Thank goodness spring is here even though the weather does not feel like it yet. The other day I was so cold I was shivering when I walked out the door, but I digress. When the weather is cool but not freezing, sweater dresses are your best friend. They are super cozy, comfortable and can be styled up or down. I took this simple black sweater dress from drab to fab by using a few accessories.
How to wear a black sweater dress : 3 tips
- Wear a belt – A belt is by far the best way to transform a sweater dress from simple to chic. Belts are a great way to accentuate your shape as they emphasize there narrowest part of your figure. Since sweater dresses are usually loose fitting a belt is the key.
- Gold accessories – Black goes with most styles of accessories but if you want to look chic and elegant I find gold against black to be a great choice. Wear your gold watch with a couple gold bracelets, earrings and some fab sunglasses.
- Wear a brown or earth tone pashmina – to go with the black and gold theme brown is the best color pashmina to go with this look. I prefer a pashmina to a wool scarf for this outfit as wool on wool can be a bit too much. The different textures add another nice element to the look.
