Here at Wardrobe ICONS we favour pieces that will live in your closets forever, those wardrobe staples that you will pull out season after season and with our help reinvent according to the latest trends. A simple sweater dress is high on our list of winter essentials and, as well as looking great on virtually any body shape (that’s a promise), it is a versatile and multitasking wardrobe essential. So I say, invest in one now!
“I love the versatility of a sweater dress: you can wear it with thick tights and knee high boots in the day and then switch to no tights and a fabulous statement shoe at night – and for tights haters like me, somehow knitted dresses always make a winter bare leg look appropriate.”
I wore this dress for our “Not just for Party” shoot a couple of weeks ago because in my book a quality sweater dress is a unusual yet perfect casual party dress. For a friday night dinner at friends house or an intimate date night, I can’t think of anything better than a cosy knitted dress paired with some statement shoes. Simply add an embellished clutch and a coat of red lipstick.
