How to Style Your Sweater Dress this Winter

Love wearing dresses? You don’t have to forsake your love for fashion with a stylish sweater dress. Comfy and warming, it can keep you chic – as you try to ward off the freezing temperatures outside. Take your dress to the high streets with these fantastic styling tips.

Show Your Shoulder

Make a classic sweater dress look funky by pulling one side. This allows you to bare some skin – that of your sexy shoulder – even in the middle of winter. Embellish your bare skin by dressing your ears in gorgeous chandelier earrings.

Be Tight

It can be awfully cold outside – that’s why a sweater dress is best worn with a thick pair of tights. Not only can they keep your legs warm, the form-fit shape can balance the look too.

Pants are Perfect

A welcome alternative to tights-under-the-dress are pants. Be it denim or pleather, these trousers can make your sweater dress look more sophisticated.

Belt it Out

Most sweater dresses have the distinct sack style. Avoid looking drab and shapeless by cinching your dress with a fun belt. The general rule of thumb is: the thicker the fabric is, the thicker your belt should be.

Coats are Chic

If it is very chilly outside, then the best way to wear your sweater dress is with a coat. For stylish balance, remember this: the looser that sweater dress, the more structured your coat has to be.

Accessorize It

Some sweater dresses can be too plain. Add spice to your holiday look by wearing it with a variety of accessories. A long necklace, drop earrings or a bangle stack can transform your drab dress into a fab one.

Vote for Boots

Boots are the best, most warming you can wear with your sweater dress. Not only can it ward off the frostbite, the structure balances the loose fit of the sweater dress as well. An ankle boot is a popular option (best worn with tights,) although knee-high boots are good choices as well.
