I love sweatshirts. Probably a little too much, but can you blame me? They’re comfortable, versatile, and practical. The only thing that can make them better is by making them an all in one outfit. Now I can wear a sweatshirt – sans pants?! You had me at hello Mr. Shirt. Because I’m a kind soul I want to share with you how to flawlessly style your sweatshirt dresses for maximum level chic.
Paired with sneakers: Give that sweatshirt dress the sporty edge it longs for. In addition to loving a great sweatshirt I also have an affinity for dope kicks. I mean is Nike ID not the best thing to ever happen? Uh, yes. For this look I played up the pink in my shoes to match the lovely shade of mauve in my dress. The best part that even though you’re keeping it casual, the girlish hues bring a femininity to the look that will bring the boys to the yard. Check out this post for more details on the look above.
Throw on your boots: You can jazz up your sweatshirt dress with a pair of over the knees like one my favorite bloggers, Kayla, behind Not Your Standard. The key here is making sure your proportions are right. Your dress needs to be shirt enough to accommodate those boots otherwise you risk losing the effect. With just a hint of thigh showing you’re covered up but still sexy. If the chill has arrived where you are don’t hesitate to add a pair of tights underneath for even more umph.
Double down on the dress: This is a look that may not be for everyone but adding extra layers to your dress may not be a bad idea either. Giving more fluidity to a piece that can be stiff will make it more whimsical. And who doesn’t love a little whimsy from time to time. This is your chance to break out that summer dress you love or add some tulle to an otherwise casual look.
