hello, winter! it’s a balmy 48 degrees in Athens today. New York woke up to 40 degrees, but Minneapolis takes the cake with a brisk 36. when the going gets tough, the tough reach for winter essentials. for me, that’s a cashmere turtleneck dress from Everlane. today, we’re going to talk about how to wear a sweater dress multiple ways.
this dress gets lots of mileage on cold winter days. it’s practical enough to fly solo with over-the-knee boots. or layer this dress over leggings. granted, those of you living in the frozen tundra will have to choose your footwear according to the current weather forecast. lucky for me, Athens temps bounce around quite a bit. today its chilly for sure but a seventy-one-degree day is on the horizon. on those days i can get away sans socks. but take heart if that isn’t your cup of tea. nowadays there are so many cute socks or booties to keep your tootsies warm. the twenty-first century offers lots of options.
look 1: over the knee boots & tights
look 2: leather leggings & pumps
a night on the town never needs to be fancy schmancy. but when the temps are hovering in the 40s, i reach for my turtleneck cashmere dress. it keeps me warm and stylish which is a win/win. when i purchased this dress from Everlane, i knew it would easily double as a tunic. don’t you love how it looks with faux leather leggings similar here? suede pumps (similar here) elevate this outfit to date night stature. if you wanted a daytime look simply exchange the pumps for ankle boots. many northern gals ask what type of socks i would wear if the weather were colder? in that case, i would wear nude tights or anklet or knee-high socks.
look 3: monochromatic
with this look, you’d think i just returned from New York. i didn’t, not this week anyway, but how cute is this cashmere turtleneck dress styled monochromatically? i’ll i’ve really done here is slightly alter look 1 by swapping out the jacket. i’ve kept it simple here with black on black and an embroidered jacket. (similar pippa cardigan here.) by pairing the dress with over-the knee boots (similar boot and similar boot 2) as well as a pair of tights.
all right, gang, bundle up and stay warm!
