The Simple Hack That Makes Wearing A Sweater Over
A Dress
Look Smooth
And Seamless
Dress It Up
The key to achieving a smooth and seamless look is a cropped sweater, because normal sweaters can make you look frumpy because they cover up your figure. You can dress it up by choosing a fancier dress, and then styling the rest of the surrounding outfit.
Keep It Casual
If your style is more chill, neutrals are your best friend, but that doesn't mean you can't wear patterns. One piece should have a print, and the other should be a solid color, pairing it with a pair of Converse or Vans so you're comfortable all day long.
Match The Shoes
By choosing a pair of shoes the same color as your dress (or at least in the same color palette), the look is more cohesive, and it lets the sweater take the spotlight. Try finding a dress with a shorter hem so you can really show off your shoes.
Play With Color
If you want to break up the neutral tones in your wardrobe, you don't have to go overboard with the color additions. If your dress or sweater has a print, pick one color to use as the focal point so it won't take away from the outfit and instead enhance it.
Flirtatious Side
A shorter dress is already playful, but if you pair it with a neutral sweater, you’ll kick things up a notch. To achieve the perfect look, try pairing the dress with knee-high boots also in a neutral color to tie it all together.
