Joy - that's a good idea! Layering is something I am not very good at doing.
Cat2 - I think the red and white would work well over jeans, and I will try that!! Great idea.
Fashintern - I haven't tried. The red leather might work and possibly the black blazer. I like your layered looks - layering suits you.
Thanks Rachy - I do wear thermals a bit....and this could work here too.
Bijou - I love your ideas. I really struggle with layering other than coats or blazers over a simple top. But maybe I can do a bit better this winter.
Sisi - thanks. I think these dresses would only work for another six weeks or so, not in the middle of winter. The orange dress is quite a thick cotton (almost like a denim) but I know what you mean - sometimes they just don't feel right.
What cool ideas Brooklyn. I will try the red and white dress over white jeans - maybe even tomorrow. I think I saw you wear a two skirt look last year and I have seen Deborah do this too. Really stylish and original. The orange dress is cotton - almost like a denim. I think it might be best with either a sweater over the top to make it look like a skirt, or with a fine gauge knit under. I can't see it working with a jacket somehow. Time to get creative though!!
Lyn - I think Brooklyn is at the advanced level with layering, and I am still in the beginners class!!
Suntiger, I know what you mean. I think it can work if the top is fine enough and especially with a fuller skirt. As a child I did it all the time with pinafores!!
Zaeobi - actually that could really work too. Might be enough for the next few weeks. I don't see myself wearing these dresses in mid winter, only just for a few more weeks in our mild autumn.
