During the holiday season, your winter dress search probably went a little like this: Realize you need something to wear to the dozen or so parties you’ve committed to, spend hours looking for a festive dress that might flatter you, wait for it to arrive at your door, then settle into the disappointment of feeling like a disco ball—lest you want to send out the search-and-rescue team yet again. It can be, well, exhausting.
But after the holidays? You can forget all the unforgiving sparkle and fringe and instead focus on what really matters: feeling comfortable—and there’s nothing comfortable about a skin-tight mini dress.
In the spirit of January, we found 15 winter dresses—including cozy sweater dresses, printed midi-styles that are great for work, and even a silky halter that’ll look great layered atop a turtleneck—to shop now. And if you’re feeling particularly ambitious, a few of them would even look great styled over a pair of wide-leg pants. Click through to see what we mean.
