Is anyone else starting to get bored with a closet of solid-colored clothing? Yes, we adore solid shades, but we’re at the point of winter when a little variety might brighten our fashion spirits. And by “a little variety,” we don’t mean a wild, 1960s-style tie-dye pattern with peace signs or a vivaciously floral landscape. But a minimalist, sophisticated pattern might add some oomph to our winter wardrobes.
When shopping for a slightly patterned winter outfit, it’s hard to know where to look; sometimes we overcomplicate things, however, browsing dozens of websites and stores only to feel exhausted, demoralized and convinced we’ll exclusively be wearing solid hues for the next few frigid months. But a perfect grid-design sweater dress has been playing hide and seek with you at one of your favorite retail stores — it’s Walmart! You’re probably shopping at Walmart regardless, buying shampoo, toilet paper, groceries, home goods, the like. And it’s easy to skip over the clothing section, but it can be a total treasure trove!
This cozy outfit is the pinnacle of kicked-up winter style. It combines the trendiness and warmth of a turtleneck sweater with an elegant and classy geometric design. The material is a stretchy blend of polyester, nylon and viscose, so you’ll be extra comfortable while turning heads in the process. You’ll love the fit that’s designed to flatter your curves, hugging your arms and upper body and flaring out from the ribcage down to the knees. It’s tight and loose in all the right places!
Plus, this sweater dress is, first, a sweater. You can rock it in the middle of winter with leggings and a coat and expect to be toasty. The turtleneck blocks your neck from the wind, while the knee length protects your thighs, so no need to worry about those pesky cold gusts! We love the look (and practicality) of this dress with boots, a puffer jacket and a pom-pom hat.
Once it becomes transitional temps season, you can wear the sweater dress with a vest, layered jewelry, your favorite handbag and sneakers. Simplicity speaks volumes with this outfit! You’ll want to don it everywhere, from dinner with the girls, to running errands and walking the dog. You can even wear it with a blazer to the office for a polished and professional look — corporate trendsetter alert! The outfit comes in black, gray and khaki color options, so you just might have to grab one of each!
