The Only Sweater Dress You Need This Fall
Sometimes with clothing, it’s love at first sight. You try on a dress, or slide your foot into a shoe, and you know immediately that you’re going home together. That feeling is exactly why I can never let go of in person shopping (and also because I never remember to return things.) I was actually at the store looking for cute pajamas when I found this sweater dress and immediately had to have it. Love always finds you when you’re not looking for it!
I love a versatile piece, and this dress hits all the sweet spots. I decided to dress it up a bit for this look with sky-high brown stilettos, but it can easily be dressed down as well. I’d pair it with some loafers, a printed scarf, and a denim jacket for a more casual look. Plus, you can also wear it as an open cardigan! It’s literally a win-win item.
And listen, as a pear-shaped woman, I have a lot of opinions on sweater dresses. Most of the time, I can’t wear them without looking like a brick. As much as I would love to rock the Ariana Grande style of an oversized sweater dress and boots, I can’t do it without looking like a blob. My waist needs definition. Since it’s not the 80s anymore
and I refuse to accept they’re coming back in style I love that this dress comes with a dainty little waist tie instead of needing my own chunky belt to create that definition.
Finally, as if I don’t have enough reasons to love this dress, I fell for the tortoise shell buttons. Yes, it’s the little things. The buttons on this dress actually inspired me to pick up these earrings as well and ask myself why I don’t own tortoise shell glasses yet. Statement earrings have been huge this year with the trend spanning both spring and fall. These are just the latest addition to my growing collection. I don’t have the self-control not to grab a new pair whenever I go out shopping!
Here Comes Sweater weather
If you’re currently following me on instagram, you can keep an eye out over the next few weeks for all the different ways I style this dress! I’m only taking this thing off to shower and sleep, I swear. Fall weather is in full swing and I’m so excited to dress for it! Are you a fan of sweater dresses? What’s the last clothing item you fell in love with while shopping? As always, let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
Lots of love,
