While winter has its wonders, the season of snow can make it tough to dress in anything other than thermal. Finding yourself in a style slump? Upgrade your look with our fun printed winter dresses! They easily pair with leggings, chunky sweaters, and booties for endless winter looks. For inspiration, we asked our team to share how they style their Mata dresses all-winter-long.
Winter Dresses: 3 Looks for Your Winter Wardrobe
#1: A shirtdress makes for the perfect winter dress, especially in a plaid print!

Mata of the Moment: Sabina Shirtdress
I love all the Sabina Shirtdresses Mata has made. I own three! They're flattering, comfortable and just the right length for a shorter gal like myself. The Rose Wine color is my favorite because it's a nice warm tone that is seasonally appropriate. I love plaid, and shirt dresses in general, these days. They are easy to throw on, and go well with any boot. You can dress one up with a heel or go casual with some lace ups.
#2: Sleeveless dresses can be perfect winter dresses – just pair with a warm layer underneath!

Mata of the Moment: Fresco Shift Dress
This dress is one of those unicorn pieces that you can style endlessly. I love a versatile piece and stretching my closet as much as possible, and this works so well for that. The jumper/overall vibe is a winter favorite of mine--layering this over a black turtleneck plus knee boots is an easy everyday look, plus it's super comfy. A slim crewneck sweater underneath works, too. I've been into closet tracking lately (yes, I have a spreadsheet), so it's thrilling that this summer dress also works for winter. My dog Toby and I are religious dog beach attendees, and I lived in this as a sophisticated beach cover up. It easily transitioned from Lake Michigan to cocktails at the Warbler (I add these earrings). Now in winter, it's still a go-to. A definite closet win.
#3: Brighten your cold weather wardrobe with winter dresses that pop!

Mata of the Moment: Nina Ruched dress
As someone who often falls somewhere in between two sizes at most department stores, my go-to easy fit is often knit - it’s just a bonus that this one happens to be organic and fair trade. For me, the Nina Ruched dress in Twilight is a good combo of figure flattering and subtle, which makes it a good choice for me. I can pair it with a cardigan when working at Mata or just add some jewelry to dress up a bit for date night.
Though I’ve always loved to design with bright colors, before working at Mata my wardrobe was a sea of different shades of black. Adding color AND prints to my wardrobe has been a bit of a process. I love that this beautiful blue is bright, but also acts as a neutral – it goes with most everything. When I brought this outfit home to try it out, my boyfriend said it reminded him of something Joan Holloway would wear. As a big fan of the women of Mad Men, I was sold.
Winter Dresses for Any Wardrobe
When temperature highs are in the 30s, getting dressed (heck, getting out of bed) feels like an Olympic sport. Add a pep to your step during these dreary days and rock a patterned winter dress.
