3 Reasons You Need A Sweater Dress


Happy New Year! I want to thank you for all the love and support that you have shown me over the years, and I hope this is your best year yet!  Today I am discussing sweater dresses (love them) and the reasons you need one.  I am transitioning into a new phase of my life and my goal is to live a more “minimalistic” lifestyle.  I want to simplify my life in every way (which includes finances and my wardrobe).  I will talk more about this evolution in another post soon, but I’m not wasting any time setting my wheels in motion.

My style has always been very classic with a little edge, but this year I am downsizing my personal closet and I am determined to complete the capsule wardrobe that I started working on last year.  I am focused on minimalist fashion, and I am excited about documenting my process.  The task of fine-tuning my entire wardrobe to “a less is more” approach is definitely going to be a challenge, but I’m ready to do something different.

Sweater dresses are a wardrobe staple in my closet.  It is one of the pieces that you love adding to your closet during the winter season because it is such a cozy and simple item.    

 Here are three reasons you need a sweater dress today:

  • Versatility – The styling options are endless and you can wear sweater dresses in professional and casual environments (depending on the style).
  • Figure Flattering – There are various styles of sweater dresses to choose from that will flatter every body type, including straight and a-line silhouettes. 
  • Comfort – This is one of the most comfortable yet chic pieces that you can add to your wardrobe.  Find one that is a soft-knit and you will wear it all of the time.
