We recently showcased our top five favorite sweater dresses and since then have been asked by many readers just how exactly to wear one. Other than with a solid pair of Spanx (or those ingenious Tight-End tights - or both), there are some simple ways to complement this cozy frock that will bring you easily from the office to after 5 cocktails.


what to wear with a sweater dress by btaylor

Since a sweater dress is classic, you can play around with shoes and accessories - but don't go overboard if you plan to wear to the office. A pair of two-tone Mary Janes and one strong colorful cuff will up the ante on a neutral colored dress. You can add a delicate silver necklace for some sparkle at the neckline. Before heading out for drinks, throw on a winter white mid-length jacket to brighten the look, and toss your evening essentials into a daring compact clutch.

I could use the cream jacket to pair it with my grey round-neck shorts.

These cream jackets can work great with black or white dresses.
