Hi, everyone! Welcome to Week 3 of my November Triple Take! Today, you’ll be getting all three looks in one post. Our “victim” is the above sweater dress from Avenue. When you hear “sweater dress,” it often brings to mind heavy fabric and something reserved for only the coldest of days; however, this dress is about as thick as a t-shirt, and I selected it because it’s versatile enough to be worn alone or as a layering piece. So, let’s check out the first outfit, shall we?
Outfit #1: Bundled Up
Outfit #1 is casual and meant for a chilly day. I’ve had the above vest with faux fur collar for about five years now, and I often wear it as opposed to a full jacket because it feels less constricting. Combined with knit leggings and boots, this outfit is perfect for an ordinary day of running errands or even something more adventurous and outdoorsy like going on a hike.
This outfit is more business casual than the first, and the pops of leopard makes it a little wild. I see the spacedye pattern in the dress as more of a texture than a print, so I treated it like a solid color – not that there’s anything wrong with mixing prints! There’s a bit of a controversy at the moment in the body-positive, plus size fashion world about emphasizing a high waist, as I do with this obi belt. The former rule of thumb was to show off the smallest part of your silhouette in order to “dress for your shape.” I’m of the belief people should cinch their waists wherever they choose…or even not at all! I usually opt for the high-waisted look because I like to give even my most modern dresses a retro ’50s or ’60s-style shape, and it has nothing to do with flattery.
With holiday parties in the very near future, it’s easy to see that one thing missing from many evening ensembles is…warmth! While it’s simple to throw on a big ol’ coat over your LBD, this layered look will also have you covered if there’s a chill in the air. The full skirt, sparkly accessories, and floral patterned tights are dressy enough for even the fanciest of get-togethers, so you won’t be under-dressed for the occasion or the weather.
There you have it: three great looks from one adaptable dress! Thank you for checking them out, and I hope you’re inspired to use what’s in your closet in brand new ways. Whether you’re feeling adventurous, fun, or fancy, get out there and enjoy your day!Want to check out the first two weeks’ Triple Takes?
