It was a 3 day weekend and it was amazing for me. I had an event on Saturday and watched Black Panther finally on Sunday and my Monday was just chilled. Have you watched Black Panther? I loved it and loved the representation of different African cultures. I didn’t dress up though, I just wore an all black dress with black over the knee boots. I highly recommend watching this movie if you haven’t seen it.
Today on the blog, I will share how to style a cable knit sweater dress. I recently purchased this sweater for just $20, what a great steal and wanted to go for a feminine and chic look. I know sweater dresses can be casual but there are different ways to elevate the look by adding different elements. Here are the different ways:
- Adding Layers – The great thing about a cable knit sweater dress is that you can always layer with a nice shirt or a turtleneck depending on your personal style. A sweater can be tied around the waist for an edgier look.
- Pairing with Tights/Leggings – This is the simplest way to style your sweater dress by pairing with tights/leggings and a pair of boots. The boots can be over the knee boots (feminine look) or even combat boots (edgy look).
- Accessories – You can always accessorize to add some fun to your look. This is where statement pieces come to play. You either can wear statement earrings, necklace or a slim belt to accentuate your figure.
- Pairing with a long jacket/trench coat: You can also pair your sweater dress with a wool jacket or a trench coat depending on you style.
Hopefully my few tips helped and I would love to see how you styled your sweater dress. You can definitely tag me on Instagram if any of the tips worked for you. I do hope you enjoyed the long weekend and now let’s get ready for the 4 day week.
