They’re cozy, they’re casual, and they look fabulous after 40! Everyone needs a sweater dress. Here’s how to style one.
1. Pair a Sweater Dress With Boots
Boots and sweater dresses go hand in hand to give you that relaxed, classy look. Tall boots are classic and elegant. Ankle booties are a little more edgy and modern. Boots with a stacked heel complement earthy knits by adding balance. Suede boots look fab!
2. Belt It
Some knits are loose or rather chunky and hide your waist, so here’s an idea. Try cinching in your knit dress with a beautiful belt. The chunkier the knit, the more substantial and wider the belt. Wear it around your waist or loosely just below on an angle.
3. Wear a Sweater Dress with Leggings
Have you ever come across a sweater dress that you wanted to buy, but you thought it was too short? Instead of passing it up, all yo need to do is add a pair of black leggings to your outfit. Leggings turn your sweater dress into a long top creating a look that is hip and modern.
4. Try a Turtleneck or Cowl Neck
Turtleneck sweater dresses are a fashion favorite. Cowl necks are flattering too. Here’s one that is sort of in between. So chic!
5. Dress it Up
The finer the knit, the more formal the sweater dress and the easier it is to dress it up. This ladylike tiered sweater dress with the saucy ruffle is already on the road to dressy. Add suede heels, gold jewelry, and a sophisticated structured bag, and you’re ready for a special evening out.
6. Wear Tights
Heavy knits call for heavy hose. Sweater dresses look great when you wear them with or opaque or semi-opaque tights. Black is the best color because it is very slimming color on your legs, and it makes a perfect backdrop for any other color or pattern.
If you like a touch of whimsy, try patterned tights with your sweater dress. You can choose anything from dotted to swirly, to striped. To learn more about the basics of wearing patterned tights, check out this post.
