You can winterise a closet full of strapless dresses by pairing them with a few warm-weather fashion staples, such as soft cardigan sweaters, shawls, fitted jackets and pretty scarves. Bright and floral pattern dresses will look like a breath of fresh spring air during the cold winter months, and they can help put you in a cheery mood on a dreary weather day. You can wear your favourite strapless dress all through the winter months by modifying it for office attire or party wear.

Add a cardigan in soft material, such as cashmere, to a strapless dress to add instant warmth and style. Wear a sequinned cardigan over a little black dress for an evening out, or wear it belted with a thin belt at the office. Wear a brightly coloured cardigan to add a fresh pop of colour to a neutral dress.
Wear a fitted jacket over the strapless dress to create a flattering silhouette and to winterise it. You can choose a cropped, bolero-style jacket or one with waist darts for a fitted look. Leave the jacket open to reveal your dress while adding warmth to your shoulders and arms. Choose a dark denim jacket for casual day wear, or a beaded or silk version for a night on the town.
Wrap a shawl around your shoulders if you live in climate that experiences mild winter temperatures. If you are wearing a strapless dress during the daytime, a knitted shawl may offer enough warmth while looking chic at the same time. Choose a heavy knit weave for maximum exposure.
Tie on a fashionable scarf to add elegance and sophistication to a strapless dress in the winter. Choose a scarf in a thin but cosy material, such as cashmere, to add warmth without too much bulk. If your dress is a basic colour, experiment with floral patterns and bright hues to show your fashion creativity.
For a retro look, wear a T-shirt under a strapless dress. If your dress is a summery floral pattern, wear a solid colour T-shirt underneath, and add a pair of sweater-knit tights to add warmth and style to the look. Choose a T-shirt that is made of a thin fabric and has small, cap sleeves so that it isn't too bulky.
