As we all know, your girl is Florida grown. Winter is no longer spent on the beach where it’s sunny and 75 but instead, strolling down the cobblestones streets of Newbury where it’s 30 degrees with a chance of snow. If there was one thing I knew for certain within the first few months of moving to Boston, it was that the majority of my wardrobe would no longer be suitable. You see, I’m a girly girl at heart and even more so, I’m a Florida girl, and Florida girls LIVE in sundresses. Yes, when the winter months roll around, I move my sundresses to the back of my closet and break out my favorite winter trend, the #sweaterdress. Here’s my top 3 reasons why:
#1) The thought of having my legs covered up for a whole season seems peculiar to me. A sweater dress lets those legs get some air and exposure, but allows you to stay warm and cozy during the cold frigid months.
#2) The sweater dress trend has taken off this season and is available in many different options, allowing for so much room to play! I’ll be the first to admit I’ve rocked the same A-line sweater dress back to back recently. Here, I’m wearing a maxi style by Free People.
If you’re not in the maxi cut, there are plenty of knit sweater dresses out there that pair nicely with a great pair of #OTK boots. And for those lazy days when you still want to appear polished, there’s the oversized sweater dress that can be styled a million different ways. My favorite options to ensemble with: a pair of suede #OTK boots, a classic stiletto pump, a fur vest, a moto jacket, a blanket scarf, or the simple addition of a statement necklace.
#3) Since the sweater dress is available in so many cuts and styles, each and every body type can indulge in this trend. There’s a flattering option for everyone!
