DAY TO NIGHT OUTFIT: THE SWEATER DRESS

How to Style a Sweaterdress

Nothing is easier to style than a sweater dress, and as such, I find them utterly magical.

See? Magic.

I have quite the collection of sweater dresses, and it’s hard for me to believe that this variegated turtleneck dress has never made an appearance on the blog. It went on sale at Anthropologie and sold out in just over a day, but have no fear, I’ve linked to a few similar options here, here, & here. Sweater dresses are also one of those pieces that seamlessly transition from day to night; another reason there are more than a few in my dress collection.

While I’m over the moon about the warmer temperatures and spring blooms popping up all over LA, I’m trying to eek in moments with a few of my favorite winter pieces before they’re packed up for next year. This grey wool coat has been an absolute staple this last month, and I’ve been wearing it with everything from a simple striped tee and jeans combo to the finishing touch over dresses for an evening out. And did I mention its mere $60 price tag? Total steal.

I’ve been especially into minimal silhouettes and color palettes lately. Lots of whites, creams, nudes, greys, & black. Instead of focusing on color, I’ve been playing with shape and texture. Consequently, I’ve been obsessing over so many pieces from the Austrian Fashion Labels (ie. C/meo, Keepsake, Finders Keepers, etc.), the epitome of spot on minimalist style. There are so many incredible shapes and textures to choose from. Bottom line? The attention to detail is impeccable. They’re just always a step ahead in my book. I’ve been narrowing down my list of must-haves, and I don’t think I’ll be able to live without this burgundy origami dress, this crossover white skirt, and this black piped white tank for spring.
