A Different Take On The Sweater Dress

Ah, the sweater dress. It's probably one of the most liked pieces in your work wardrobe. There's nothing better than getting up in the morning and throwing on a dress...that also doubles as a sweater, especially for those of us who live up north.  There's nothing stuffy or uncomfortable about it and you can dress it up or dress it down depending on how you feel...or how late you've slept in!

Dressing down a sweater dress is easy. Put on the dress. Add tights and boots. Done.

Dressing up a sweater dress, on the other hand, takes a bit more of an effort. The one that I have on below is sleeveless on top so wearing something underneath is a must. Either a long or short sleeved blouse works perfectly. One workplace fashion rule that I feel very strongly about is that tank tops are never ever appropriate at the office without wearing something over top. I'll save that rant for a different post though. If you want to dress it up even more, add a blazer. And of course you know I'm a huge fan of accentuating a waist with a skinny belt. Lastly, slip on some boots or pumps and you're done!
