Those of you who follow me on twitter probably saw the big "who wants this", "I want this", and "oh, I want this too" tweets a couple days ago, when I stopped by one of my local Loft and found several of this gorgeous sweater dress on clearance in xxsp. So I grabbed 3. One for me and two for my favorite bloggers (you know who you are.) I couldn't wait to do a post on it because it is so figure flattering that I think every girl should have one in their closet. The number of ways to style it is endless. I just want to do a few basics here and if you feel adventurous I know just the place to look. See how Callandra wears a pencil skirt under a sweater dress.
First the dress itself.
Love the sideview the best. Nice thing about sweater dresses is that they cling to your body and shows the right amount of curve.
The least thing you can do is to belt it.
In the cool weather, you can add layer to a sweater dress easily. One way is to add a basic jacket. Shown here, I'm wearing a Loft scuba jacket.
This look can be achieved easily by pulling cowl neck down both shoulders and tilting it to one side. I learned this trick from Jean. I love this look for the weekend.
You can also throw a cardigan over the sweater dress, and I prefer the belted look over the non-belted look. The trick here is to select a cardigan that either has a very unique pattern (here, shown I was wearing Ikat print cardigan from Loft.) or a very bright color to offset the grey color and add interest.
Not shown here is another fantastic way of wearing sweater dresses -- with high boots.
What do you think, readers? Do you like sweater dresses? Would you wear them in the winter?
