Sweater Dress, 100th Thursday Moda Link Up and Giveaway


Dress: Forever 21 (old, similar here) | Shoes: Blondo | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (old, similar here) | Sunglasses: Dior (old, similar here) | Lips: Lust by MAC

One of the item that I love to wear during the colder seasons is a sweater dress.  It’s just so easy to throw on.  Not only is it comfy and soft but a sweater dress is like a cozy version of a pajama! They require minimal effort to wear and in my opinion, a great closet staple.  When it comes to styling sweater dresses, the possibilities are endless!  Think scarves, OTK boots, coats, tights, ankle boots, and/or flats.  A sweater dress looks great on its own with booties and a scarf just like how I styled it for this post, but you can easily change up this dress by adding a coat like this one, a neutral colored tights and an embellished ankle boots like this one for a night on the town ensemble. 

Forever 21 has amazing sales and I scored this sweater dress for less than $15 several seasons ago.  It’s warm, cozy and the perfect shade of taupe.  Since I tend to stick to neutral colors, I paired this dress with a plaid scarf and burgundy backpack to add some color to the mix. 

Sadly, the one I am wearing is old, but if you are looking for a chic way to stay cozy this season, I have rounded up 9 other cute sweater dresses you can shop below that is under $30.  Particularly, I love the color of this one, this off the shoulder one and the stripe pattern on this one.

What about you? Do you like sweater dresses?



And now onto the fun part! You can win yourself a $200 gift card to spend at Target.  You want to know how? Keep on reading….

    That’s a lovely knit dress! I really like your scarf with it too 🙂 I’d love to wear dresses like this more often, but it’s just not cold enough here in Brisbane to wear them, so I don’t have any left in my wardrobe.

    Hope that you are having a lovely weekend 🙂 We are having a relaxing one, much needed after a hectic week!
