We need to get our hands on this sweater dress ASAP!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year: the time for sweater dresses, that is! We love when comfort and fashion can come together to create something beautiful yet functional, and sweater dresses are definitely up there on our list of fav fall attire.🍁
This sweater dress from The Mint Julep Boutique is absolutely perfect for any cool weather activities, sporting a neutral oatmeal color with a heathered knit that works for both casual events and slightly dressier functions. Take a closer look at those flutter sleeves too, which have a subtle, open knit near the shoulder for just a touch of detail, and the loose funnel neck is ideal for a comfortable fit while maintaining enough structure to look put together.
We could go on and on about why the sweater dress is a staple for any cold-weather wardrobe, but we definitely want to talk about accessories too!🤔 This model styled her sweater dress with brown leather riding boots, soft waves, and large, simple earrings. The entire outfit gives off an elegant-yet-comfortable feel, but the nice thing about sweater dresses is you can spice them up or dress them down to fit your personal tastes!
When styling a sweater dress, boots are always a good move, and we’re obsessed with these fitted over the knee ones. Or, you could always add some tights and rock a pair of adorable booties instead, and combat boots are also a nice touch if you’re looking for something more casual for a coffee run.☕ A cute bag is a must as well, preferably something sleek like this tote or even an adorable crossbody bag that can bring a hint of color to the overall outfit.
For jewelry, we’d take a page from the model’s book and pair this sweater dress with larger earrings. They can be geometric and eye-catching like these drop designs or something more refined and delicate like these gold earrings, but a larger size is nice for adding a hint of sparkle to an otherwise monochrome look. There’s not a ton of room for bracelets or necklaces, giving your engagement ring, bridal set, or any other fashion ring a chance to shine through and be the main event instead.🍾
Whether you’re already a fan of sweater dresses or are just coming around to the idea of them, it’s hard to deny the overall comfort they can bring to those chilly fall days. And if you’re looking for something a little more fitted, try a sweater dress like this one from Lulu’s instead—it offers a more form-fitting aesthetic that elevates the typical sweater dress appeal for more formal events or fall date nights!
