Sweater dress season is upon us! I sound like a broken record but I love, love, love to wear dresses all year long. Today I wanted to share one of my new favorite dresses, in my favorite color, styled 2 different ways. Plus as an added bonus, at the bottom of this post I’m giving more tips on how to style dresses in the cooler months.
The dress I’m taking about today is a turtleneck sweater dress from Amazon. I’m wearing a small and the fit is TTS. This dress comes in a lot of other colors too. I’m 5’7″ and the length is great on me.
Look 1 – Casual
Can I be any more predictable? I’m all about comfort and casual styling. Every now and then I like to dress it up but casual is my go-to. This style is so simple. Sweater dress + sneakers. How cute would a ball cap be too?
Look 2 – Dressier
Any excuse to wear leopard print booties, right! I love the combo of this emerald green with the leopard print. Another dressier look option would be a taller boot or an over the knee boot. See my tips below about adding a belt.
Tips To Style A Dress In The Fall
Add a Belt
No matter the season you can add a belt to a dress. Be mindful of the materials you choose when styling for the Fall. For example: rattan and whicker don’t really fit the season. Adding a belt in the fall not only helps give you shape but also works great when layering with jackets and blazers. It makes the whole look appear more polished. Speaking of jackets and blazers…
Add a Jacket
This seems obvious not only for the layering look that is oh-so-popular in the Fall but for warmth. Adding a denim jacket tends to be a more casual way to style.
Add a Cardigan or Blazer
This differs from adding a jacket in that the cardigan and blazer add to the whole outfit in a way that looks intentional instead of ‘oh crap, it’s going to be cold and I need another layer’. Make sense? A blazer tends to be more formal. If you’re going for a casual chic vibe then wearing a blazer and sneakers is the way to go.
Add a sweater
A way to get more use out of your Spring and Summer dresses is to layer them under a sweater. Ta-da, now it’s a skirt and another way to wear it through the cooler temps.
