Now that October is in full swing, I am happy to unpack my favorite sweaters from last year and start incorporating the new ones I bought over the summer (which is the best time to get them at a bargain!) into my wardrobe. Today I am wearing one of my new favorites: a large, grey cable knit sweater dress from J.Crew.
Since this October day was on the warmer side (and I shaved my legs last night) I skipped pants and only wore black ankle boots with the sweater dress. I look forward to wearing this sweater dress with leggings or tights and with a leather jacket once the weather drops a few more degrees—and maybe with a scarf and thick socks in the dead of January.
Like the ladies who wear them, sweater dresses come in many shapes and sizes. The majority of sweater dresses available are either very form fitting and hit below the knee or are extra oversized and stop just below the booty. Since I do not have legs for days, I prefer the oversized, short silhouette with a low heel since it helps me look taller than 5’3”.
