This message is for dress-lovers: do not get upset that summer is over and that winter is not the time to put on dresses. You can continue wearing dresses in cold weather. A sweater dress is a warm alternative to silky summer dresses in which you will look equally hot.
A sweater dress is trendy this season. Apart from making you look smoking sexy, it is also highly useful, because you can wear it on various occasions. Depending on a situation, you may look in it casual, semi-smart, or formal. But first, you need to choose your sweater dress wisely so that it could show the beauty of your figure in the most flattering light.
When you are trying your sweater dress on, pay attention to the following:
- Your sweater dress should not be very figure-hugging, because you will not wear it on your lingerie only. In winter, you will need to wear tights and perhaps a top underneath it. So, you do not want the seams of your tights to show off through your figure-hugging dress, do you? If you have some fat layers on your belly, you would not want to demonstrate them to others, too. Therefore, choose such dress that would not fit you like a glove but that would not hang on you either.
- Sweater dress should not be see-through. Pay attention to how transparent it is, especially if you buy a dress made of elastic knitted fabrics.
- Do not buy a finely knitted dress. Thin fabric does not hold shape, highlights your body’s flaws, and is easily wrinkled. Choose a more thick fabric.
- Buy a dress of solid, monochrome colors rather than a colorful one. You want a sweater dress to become your basis garment which you can embellish for different occasions. Remember that a versatile dress is a plain dress. Depending on your color type, you can purchase a sweater-dress of black, gray, beige, brown, navy blue, or maroon colors.
Tights. If it is warm outside, you may walk without tights at all, provided you wear boots with your sweater dress. If you wear your dress with ankle boots, choose monochrome tights matching the color of your dress. Matching colors will visually make your legs look longer and slimmer. On some occasions, of course, you may put on tights with prints. But they will look well only with a monochrome sweater dress.
Shoes. Your dress should be worn with boots without heels. Most stylishly you will look in male boots and loafers. If you want to wear high-heeled shoes, make sure they have wedges. Stilettos with your sweater dress will make you look slightly cheap if not to say vulgar.
