A. Skip the shawl this season and opt for one of these options instead:
1. Add a skinny belt over your dress to enhance your waist and layer a cashmere cardigan over it. Alternatively, you can wear the belt over the cardigan. This look also works with a long cardigan that ends just above the hem of the skirt, worn open with a cinched belt to complete the look. Dress up the outfit with a statement necklace, tights and party pumps.
2. A fitted tuxedo jacket is a modern option to layer over your dress this season.
3. A cropped faux fur jacket is chic and party perfect.
