how to style a beret

I feel like this outfit is not complete without a baguette or croissant or something to help me fulfill my Parisian chic dreams. But we aren’t here to talk about my love of carbs or all things French-cool-girl. Today I’m talking about a way to maximize some of last year’s sweaters in your closet!

Fun fact: this isn’t really a dress.  It’s a long turtleneck sweater that I’ve belted for a makeshift dress.  I’m 5’7″ (commonly asked so it’s actually in my FAQ!), so I don’t have many sweaters I can do this with. However if you’re on the more petite side, you’re in big luck, sister!

I think the best way to balance out something short in the colder fall/winter months is with some tall boots and/or stockings. Or you could wear leggings and booties – your call.

Below are some additional picks for sweaters that I think would be great worn as dresses (and some actually are sweater dresses).

Thanks so much for reading, and let me know if you would try this trend! XO –

10 thoughts on “Wearing A Sweater… As a Dress

  1. Love it! Wearing just sweaters with jeans or leggings can get kind of repetitive after awhile so this is a great tip to change it up. Nothing beats a sweater paired with your favorite boots
