Keep It Light The Best Layering Dress

The best winter dresses don’t all have to be knit or chunky sweater dresses. After all, warmth isn’t really a one-textile job, but takes a whole team of layering to get the job done. That’s why the best way to prepare your winter wardrobe is to stock up on layering basics. And the best part about doing it is that you can wear them for the remainder of fall until the temperature drops. The ANTHROPOLOGIE Ruched Dress is at the top of our favorites list. Perfectly stylish on its own, it also makes a great companion for layering with cardigans and/or coats. Dresses like these not only make it easy to get ready, but they also help infuse a bit more style in your closet. After all, we’re calling them the best winter dresses for a reason!
