Take a few hints from Alexa Chung to add some spice to hum-drum winter wear.
- Black tights add immediate chic points (and warmth).
- You can still wear your shorter dresses - layer them with tights and and long shirts to beat the chill.
- Don't forget about denim; even jean shorts can be worn in winter (the more shredded, the better).
- Belting is essential when wearing chunky layers to flatter the figure.
