Fashion Question: Can This Long Sweater Go Over A Dress?

Dear Deb,

I have sent you two photos and need your help. I feel this dress is age appropriate.  It is not black.  It is not baggy.  It is the right length.

  1.  Do you think that I have “overdone” the cream with the hose and shoes? I am only 5’2’’.  So I try to follow rules for petites.  Unfortunately, the dress doesn’t really have a sleeve to it.  So I wore it with the wrap and I think that looks nice.
  2. I also have this rust colored sweater.  What do you think?  Can I wear it over the dress?

I am enjoying your website and I have told lots of other women about it!  Thank you.   ~Dianna

This is a great dress and it fits you’re lovely figure well.  While the sheer wrap on the left does technically match the dress, what has happened is that you have started mixing up styles and this is why you’re feeling like there might be something going wrong here!
