Sweater Dress

Black sweater dress with floral embroidery, Melton. White sweater, Express. Black, lace edge camisole, NY & Co. Black tights, Danskin. Black, round-toe pumps with cutouts, Etienne Aigner. Cameo choker, vintage.

You would THINK that a sweater dress would be simple, easy dressing. Just wrap and go, right? No. First of all, I only wear this dress when the weather is cool, so I need tights. Once I put tights on, I need a slip so that the skirt doesn’t creep up my thighs as I walk. The top of the dress is too low-cut for work, so I need to wear a cami beneath. Finally, because the dress is sleeveless, I need to wear a top to cover my arms.

I’ve tried a number of sweaters, shrugs, and jackets over this dress and I think I’ve finally found the top that works. I’d prefer this sweater to be a little more cream than white, but the fit and shape are so good that I really can’t complain. It looks far better than the black shrug I wore with this dress on October 6th.

lose that white top, lose the heels and pair with boots! lose the necklace; wear long earrings and let wisps of hair down about your face--you will look fabulous
