Versatile Black Sweater Dress
Hello, and welcome back to 25 Days of Winter Fashion, my seasonal style collab with Cyndi at Grace + Beauty! It’s hard to believe we’re wrapping up this series on Friday. It’s a race to the finish, I’ll tell you. We photographed this outfit yesterday morning, and I have one more to shoot if I’m going to finish strong.
For today’s outfit, I have a really cute shaker stitch sweater dress that is only $40. The reviews are mixed, so I almost didn’t order it, but I’m glad I did. It does run big, so I’m wearing a small. I like that it’s not a body-con style, like so many sweater dresses are, but it’s not too baggy either.
The knit is on the thinner side, so I would definitely recommend wearing it with tights, and it’s also a bit lower cut in the front than what I typically wear, so you may want to wear a tank top underneath, depending on how well-endowed you are. All that said, this dress is perfect for throwing on with tights and boots for lunch with friends, for church on Sunday, or anytime you want to be a little more dressed up than jeans. I love the shaker knit detail and the little side slits at the hem.
I paired this dress with black tights and OTK boots, and I topped it off with my red wool pea coat. I thought the red made a lovely contrast against the all-black outfit, and it’s perfect for Christmastime.
For this post, I wanted to create a dressier look, something I’d wear out to dinner or to a holiday party, so I carried my leopard clutch (I also love this leopard pouch) and added a statement ring, but you could easily dress it down with ankle boots and a blanket scarf and more casual jewelry.
My ring and necklace are both from my Stella & Dot boutique, and right now, they’re running a Flash Sale — 50% off a HUGE selection of popular items. The sale ends tonight, 12/14, at 9pm PT, so don’t wait around if you see something you love. It’s a great opportunity for holiday shopping too!
