’Tis the Season for chic sweater dresses and I found this ribbed maxi sweater dress and duster cardigan during a recent online shopping excursion at Express. The sweater dress which is available in several colorways can be worn alone or with your favorite cardigan or coat throughout the holiday season. While I went with a tone-on-tone with the wine colorway, but you can bring other patterns and colors into this look simply by adding your favorite silk scarf at the neck for another chic addition, and of course the perfect pair of heels.
Since I was wearing the dress for the first time to a Halloween afternoon tea at one of our favorite local hotels, the Ballantyne, I went with simple pearl accessories including my favorite Dainty Pearl Bow Earrings from Sea to Skye which are constantly selling out (I also love these Duchess Earrings) and a gold and pearl drop necklace that I found at LOFT several seasons ago.
When it comes to shoes for this dress, it really depends on the occasion. Booties, pumps, or strappy sandals all complement this look, and I went back and forth between pairing it with the gold nappa or black suede version of Sarah Flint’s Perfect Block Sandal before finally settling on the black suede. I have both sandals in the 30mm heel height which is the ideal height for me when I’m going to be walking around a bit, and I also have the gold nappa in 90mm for events where I want a little more height.
