Who else owns a sweater dress and only wears it the same way over and over again? I decided to challenge myself with this piece because I always do that.
If you have read my previous blog posts, you’ve noticed I started sharing an ‘outfit formula’ to help you create these looks with similar pieces you already own. My intention with these posts is to inspire you to dress better, so you can feel better about yourself. I know it sounds shallow, but when you feel confident, nothing can stop you!
I also want you to maximize what you have in your closet and think about it twice when you need to go shopping. Don’t just buy stuff for the sake of having stuff. Shop smart! Think about it twice. It’s your hard earned money you are spending.
I cut down on shopping a couple of years ago because we started saving money for a 2-year trip around the world. I was spending $400-$500 a month buying random stuff here and there that I would only wear once and forget about it later. My closets were packed with stuff I didn’t even know about and I somehow always ended up wearing the same things over and over again…. I’ve saved so much money by shopping smarter! Money I can spend on things that actually matter to me; like traveling ;).
I know it’s my job to talk about outfits and brands, and share promo codes, but I don’t expect that every time I post something you will go out and buy it. That’s why I always say, IF YOU NEED to shop for something here’s a promo code or here’s this website I think has great stuff. I always try to make my posts useful, that’s why I provide different ways to style basic pieces.
Anyways, back to the point LOL. Here you have 4 looks, for 4 different occasions that I created with the same sweater dress. If you have similar pieces, I hope you can recreate some of these looks 🙂
Look 1: For the office
Sweater dress + Long Cardigan + Spanxs (or tights) + Booties
Look 2: For date night
Sweater dress + Spanxs (or any leggings) + Strappy sandals
Look 3: For the weekend
Sweater dress + White sneakers + Denim Jacket
Look 4: For brunch
Sweater dress + Moto Jacket + Spanxs (or tights) + Booties + Hat
As you can see there’s so much more you can do with your sweater dresses!! I only have this one right now. I used to have a couple more but for some reason I got rid of them (it was a stupid move!), but I think if you choose a neutral color you only need to have one. Unless is a piece you wear a lot, then maybe you’ll need a couple back ups 😉
Any favorite looks? Let me know in the comments below!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have an amazing day ahead!!
