If your signature style is a mini party dress, and you're suddenly fumbling over how to wear them in such preposterous weather - fear not!

Please do NOT stash away your dresses this winter. Our easy hacks to dressing up this chilly season will give you a source of relief - don't think you can't ooze sultry and tease when it's cold out!
Being cozy and sexy is the new, winning mantra. Us girlies have approximately 75% of dresses dominating our wardrobes, so it's justified to slip into them all throughout the year. It's all about pairing your minis with appropriate complements to knock your look out the park and feel confident all night long. Parties won't simmer down this year, and if you think you can't show off some legs without turning into a walking icicle, think again!
Black tights are your best friend.
Keep your legs warm in a variety of tights - varying in denier (the higher the denier, the warmer you'll be, right?) - from chic black to a variety of patterned ones, you really can't go wrong with black. Be it opaque or patterned, black is the signature staple for all dresses, and you can experiment with pairing just about any bold, striking Christmas colour with it.
For example, a sultrysequin dress basking in emerald glitter would go perfectly with anykind of black tights. If you haven't already heard, emeralds are the ultimate festive colour, so give your wardrobe some love with a green goddess look... This skater hem skirt is DIVINE, flirty and will have you feeling airy and free all night long. The chiffon is delicate, subtle and with that gorgeous sweetheart neckline, you'll be the show-stopper of the occasion.
Another shimmering evening option is the Cross Over Sleeveless Mini Skater Dress in red, now only £29. This wine-red mini wraps around you in the most exquisite manner, with a dripping cross-wrap neckline that will make this dress your new sexy go-to!
