WHY YOU NEED A SWEATER DRESS IN YOUR CLOSET…

I don’t know about you, but sweater dresses are a must in a winter wardrobe. You just can not go wrong with them. There’s no right or wrong way to style them. While we get styling inspirations here and there, please remember your personal style is what makes you unique. Whether you choose to layer with other pieces, keep it minimalisitic, casual or dress it up, sweater dresses can be versatile too. We live in a real world and due to life’s expectations, sometimes one doesn’t have the time to spend hours (pure truth!) just searching for something to wear. Also lets not forget about how this bitter-sweet winter chills has a way of manipulating our mood. A mood that says, “I’m not in the mood to get dressed today.” -But because you’ve to dress up, something simple as a sweater dress comes in to the rescue.

Lets talk about dresses for a minute.

Don’t you find styling dresses less hustling? No need fighting with hangers trying to find a top that fits and whatnots. All you need is a shoe and a pair of accessories. -And out the door you go! This is why sweater dresses fit in perfectly.

Convincing enough? Share your thoughts please.

In 2017 I had an opportunity of collaborating with an online fashion and accessory store called Dresslily. As part of the process I was given a budget to spend on their store and immediately fell in love with this vibrant orange Cable Knit Jumper dress. The v-neck and white detail stood out to me. It also has a slight slit on the sides which is lovely. The sad thing is few days after ordering this, it sold out. With that said, the quality of this dress is impeccable! It has a weight to it which is good. I also got this unique  Bowknot Shirt. Generally I can’t fault the quality taking into account the prices of the things.

My jacket is an old purchase from Forever21. It’s not in stock anymore, but they do have some amazing outerwears (just in case you’re after one of course). This is not an ad please. -Just a friendly blogger shop suggestion. Ha!! The puffer collar of the jacket makes this so unique. With statement outerwears a trend this season, this jacket fits right in where it belongs. *Disclaimer: I received this as part of a wishlist collaboration, but all opinions are mine. Not paid!*

      Thank you Sonia and hope you can find one soon.

    That is such a fun dress, I can see why it sold out so quickly, what a great colour! 🙂 I agree too, dresses are such easy, instant outfits, it’s why I wear them so much! 🙂

    Hope you are having a good week so far, and a lovely start to 2018! We’ve been sick, so not the best start to the year, but it can only get better from here right? haha.
