5 Types of Winter Dresses and How To Style Them

The darker the winter months get, the more we find ourselves considering bundling up over feeling fabulous - making it harder and harder for us to find our #Mojoe this season. The truth is, we absolutely can rock a dress and style it up to look remarkable during any kind of weather!


In this guide, we go through our top 5 Joe Browns winter dresses and how to style them, including some bonus dresses, so you can both stay snug and parade your personality for all to see!

The Vintage Dress


So, you want a drop-dead throwback vintage look this season? Look no further than the Vintage Chic Dress, encompassing a timeless yet classic retro shape and pattern, but with a Joe Browns twist. Featuring a striking window pane check design in black and red, a cinched tie waist and full skirt, this is the perfect show stopping dress to go about your day, whatever the occasion. 


Pair with an Ooh La La Beret and the Modern Muse Leather Boots to capture a stunning Parisian-chic look. Top everything off and throw on a Unique Leather Jacket in dark teal. This phenomenal colour wonderfully compliments the bright pops of red throughout your outfit to create the ultimate vintage statement ensemble. 


Other dresses to try with this outfit are the Patchwork Floral Dress for a daring clash in prints, the Dare To Wear Dress for those wanting a vintage twist on an edgy outfit, or the Sassy Spot Dress for all-out retro romance this winter. 

The Maxi Dress


For a striking winter look from head to toe, opt for a maxi dress. A firm favourite of ours is Victoria’s Favourite Dress, with a stunning boho-inspired silhouette and the most charming ditsy floral pattern on a navy background. The shirred bodice promises a perfect fit when coupled with an exquisite square neckline for head-turning detail.


Get the true boho look and opt for a trio of teal with the All or Nothing Lace Up Boots, the San Lorenzo Leather Bag and the Lost Lagoons Fedora to top it all off. The teal accents couple with navy in the most glorious way, ensuring your personality truly shines bright. Lastly, finish off the entire outfit with the Charming Boho Necklace which will sit perfectly at the square neckline, drawing the eye to one of the most glorious features of the dress itself!


Other options of maxi dress for the trio of terrific teal accessories is The Velvet Perfection Dress to look effortlessly opulent in orange, the Perfect Paisley Dress for burgundy boho babe vibes or the Sophisticated Shirt Dress to go totally teal throughout!

The Wrap Dress


An essential dress every woman should have in her wardrobe, the wonderfully flattering wrap dress is a must-have to boost your confidence. Unleash your #mojoe in the flirty and flattering Remarkable Devore Dress. The deep jewel tones and waterfall sleeves makes up one of our most flattering cuts, and the wrap style sits on a perfect blend of smart and glamorous; making you look and feel like a million pounds!


Go all out goddess by pairing this dreamy delight with some classic black accessories to let the dress do all the talking. Our 70’s Velvet Skinny Scarf in black is a perfect pairing to give a glam, slightly retro look, while opting for the Perfectly Pretty Lace Shoes and matching bag promises a classic, timeless twist in the most remarkable way. 


Alternative dresses to match this wonderful way of styling are the Remarkable Wrap Dress for splashes of teal and yellow, the Rose Wrap Top Dress to keep the vintage structure, but with bold, statement florals or the Boho Belle Dress as a maxi option for an impactful boho look with just the right amount of drama.

The Mini Dress


Feel festive, fun and flirty all in one with The Ultimate Tunic; a show-stopping mini dress perfect for an iconic day to night look. Inspired by our love of vintage, this opulent tunic has just the right amount of Joe Browns edge when worn with black tights or leggings. The bold berry colour and velour fabric is offset by an asymmetric, scooped neckline and a floral insert down the front, creating a unique hemline, and one heck of a stunning mini dress!


Bundle up and feel Gatsby-esque with this 1920’s-inspired Limited Edition Joe’s Perfection Peacock Coat, don a pair of Ruby Stretchy Back Boots to keep your legs warm and bring some more statement 20’s vintage into the ensemble with the Sitting Pretty Wool Cloche


Recreate this look with a mandarin-inspired twist with the Marvellous Mandarin Tunic, keep it classic and understated for everyday with the Perfection Tunic or go smart and preppy with the Everyday Essential Dress.

The Novelty Dress


If a novel look is your cup of (novel)-tea then we have the perfect festive fit packed with fun, starting off with the Radiant Reindeer Dress! This beautiful piece has an adorable allover reindeer print on a navy backdrop, complemented by floral pops of white and red throughout. The flattering wrap style boasts gathering at the front, with the ruched effect cleverly hiding any over-indulgence Christmas dinner may have caused. The wrap style of the dress creates a flattering V-neck and the whole outfit is stretchy enough to keep you cosy all day long. 


For a Christmas outing, pair the dress with our outstanding Make Your Move Buckle Boots to give that added bit of class and a pop of festive colour. Add some more structure to the ensemble with our Military Must Have Coat to up the ante with vintage charm, and subtly decorate a lapel with the Christmas Cheer Wreath Pin for added sparkle and dimension. 


Other adorable novelty styles to pair these accessories with is The Christmas Day Dress featuring a stunning sweetheart neckline and spinning skirt. Alternatively, opt for the same pattern and wrap style with the Radiant Reindeer Top and your favourite black skinny jeans, or understate the novelty edge slightly with a fun and festive Written in The Stars Tunic.


Now the days are shorter and darker, we hope you’re still determined to brave the cold and unleash your #mojoe, no matter the weather. Let your outfit dictate how you hold yourself rather than the conditions you’re going out in.
