How to Wear a Sweater Dress + Makeup

Dress / Scarf / Shoes 

This morning we had some more snow, and the cold weather has been staying around. Because of that I decided it might be fun to do a cozy comfy outfit that is perfect for the cold weather. I decided on a sweater dress and when I realized that I haven’t done any outfits with one on the blog I figured it’d make the perfect outfit guide. I made this outfit to be a relaxed and casual sweater dress look that’s perfect for lounging at home or school days. 

  • Dress – While I see some form fitting sweater dresses I instead wanted to go with a thicker looser one, that’s still flattering. The grey color is gorgeous and I love the chunky knit. 
  • Scarf – While a lot of these dresses are more of turtleneck sweaters I wanted to keep it casual so I instead went with a scarf. I love this infinity circle scarf, that makes the look more sophisticated without being stuffy.  
  • Shoes – I’ve done a guide on how to wear chunky boots and these are the bit more feminine version of that. I love the wedge heel that makes them comfortable and the lace up front is very cute. 
Nail Polish / Eyeliner / Lipstick / Earrings 
Although this knit sweater dress is pretty simple I wanted to add in a little bit of makeup to give it a more finished look. This is especially important for that casual look where you’re wanting to impress someone (ladies you know what I mean) and it gives off a cute effortless look. I went with the pop of color to make the outfit more than just grey and black. 
  • Nail Polish – This blue color was so gorgeous that I couldn’t pass it up. With essie you know that it’s going to be opaque and long wearing. Plus it looks like it has a bit of shine which is great. 
  • Eyeliner – As you might already know I love felt tip eyeliner. There seems to be no better way of application than with a felt tip. This jet black color is perfect for pairing with a grey sweater dress. 
  • Lipstick – It might seem a bit jarring to have a light blue, aqua,  paired with a red lipstick but they’re far enough from each other that it works well. Plus the outfit can use both colors since it’s mostly black and grey. 
  • Earrings – I don’t often add in jewelry, to outfits but I couldn’t pass up these earrings. I love the blue stone in the middle and the diamond like material on the outside.
