How to Style a Sweater Dress

Happy Thanksgiving week! 

We are finally having winter weather around here...yesterday was freezing! This LOFT sweater dress was perfect for the cold weather (so was a Starbucks latte!). 

Today I'm styling a sweater dress two different ways. It's all about accessorizing
First of all, let's talk about this LOFT sweater dress...

Sweater dresses are a big trend this fall and winter and I've been searching for the perfect one. I finally found it when I saw my friend, Jo-Lynne style it! These dresses are SO POPULAR and are going fast! I went to LOFT to buy the deep ruby color but they only had my size in gray. Fortunately, I ended up loving it! 

This stylish and comfy dress is 40% off right now with code TURKEYDAY

For my first look, I accessorized with my White House Black Market leopard waist belt and leopard Coach bag. Wearing a waist belt over a dress is very flattering, especially on curvy figures. 

These flat Ralph Lauren Riding Boots were the perfect choice for this look. I love how chic and "put together" the outfit looks, but at the same time, comfy and practical! I would wear this out to lunch or dinner, on a shopping trip, or for Thanksgiving Day! These boots are beautiful and I especially like the gold detailing on the buckle. They also come in brown. 

Here's a look at the back of the dress...

Sweater Dress: LOFT // Tights: Kohl's // Belt: WHBM, similar // Boots: Ralph Lauren // Bag: Coach Outlet // Sunglasses: LOFT // Watch: Fossil 

For my second look, I accessorized the dress with a necklace, black booties, and my burgundy Coach bag. This dress looks great without a belt, too. Sweater dresses are so versatile and can be accessorized well with a necklace or scarf in place of a belt. 

Just like tall boots, short wedge (or heeled) booties pair well with sweater dresses. They dress up the outfit while providing a little height! I bought these booties last year at Marshalls, but I found an almost identical version on Amazon. I get a TON of wear out of these, so check them out if you are looking for a wedge booties.

As always, thanks for reading. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

1 Chronicles 16:34, "Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever."


  1. I haven't tried the sweater dress since I was pregnant with my first born (and the maternity sweater dress can be an awesome thing!). Can't wait to get my hands on a sweater dress this winter. Great ideas!

    1. Thank you! You should definitely try one again! :)
