The Dress Chronicles Vol IX: Black Turtleneck Sweater Dress

January 15, 2018

What: Black Turtleneck Sweater Dress

Where: Casual Friday. Would also be great for grabbing a bite with friends or a casual date.

Wear with: I wore the dress with opaque tights and my favorite riding boots from Tory Burch. Since it is cold out, and I was sticking with the classics, I added this camel topcoat which was a Black Friday purchase. Finished the look off with a Burberry scarf and Gucci disco bag.

Why: I had been wanting to get a simple black turtleneck sweater dress to wear in the winter. It’s such a great staple! Most of the dresses I have tried were too fitted or short for my taste. I wanted it to be conservative enough that I could wear it to the office. When I ducked into the J.Crew Factory store in Freeport, Maine, I decided to give this dress a try, since it was 50% off. I am so glad I did! It has a flattering shape and is just the right length. I know I will wear this at least 10 times in the next 3 months.

This look is comfortable, but still polished enough for a professional office on casual Friday, or more relaxed offices any day of the week.

Adding a few classic pieces help pull it all together.

Riding boots and opaque tights = cold weather lifesaver.


Here’s to a great week ahead!
