A mini-dress like this one, in any colour or print, worn over a rollneck, thick opaque tights and Dr Martens or ankle boots is a completely failsafe winter silhouette. Mix up the colours and textures of your rollnecks, heel height of your footwear, and even swap out the opaques for sheer tights if you’re feeling saucy; this is exactly the sort of formula I stick to when I don’t have the time or energy to put much thought into an outfit in a morning.
For a day out last week, albeit before the Polar Beast from the Depths of Hell (or whatever) hit, I layered my yellow checked mini dress up with a ribbed rollneck, Dr Martens shoes and a classic Fred Perry mens jumper. Think Clueless meets This Is England, if we’re really reaching for a cultural reference point. I wore the same outfit sans jumper plus a faux leather jacket and ankle boots for a gig too – can’t go wrong.
