I haven’t posted nearly enough dresses this fall, I know. I don’t wear them much, and I have a hard time finding ones I like, but this ruffle cuff sweater dress checks all the boxes.
First of all, the color is stunning, but if magenta isn’t your favorite, it also comes in grey, camel, and black. I wore it to church one Sunday and then all afternoon visiting the in-laws, and I was comfortable all day long. It holds its shape well too.
It’s soft and comfortable with just enough shape to be flattering, but it doesn’t cling, and I absolutely love the ruffle sleeve detail.
This dress is on sale at Banana Republic right now for 40% off, bringing it down to $89.40 in cart, and I’m wearing the small. It also comes in tall sizes if this length is out of your comfort zone. I’m about 5’5″, for reference.
I often get asked what I wear under dresses and how I get them not to stick to me. This slip is my secret weapon. I have a medium, and I wear it under all my dresses. I’m also wearing Spanx tights. I really like how they hold me in, and they don’t slide down.
I kept the look simple with black tights and black suede OTK boots. I might trade my boots for suede pumps if the occasion called for it, but I really like the boots with this. Knee-high boots would work too.
I accessorized with this beaded layer necklace. I like the silver and hematite tones against the magenta, and a station necklace makes a nice statement while not overwhelming the look.
I wore my wool cocoon coat over this dress the day I wore it, and it’s the perfect compliment. The grey is gorgeous with the magenta, and the styles compliment one another perfectly. Both are classic and dressy but not formal.
FYI, this coat is now 50% off — crazy but true! And it is stocked in all sizes in the grey. For reference, I have the 6. I recommend sizing down one from your normal dress size.
This outfit is a great all-winter look you could wear to church, out to dinner, and maybe even in some office settings, but it would also make a nice holiday party look for certain venues.
