    Must-Try Tip #1: Tights, Tights, Tights!

    Soft, opaque tights can give you the warmth and coverage you need when wearing a skirt or dress.

    Always keep a black or cream pair on standby, and indulge in cable knits, florals, stripes, or polka dots for when the mood strikes!

    Must-Try Tip #2: Layer With Long Sleeve Tees And Tops

    Instead of being the star of the show, make your dress part of an expertly layered look by adding a long sleeve stripe tee or collared oxford shirt underneath. A snug fit shirt works best in this case, and feel free to play with color and prints, too.

    Must-Try Tip #3: Wear Them Over Pants

    A shorter, A-line dress or shift can feel totally new over pants. Just be sure to look for a style with minimal bells and whistles—perhaps ones with a pull-on waistband and no pockets—to ensure no extra bumps or lumps.

    A cropped length pant is the optimal proportion, and a little sexy pointed flat helps balance the entire look.
