THE SWEATER DRESS Night & Day

Love me a versatile, wearable dress with a style punch.

AllSaints is one of those go-to brands that always appears to be more expensive than it actually is. This lightweight sweater dress in particular stole my heart, and instantly sent my mind racing with ideas on how to change it up with just a few accessories for a date night look or a daytime look to exude effortless confidence and sophistication.

Since the dress is so simple, I opted for beach waves and a python clutch to add an extra dose of texture. And although I paired it with weather-appropriate wedge booties, I could definitely see this with a sexy sandal too!

With a standout detail like the one-sided shoulder cut, I kept the jewelry to a minimum, but each piece has a level of intricacy that breaks up the solid of the backdrop. And again, I added texture with a feathered hat and a fringed bag.

The dress is a perfect base piece to have a little fun with accessorizing, and to never look like you’re trying too hard. I’m smitten!

*The ring is one of my favorite travel mementos ever, a purchase from Maryam Montague’s tribal chic boutique in Marrakech. I wear it ALL THE TIME.
