$40 Cowlneck Sweater Dress

Hello and welcome back to 25 Days of Winter Fashion! I like to have a sweater dress or two in my winter closet, and I’m a sucker for a cowlneck top, so when I can combine the two, it’s a double win! This cowlneck sweater dress is super soft and cozy, the color is gorgeous and universally flattering, and best of all it’s only $40!!!

Sometimes sweater dresses can be clingy, but this one is not. It does have a bit of an A-line shape to it, which isn’t usually my first choice, but I don’t mind it for a change. I also like the flare sleeves because they give it a modern edge but aren’t wide enough to get in the way of daily tasks.

LOFT Cowlneck Flare Sweater Dress

The best thing about dresses is, they’re one and done. I paired this teal sweater dress with black leather over the knee boots, added a few accessories, grabbed a clutch, and I was out the door!

For size reference, I’m wearing a small in this dress so it’s pretty true to size for LOFT dresses. It did come in petite, but those sizes sold out, so I expect the regular sizes to go next. I wouldn’t wait around if you really want one. Also, I think the shipping at LOFT is pretty steep, but you can always order online and choose the Store Pickup option if you have a LOFT store near you. That avoids any shipping charges, but you can make sure to get the size you need, plus you get your order sooner that way.

By the way, I did iron the sleeves — guess I missed a spot. Yikes!

I don’t usually wear more than one leopard pattern in an outfit, but I thought this watch was cute with the leopard clutch since they’re both small pieces.

In case you missed it, I’m running a virtual Stella & Dot Trunk Show through 12/12, and this Pyramid Watch with the leopard band is one of the Trunk Show Exclusives. You can get it for 50% off with a qualifying $50 Stella & Dot purchase if you shop through my Trunk Show link.

Unfortunately the pearl cuff I’m wearing and the drop earrings are sold out. These earrings are similar but a little bigger and blingier.

On my other arm, I wore a Gorjana cuff that was part of the #Nsale and since sold out. This cuff is similar, just without the stones.

Clare V. Foldover Leopard Clutch

The leopard clutch adds a nice point of interest, although it’s not practical for daily wear. If I were going to work or church, I’d probably carry a black tote or shoulder bag with this outfit, but I’d definitely rock the leopard clutch if I were going out to dinner or to a holiday party.

I didn’t wear tights with this outfit for these pictures, but when it’s colder I will. I like it both ways. Black tights would create a more streamlined look.

STYLE TIP >> When wearing over-the-knee boots with a short dress, ideally there will be some leg showing (or tights, if you’re wearing them) between the top of the boots and the hem of the dress.

My over the knee boots are from last year, but these are this year’s version and I like how they have the split shaft in the back. It makes them more comfortable to walk in, although mine are okay now that I’ve broken them in.

Franco Sarto Over-the-Knee Boots

I always wear this fitted slip under my dresses. While this dress isn’t particularly clingy, I still like to have another layer between me and the dress.

This is an outfit I’ll wear to church this winter, and I think it would make a nice work wear look for certain professions. I would also wear this to a holiday party if it was the right venue.
