Dresses are usually summer staples, but change the material and add some fleece leggings and you just might have your go-to winter outfit. This month’s outfits are about the versatility and functionality of the sweater dress.
Step one: Fit the Occasion
This is an everyday, casual look that can be worn to most workplaces, school, running errands, meeting friends, dates, and casual events. Finding something that isn’t too tight and still maintains its function (i.e. keeping you warm) will guarantee class and comfort.
Step 2: Find Your Flavor
No, not your favorite ice cream flavor, but your personal taste in style. I’m someone who likes color and print, specifically African-inspired prints, so I like mixing those two elements in my look. I could incorporate more things, which I technically did because I also love heels, but I stick to a maximum of two elements to keep the look together. Colored fleece leggings not only add a pop of color but also keep my legs warm and not feel so “naked” and dry in the cold winter wind (cold wind + brown legs = everyday is Ash Wednesday. Keep em hydrated and covered!)
Step 3: Find Your Look
Actually go out and find your look, in stores, in magazines, on Instagram or Pinterest inspiration boards, or maybe it’s already in your closet. My entire look is from discount retailers (my favorite way to shop), and it’s possible for you to get the same look and functionality for the same dime, too!
