STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Impress with a Sweater Dress

Hello again, fashion lovers! Even though it’s January, and the temperatures should be dropping, the weather on the East Coast has been pretty warm! Instead of covering up in tons of heavy clothing, on a warmer day, you can push the limits and try this look: a sweater dress. It is the absolute perfect combination of a winter outfit that still looks fabulous. These dresses use thicker fabrics that keep you nice and toasty when that cold wind blows. It is such a simple piece but needs to be a staple in your closet this winter!

What I love so much about simple pieces is that you can literally add ANYTHING to them in order to make it work. This Fashionista purchased her sweater dress at Forever 21, because it was flattering and a budget-friendly buy. She added knee-high socks, Steve Madden over-the-knee boots, a knit scarf, a leather jacket and a Michael Kors watch to add some flair. She is also wearing a deep cranberry lip, which completely complements the scarf detail. This Fashionista took a simple sweater dress, and made it so much more with added details.

If the weather is colder, you could throw on leggings or tights underneath the dress, or even add a fur coat if you’re feeling fierce. You can turn this outfit into a fabulous night time look as well by ditching the scarf, adding a heeled bootie, glamorous makeup and some extra bling. This Fashionista wore her outfit out to brunch with friends, but you could try the same look for so many different occasions—the choice is up to you! Details and layering make this style perfect for the changing of seasons and this Fashionista simply looks amazing!
