The 8 Best Dresses To Layer Up And Love All Winter Long

Winter may be here, but that doesn't mean you have to bundle up like Nanook Of The North. Dresses that work for fall can keep on working straight into winter, thanks to a few clever layering tricks. Don't believe us? We rounded up our favorite Gap dresses you can layer up for winter warmth — without looking like you just blew in from the Yukon.
That super-comfy sweatshirt dress? Make it brunch-worthy with nubby wool tights and cute ankle boots. Layer a long-sleeve, striped tee under that maxi-dress, and boom — you're more grunge-chic than Kate Moss in her Calvins. Slip a silk blouse under a sleeveless frock, pair with a colorful clutch and your hottest party heels, and voilà — you're the belle of the Christmas ball.
