Freeze, Bin, or Spend more...Christmas dress problem

I have at least two dresses that are winter party style that have never been out of the wardrobe as they are sleeveless and I'm not strong enough to grit my teeth and freeze, but I can't find any thing warm to wear with them.
They are now I think of it, of a type..cap sleeved and fitted but delicate..lace and beads..and empire line
I have tried all kinds of knitwear but it either seems too brutal or is the wrong shape. And I'm no good with a shawl as I'm clumsy as anything and keep getting myself caught up in things, people, furniture...
Is there a thing I've missed, an item of clothing that would make these wearable ? Or is it the next charity bag for them ?

Isn't the idea that you wear a coat to the event, and then inside it's warm enough to just wear the dress?

That's what I do anyway.

You would think so wouldn't you. I think I must just know too many people who don't like turning their heating up..or even on come to that.
I have seriously considered whether I could get away with thermals underneath!

Armoury. Sort of tights for your arms. Mary Portas does them.
