Save Steal Splurge: The Sweater Dress

When fall layering gets a little out of hand — how many times can you wear a silky tank, a flannel shirt, a scarf, a coat and and gloves together? — the easiest way to pare down without losing the essence of the season is with a sweater dress. It’s an all-in-one piece that’s great for work and play a like. Accessorize it with leggings and boots for the daytime and then add a little more drama with leather tights, sky-high heels and your biggest earrings for after-dark fun. Plus, the layering possibilities really are endless. Make like one of our favorite fashion designers, Marissa Webb, and layer a longer skirt under the sweater dress for a real fashion statement or add your favorite black boots and moto jacket for a look that’s completely downtown cool.
