The colder seasons can be a little uninspiring when it comes to making a bit more effort than daytime dressing requires, but these outfit suggestions should give you a bit of inspiration — and you can look at them from the comfort of your bed, should the thought of actually going out prove far too arduous.

Layering is your friend when it comes to wearing dresses in winter — a voluminous-sleeved printed number works well layered over a turtleneck, and fabrics are also something to look out for; try velvet for extra warmth.
