How To Style A Sweater Dress

If you live in a frigid winter climate like I do,  it is difficult to wear dresses in winter.  But I get tired of wearing pants all winter long and I long to wear dresses.  Tights and tall boots (especially the over-the-knee ones) are key to keeping warm in dresses in winter.  Choosing long sleeve, longer dress lengths, and knit dresses also help to keep warm in a dress in winter.

When I received my October box from Stitch Fix, I was estactic to see a sweater dress in my Fix.  I  really need winter dresses, especially sweater dresses. This dress is by Fortune and Ivy and is called "Elisha Cowl Neck Hacci Knit Dress". 


I styled my dress with black tights and black booties.


As an outer layer, I chose this green/black cardigan from CJBanks (old).


The length of the cardigan is almost as long as the dress.  I love the edgy grommet detail on the sides.


My booties are a black suede with a kitten heel (old).


In honor of fall, I chose to wear this pretty leaf necklace from an old Stitch Fix box.


I also received this handbag from Urban Expressions in my October box.  It can be used as a handbag or a cross body bag.  In this post, I'm featuring it as a handbag.


The name of the bag is "Maison Whipstitch Crossbody Bag".    I just love the whipstitch trim.


A black sweater dress has endless styling opportunities.  Any color of cardigan would work with it, along with blazers and jackets.  


I couldn't find any of these old or Stitch Fix pieces on-line for you, but here are many similar pieces.  Dress:  HERE, HERE, and HERE,  Cross Body Bag HERE,  Leaf Necklace HERE, Black Booties HERE,  Green Cardigan HERE and HERE.

Have A Great Day!  Amy

  4. I rarely wear monochromatic looks but I really like this! I like the look of the dark tights and dark heels or booties. And the green cardigan works so well to add some color. Very chic look, ladybug!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I like the dark tights/dark shoes look too cause it elongates the legs.

  5. Look at you getting your sexy on! I love the dress, and it looks great on you. You can get a lot of mileage out it with cardigans, blazers, short or high boots. I'm giving you a 10!

  10. A very elegant outfit! Such a beautiful LBD for cold weather! Your green/black cardigan goes so well with it and I love the grommet detail. Black tights add warmth but also a classy look. The leaf pendant is perfect for this dress.
