Happy Halloween readers – unfortunately, I don’t have a costume to share today and hopefully, you don’t think this outfit is intended to be one.
It is getting cold in this part of the world and one can be forgiven for wanting to wear trousers/jeans for the entire season. Staying warm is the rightful priority in this weather and the idea of wearing a dress can be rather off-putting on a cold day. This is where the genius of the sweater dress comes into play!
I find sweater dresses the easiest way to break the monopoly of the trousers in the winter and their versatility deserves a hearty applause. A warm sweater dress, with cozy leggings underneath and knee-high boots is a great winter look that never leaves me feeling cold and miserable. Sweater dresses provide a fabulous blank canvas to show off your accessories like a beautiful shawl or scarf.
This lambswool blend olive-green dress from Uniqlo ticks all the required boxes! I love the colour, the length and the material is warm and stretchy without clinging to your body. It is a beautiful neutral dress that can be accessorized with most things in my closet and at £29 it won’t break the bank either. I have paired it with stunning hand embroidered Pashmina shawl from Kashmir and my newly purchased pink coat. Flat tan boots and a small crossbody bag are all that’s required for a look that can be worn to the office, to meet friends or to wander around on the weekend.
I hope you enjoy this look and have a great day with lots of sweet indulgences. Check out my Instagram feed for my Halloween inspired outfit for the day. As always, thank you so much for reading my blog!
