How to wear a sweater dress?

by - April 22, 2017


The weather is so nice out today it's just hard to stay indoors! I went to the PNE Forum to check out the Make It Vancouver. Stay tune for my next post about my experience there and my favorite vendors!

I found this cute simple sweater dress at the Frank + Oak warehouse sale this past weekend for a mere $25! What a steal! Although the women collection from Frank + Oak is a little limited, the quality is fantastic. A sweater dress is perfect for Spring weather with mild temperature and cool breeze. Here are some tips of what I think you can try to  style a sweater dress this season:

1. Lighten up the footwear
Because a sweater dress can be thick and chunky, you don't want to add more weight to your outfit by wearing tall boots or long socks during Spring. Opt for lighter and more airy shoes to avoid Wintery appearance. Peep-toe booties or mules are marvelous matches to relieve the heaviness from the sweater dress.

2. Exaggerate the accessories
A statement necklace or bracelet (pick one!) works very well with a simple sweater dress to supplement the simplicity with a bit of glam.

Large bags like totes or stylish backpacks are great accessories to pair with a sweater dress too!

3. Cinch the waist
Sweater dresses can be baggy and shapeless - solve that problem by wearing a skinny or statement belt. A skinny belt gives you shows off the small of your waist without taking away from your dress; a statement belt, like a statement necklace, adds sophistication to your outfit.

Try the unconventional way and tie a plaid shirt around your waist on top of your sweater dress. It's a detail that pumps up your outfit with character.

For those who are interested in my sweater dress, the Frank + Oak Sample sale is still happening until this Sunday, April 23! Check it out if you are interested. Hint hint: there's a Groupon for Frank + Oak online purchases too!
