Dresses in the cold…amiright? But cozy sweater dresses just seem like such a good idea this time of year. My solution to not freezing, yet not having to cover every inch of skin = a cute warm coat, sexy tights, and over-the-knee boots.
I’m not a typical dress-lover, but I am, however, loving this layered look that’s got just a *hint* of sexiness — as opposed to a super-sexy bombshell kinda dress. Keeping it mostly covered with a peek of legs in leopard tights is way more ‘Laura.’ I honestly arrived at this combo with some prompting from Shana… “try tights…it’ll be fun(ny),”* she said — and here we are. A new favorite outfit.
Color me surprised.
I guess sometimes you gotta put away the black jeans and combat boots, and try something new, friends. But don’t get used to me in dresses too much. Hahaha.

Warmed Up Winter Looks: Cute Coat + Cozy Dress + Sexy Tights + OTK Boots
That’s a lot of plus signs, but it works. What else to say about this combo when I’m a little brain-fried from all the sales? Let’s see. (Gets more coffee). With this look, I matched my coat to my dress and my tights to my boots. I’d also try matching everything but your boots or your coat. That keeps the look cohesive and intentional instead of trying to force too many colors or patterns into one ensemble.
Gap Plaid Coat (s) // SO cozy and soft and cute. I adore this coat, and it’s on sale!
Gray Sweater Dress (similar) // Well darn, mine is H&M but sold out now. But there are lots of cute options below, too.
Leopard Tights // Love. Sexy and fun, and with OTK boots it’s just the perfect amount of tights.
Marc Fisher OTK Boots (similar) // Highly recommend this brand of OTK boots. These are super similar to the ones Gwen and I have, and both adore. TTS, stretchy and they stay up. And they’re also on sale right now!
