STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: A Fresh Take on Sweater Weather

Sweaters are always a must-have in any Fashionista’s winter wardrobe; however, with the unseasonably warm temperatures the Northeast has been experiencing, it’s been putting a cramp in our style. So rather than opting out of sweater weather altogether, this Fashionista donned a V-neck sweater dress accessorized with mixed metal jewelry.

Not only is the sweater dress cute, but it’s also comfortable and versatile. This Fashionista also wore a pair of trendy over-the-knee socks from Forever 21 with brown leather boots she purchased at Charlotte Russe, along with a small quilted cross-body bag to match.

Sweater dresses can easily transition from a shopping trip with your friends to date night to family parties, as they can be dressed up or down, depending on the accessories you choose. For a polished and preppy daytime look, one could add a scarf and swap the boots for a pair of chic flats like these by Tory Burch. For date night, this Fashionista could play up her long legs with a pair of over-the-knee heeled boots from Forever 21, statement jewelry and a smoky eye. When temperatures start to dip, it can also be paired with tights or leggings, along with every college student’s guilty pleasure—UGGs.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I really like having basic pieces that I can wear with almost anything, and shift from day to night or anything in between. Basics can give you such a variety of looks. A piece looks so different and fresh depending on what you wear with it. People will never know you’re wearing the same thing and it’s college budget friendly.”
