Most fashion gurus highly recommend having a staple of classic pieces in your wardrobe. These pieces never go out of style and can always save you from any fashion emergencies. Among them is the classic black dress, a great pair of jeans and of course, a great-fitting white dress. For white dresses, you wouldn’t normally instantly think of a white sweater dress because you might think it may make you look frumpy and old. However, the white sweater dress is actually fast-becoming a fashion trend because of its versatility. How can you make the white sweater dress work for you?
Simplicity at its best
What makes the white sweater dress attractive is its simplicity. The cut is very straightforward and the color though quite very basic is the reason why your white sweater dress stands out. You need not add too many accessories to it because it’s already a great piece by itself. All you need to do is pair it with your favorite pair of shoes or boots and you’re good to go.
Value for your money
Normally, when you buy a dress, you don’t consider it matching with anything else but your shoes and bags and possibly other accessories. But the white sweater dress really does give you value for your money because you can still pair it with other pieces in your closet, like your coat and a pair of pants or leggings (depending on the dress’ length). With the right combination, you can take your white sweater dress from casual to sophisticated in just a few minutes.
Though your dress is perfect on its own, you can still take it to the next level with the restrained addition of the right accessories. White sweater dresses may drown a slight figure if you’re not careful. To create just the right silhouette, you may cinch a belt across your waist. A different-colored belt can add a splash of color to your white sweater dress and break the monotony.
Shoes and boots are going to be the perfect partner for a white sweater dress. A dashing pair of low-heeled shoes, a slinky pair of high heels, ankle boots and knee boots – these are all great partners to a white sweater dress. All you need to do is figure out which pair works with the length and texture of your white sweater dress. If your dress is short, about 4 inches above the knee, then you can probably wear that with knee boots. Ankle boots are also compatible with a short dress and if it’s a little too cold outside, you can even add a pair of tights or leggings to give a little warmth.
Add a few layers
The sweater dress is perfect for the cold season because even though the fabric envelopes you in warmth, you can still look fashionable and chic. If your white sweater dress is still a little too cold for your taste, you can add a scarf to be draped around your neck or shoulders for additional warmth. A stylish jacket can complement or contrast with your dress and keep you warm as well.
