Sweater Dresses

Although my school is full of fashion statements (it seems as if everyday is a competition for amazing UNIQUE outfits), one of the best trends that everyone has been experimenting is sweater dresses. Not only are they oh-so soft and comfy, but they are incredibly chic and french-like.

This Vince sweater dress, although expensive, is soo worth it.



Although this next dress isn't quite a sweater, I couldn't resist. I definitely would add a big belt to it - probably something suede and maybe red or purple?


Also, I'm not that much of a fan of "booties". Why not go with some wedge boots? I have a gorgeous pair of Michael Kors black suede lace wedges that would go perfectly with this dress!


Ever since Diane von Furstenberg (is that how you spell it?), and Donna Karan came out with simple, beautiful wrap dresses, they've been all over the market. Fortunately for us, they're now affordable! I just love this color too...



Who can't resist a wearing a dress without BALLET FLATS (the ultimate accessory!!)?
London Sole continues to make timeless, adorable pairs:



J. Crew also makes SUCH cute ballet flats. I lovee the brown suede ones (so chic!), but they're a little conservative...some fun crazy pairs are the bronze (so in) ballet lace-up flats! so cute!

And just remember girls, avoid sweaters that just go to your waist (and leggings), no one wants to see your butt!
Stay Chic,

i love the sweater, i've been looking for one and it need something incredibly warm (i live in MN, the state where it can get to -48 degrees windchill, in febuary). i also love the dress, nice color and very flattering. and yes jcrew has awesome flats, i love the new ones w/ the strap, but are they comfy?
