I decided to wear a classic black and white cowl neck sweater dress that happens to be stretchy...but wait! I realized very quickly it was not as flattering as I would like. If you don't like dresses or care too much about fitting, you can just wear it as an over sized sweater and call it a day. In my case, I wanted to bring my sexy back, so I paired it with shapewear leggings for warmth and a more fitted look at the bottom, then I used a skinny belt to  cinch my waist for a more feminine and shapely look. Finally, I put on a pair of over-the-knee boots for a chic finish. Now tell me I can't walk out from the grocery store, to a dentist appointment, to the mall, to a casual business meeting, to a lunch date, then straight to a gallery opening event at 7 pm in downtown Toronto in this same outfit, and I will prove to you water is wet. Okay, I'll just chill already but I'm sure you get the drift.
