I was never a fan of sweater dresses. The ones that I had seen always seemed to look to hot and itchy or they were stretchy so very body conscious, which I totally don’t get – doesn’t that defeat the purpose of a sweater in the first place?
When I received this sweater dress as a gift, I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. At first I thought perhaps to exchange for something else but I decided to try and make it work as this is not something I would normally buy for myself, I took it as a challenge :P. The dress itself is a bit too big for me, but perhaps that’s a good thing. If it were my size then I would probably feel like it was too tight.
Dress: Tommy Hilfiger size S
Necklace: mark by Avon
Boots: old, can’t remember!
Tights: no clue – but I’m wearing two pairs!
The above picture was taken in terrible lighting when the husband and I were in Ottawa. This dress ended up being fantastic for bundling up – it was warm but surprisingly I didn’t overheat!
As the weather gets cooler I don’t like having my arms exposed, I’m just generally always cold so I’m always looking for ways to layer!
Same outfit, differences are:
Boots: Locale size 8! (see my post here – they had no 1/2 sizes so I had to up an entire size)
Shirt (under sweater dress): Old Navy
Tights: unknown – but they are thicker than the ones I doubled above
Necklace: also mark by Avon
I’ve actually been wearing this dress quite often this year – I’m really happy I was able to make it work!
For work I think I will pair it with a blazer on top (a blazer always dresses things up!) and I think this is an item that’s pretty timeless so I’m sure I will be wearing it for the next few years. I’ll have to try it with a thicker belt and perhaps go bold with some coloured tights!
Are you a fan of the sweater dress? Do you have any other suggestions for me?
