Dramatically turn your sweater dress from drab to fab with these tips
One of the most underrated clothing items is the sweater dress.
Sweater dresses can be extremely stylish if paired with the right items while guaranteeing you warmth. Plus, sweater dresses come in all designs from long to short, long sleeved to sleeveless and you can still get some that incorporate trendy aspects such as cold shoulders, puffy sleeves or even a turtle neck.
The weather in Nairobi has been a little bit cold lately. A sweater dress comes in handy for a night out or even a weekend social event. Kenyan Fashion Blogger, Diana Machira, of Denim and Cateye blog schools us on how to style a sweater dress and we are so here for it.
The beautiful and elegant Blogger styles her grey cold shoulder sweater dress in three unexpected ways:
1. She wears her dress with a denim shirt and adds a pop of color to the look with magenta booties.
We would wear this look for a polite happy hour with the girls on a Friday evening or night.
2. In the second look, she adds an unexpected twist by layering the dress with a bustier cropped top and throws over a mustard coat and completes the look with matching vans.
What we love about this look is that it has a little bit of everything, it's trendy, edgy, while incorporating prints and color. Plus, it's unique, boasting of a sense of identity.
3. In the third look, she wears the sweater dress as a top, by wearing a skirt over it.
Diana goes for a pastel A-line midi skirt with mesh details and completes the look with electric blue sandal heels and this look would be perfect for an upscale event such as a cocktail party or date night with the boo.
