What To Wear With: A Sweater Dress

October 10, 2008 by Bryn

We recently showcased our top five favorite sweater dresses and since then have been asked by many readers just how exactly to wear one. Other than with a solid pair of Spanx (or those ingenious Tight-End tights – or both), there are some simple ways to complement this cozy frock that will bring you easily from the office to after 5 cocktails.  

Since a sweater dress is classic, you can play around with shoes and accessories – but don't go overboard if you plan to wear to the office. A pair of two-tone Mary Janes and one strong colorful cuff will up the ante on a neutral colored dress. You can add a delicate silver necklace for some sparkle at the neckline. Before heading out for drinks, throw on a winter white mid-length jacket to brighten the look, and toss your evening essentials into a daring compact clutch.
