You’ll find me in sweater dresses this season
When I think of winter dressing, I think warm and cosy. Anything to combat the cold is at the top of my list.
Layers upon layers are often the result and a few weeks in I grow tired of being drowned in fabric.
It is difficult to strike the right balance between practical and fashion-forward when A/W comes around.
Anyone else struggle with this?
I habitually reach for similar outfits and flinch at the thought of having any sartorial effort applied to my winter looks.
It’s enlightening to find pieces that get the balance right, and when I do, I hold onto them season after season.
Sweater dresses are one of those pieces; they’re practical, comfortable and stylish: triple win. They serve the best of both worlds meaning we get the comfort and cosiness of our go-to sweater and the figure-flattering confidence of dresses.
Styling sweater dresses are simple; they work for every occasion.
If the weather is mild enough to wear without any heavy layers, style with knee-high boots and a leather jacket.
Wear hair loose, and add a few pieces of jewellery. Edgy.
If we’re feeling more casual, try a cute pair of sneakers and a tote bag. Classic.
For an evening look, go with strappy heels and a hint of rouge on the lips for elegant night-time attire. Sophisticated.
Sweater dresses look fabulous in the dark depths of winter too.
Wear with a faux fur coat, thick black tights and ankle boots, an ensemble we can rely on from Fall to Spring. Cosy.
Find The Right Style For You
There’s a variety of styles to choose from.
Short styles work well with boots and cropped jackets, whereas longer lengths are perfect with flats.
Leather mules as an accessory come front of mind.
Chunkier knits with a turtleneck are classic and easy dressing.
Ribbed styles have paved their way into A/W trends this year.
Their slinky nature will flatter most body shapes and the vertical stitching is incredibly slimming.
Let’s all slip into our sweater dresses and make this the season of snuggly style.
