Layering for warmth

If you’re wearing a long sleeve swing dress in a colder area of the country, you might be wondering how you can add layers. Living in Vermont, I totally understand. And, I wear layers for warmth all of the time. 

  • Layer a cute vest over your swing dress. It provides interesting texture and contrast and switches up your look just a little.
  • Cold weather is here! Pair this swing dress with a coordinating blanket scarf, add a great wool fedora and ankle boots, and you have a pulled-together look that will keep the chill out too.
  • Don’t forget our other must-have accessory this Fall & Winter – the kimono. Layer a heavier kimono with a little length over your dress to add a bit of warmth without feeling bulky. You’ll be right on-trend with this long sleeve swing dress look.
