Knits, knits, knits! If you recall my oversized knit and pleated skirt outfit, you will already know how the trend was all over the runaway for fall 2016. And whilst it is not anything overly ground-breaking for autumn and winter, sweater dresses are gaining attention this season thanks to their 70's vibes. Think warm, cosy and trendy; head-to-toe knit looks are something we can rock in a heartbeat! The idea is that the upper half is covered in chunky knits or sweater dresses and the bottom half shows some serious sleek feet style. Sexy heels, over the knee boots or even leather leggings work well. Check out how I styled mine.
The wonderful thing about Sweater Dresses is how easy they're to style, wear, accessorise, and to dress up or down. This is one trend you can wear for any occasion, to the office and on the weekends, thanks to the variety of styles, designs, knits, colours, prints and patterns they come in. It is hard to overdo it and given they look effortless, polished in a warm kinda way and slightly boho-chic, they're quickly going to turn into a winter favourite. Pair them bare legs and tights or leggings, put some boots on, a coat and you're done!
The key for this look is to accessorise, be with some cool boots or a glam handbag. When I saw this Ring Crossbody Bag*, it was love at first sight and I instantly knew it would look amazing with my Sweater Dress* and the outfit I had in mind for it. Ring Bags are cooler than ever, and it is impossible to miss or ignore this trend thanks to high end brands such as Gucci and Chloé. And whilst circular hardware when it comes to bags is not exactly innovative, these bags are now the look of choice for the Instagram fashion crowd and I am happy to jump on-board with this cheaper yet just as pretty version.

I can't say enough how pleased I am with this Dezzal order! The goodies arrived within 2 weeks and the quality of both items is just incredible. Sometimes when ordering from these retailers you wonder about the quality (I know I do) but with Dezzal I needn't have worried one bit. Yes, prices are a little steeper than usual, but you're paying for quality which is definitely worth it.
