Ways to Style A Light Sweater Dress for Those Warmer Climates-

 

I’m sharing a light sweater dress today from Mango for those warmer climates. And to wish you Happy Halloween!

Sweater Dress for a Warmer Climate

Do you love sweater dresses but are afraid you will be too hot in them. Living in NC, I have one or two that are a bit thicker, but prefer this type of sweater dress to layer and also keep cool in.

This rich olive caught my eye and I like the longer length as well. I just returned a dress from Mango Outlet, as it was way to short and would have me requiring sitting a certain way. Well, that’s not happening. So off it went, and I found this beauty. Keep in mind that I am 5 foot 9, so that will give you an idea of where it will land on you.

This is a very light ribbed material – think of a light sweater or even the weight of a button-down blouse.

Olive is one of those neutral colors, and I think my favorite- certainly in the top five for Fall.

This dress comes in numeric sizing and I ordered my regular size 4, so it fits true to size.

I kept it simple here with black accessories- my Bruno Magli bag, and my Dolce Vita black leather booties.

Since it is light, you could certainly add more layers if it was chillier out.

  • Style it with an oversized blazer. The lean line of the sweater dress will compliment am oversized style.
  • Add a slouchy sillouette- another knit over top of the dress.
  • Moto jackets always look pretty cool and modern. You could style it with almost any color moto. Black would be the go-to.
  • Make it sporty. Wear a stylish baseball cap with the dress and some stream-lined retro sneakers.
  • A jean jacket will always be a good go to with a lighter weight sweater dress. You could also style with some fun sneakers in leopard or another print.
  • Keep it simple with accessories. Gold fine jewelry will always be classic.

If you live in a warm climate, do you wear sweater dresses? Do you search for the lightweight ones such as this? How might you style it?

I will post this outfit also on Like to Know it. My shop is @elegantlydressedandstylish.

I couldn’t resist taking pictures in front of our Maple tree. I love the leaves changing, spilling some onto the ground below. We had my brother and nephew over on the weekend, My nephew is almost 5 and is a barrel of laughs. I do love it when I get to see him. They went home yesterday and I learned that he was going to be a T-Rex, and his sister a pink dinosaur. My brother and his wife would be park rangers.

Ode to Halloween

We get a fair number of kids in our neighborhood, and last year we just sat outside and gave candy. Time for a firepit!

This year, since my health is not as good, I won’t be able to sit for long periods, but will take breaks and then hubby will hand out candy.

If you missed it, here are my little angels as Ewoks.

    I love how this sweater dress can be so versatile Jess. It’s one of those that would even work to layer a skirt over it.
