Wear it Wednesday | Dressember 2019 Accessories for Cold Climates

I’ve been a Dressember participant since 2014. Which means most of my experience with Dressember was in warm and mild winter weather of Central California. Last year, I made a huge effort to wear a dress EVERYDAY even when I was working from home or didn’t particularly want to get dressed. Since moving back to Colorado, Dressember has been different for me. This post is an update to one I wrote while doing Dressember in California…

Leggings & Tights – I couldn’t do Dressember without leggings and tights. After 2018, a friend recommended wool tights, she swears they are warmer than anything else she owns and she enjoys wearing dresses in December and the winter months. I snagged a pair in the summer and I’m eager to see how warm they keep me. Otherwise I wear Pact Apparel Leggings in Navy & Gray, and I have a few pairs of fleece lined tights from Target that are impressively warm.

Day 12

Dress slip – get one. This is a life changer to how I do Dressember, especially when wearing tights and leggings. It’s another layer between me and the cold plus it keeps my dress from riding up. Mine also features a wire free bodice so I don’t have to wear a bra with it!

Day 17

Socks – Knee high socks are a fun alternative to leggings on mild days. Ruffle ankle socks are a great alternative way to dress up ankle boots sans leggings and tall socks are a good alternative to tights and leggings on warmer December days. I tend to add warm wool socks to my not wool tights or leggings to keep my feet warm.

Day 22

Boots, lots of them – while living in CA, I was able to wear flats and even sandals during December. Now it’s most definitely boot season. I have tall snow boots, cowboy boots, rain boots, and 2 pairs of ankle boots (black and brown) I also plan to wear my Swedish clogs this winter as well.

Day 5

Layers – oh all the layers…getting to actually share what my entire dress looks like during Dressember in Colorado is a rarity. I layer with sweaters, cardigan, jackets, and vests. Not to mention scarves and snow parkas on really cold days.

Day 19

Whether you live somewhere where it’s mild in December or cold, you can do Dressember but you’ll want a strong supporting cast of layers and fibers to carry you through the month! Don’t forget you can wear jeans under dresses but they aren’t much warmer than leggings or tights in my opinion.

Day 10

Will you join me this December in wearing dresses or ties everyday to show that femininity is not a weakness? To stand up for the millions of people that are held in bondage today? Let’s be abolitionists, together.
