Just because its winter doesn’t mean you can’t rock a statement gorgeous dress and still stay warm. This week we had to help those that just don’t know what to wear when it comes to attending cocktail events. We picked these styles of dresses as it’s easy to make a statement and pair it up with something to keep warm. A designer that meets every woman’s dream is Stacey Tobin Naidoo, Owner of Miss Boss Couture. She and designer Brittany Kull never fall short when it comes to giving what woman want. We had to have her on set to not only to show you what’s hot for winter but to introduce the new face of Miss Boss Couture Danica J Paulsen.
Tip: This style of stress can be tricky to layer as there’s a lot going on and it’s quite structured so keep it simple by adding a fluffy coat. It will elevate the look but at least you’ll be warm and won’t look crazy trying to pair such a detailed dress.

Tip: If your dress has dramatic sleeves or anything that will be hidden with a jacket/coat then let the dress shine by pairing the dress with a sleeveless or long sleeve polo neck top underneath. You’ll be warm and show off your dress at the same time.

Tip: With such a statement dress especially when you have rouging involved, you have to be extra careful what you choose to pair it with. We say keep it simple and just throw a wool blazer or coat that sits just on your waist over the shoulders.
