1 Sweater Dress | 3 Ways


Like I said in yesterday's post, I have a few rules for myself when I go shopping. I sit on an item for a week or two to ensure I love it (& still remember it!). I also review my monthly budget using the Mint app. Lastly, I imagine a minimum of 3 new outfits using pieces already found in my closet. To show you what I mean, I've taken a simple black sweater dress aka my winter LBD, and styled it 3 ways for the cold weather.







Outfit #1
_________________________


I thought this outfit was perfect for a warmer winter day when you have a special dinner or date ;) It's cozy, but still girly with the full skater skirt. What I love about this concept is any girl can take this outfit and make it their own. Choose a different color sweater, a different skirt length, or different accessories to make it comfortable for herself.



Scarf | Burberry (gift)
Sweater Dress | Juicy Couture
Gold Skirt | Boutique (Shanghai)
Gold Bangle | Family heirloom
Silver Heels | BCBG









Outfit #2
_________________________


I'm not the type to reach for jeans on a casual day, but I can't help but love this look. It's casual; it's comfortable; it's easy to recreate, and completely practical. The puffer jacket adds warmth on colder days, and helps to hide any holiday weight gain you haven't lost at the gym yet! To make it a "me" outfit, I added a feminine touch via the small purse and tucked the jeans under the heel strap. It's my favorite combo, feminine but boyish....
...if that even makes sense.


Down Vest | New Balance
Sweater Dress | Juicy Couture
Ripped Jeans | Asos Petite
Gold Necklace | Thrifted
Black Purse | Boutique (Shanghai)
Heels | Schutz








Outfit #3

The last question I ask myself before every purchase is 'can I style this for a work outfit?' 75% of my wardrobe is based off of this question since 5 days of the week are spent in the office. I won't buy something I can't wear 70% of the year; that's ridiculous! So to make this sweater dress more work appropriate, I add opaque tights, knee high boots, a blazer, and my new favorite go-to bag in a beautiful neutral.

Sweater Dress | Juicy Couture
Tights | Uniqlo Heattech
Suede Boots | Steve Madden
Spike Necklace | BaubleBar
Purse | Coach


What d'ya think? Should I do more outfit remixes?

  1. I love all of the ways that you wore this dress!! I love wearing dresses as tops with skirts, but I never think to wear it as a top with jeans! Fun! I also like the layout of this blog post; it reads like a magazine spread!

  2. You did a great job styling that classy LBD. the 3rd monochromatic outfit is my favorite. Though wearing it as just a sweater was very creative and I love how you tucked in your skinny jeans into those stunning shoes in the second outfit. Well done!
