How to Style a Sweatshirt Dress: Now, Later & Way Later

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I recently picked up this ridiculously soft and comfy sweatshirt dress from Express.  I’ve long been a fan of taking something super casual and comfortable and dressing it up a bit in different ways . . . and this dress is perfect for that.  Hey, if I can feel like I’m wearing loungewear outside of the house, I consider it a victory.  (See fancy sweatshirts and chic sweatpants here).  My favorite thing about this dress (aside from comfort) is that it comes in both regular and petite sizes . . . so 5’4″ and under, they’ve got you covered.  I’ll be wearing this year-round . . . here’s how.

Now

Wearing:

Express Lace-Up Sweatshirt Dress: Available in regular and petite sizes, I’m wearing a petite small (for those of us 5’4″ and under . . . I’m 5’4″ for reference).

Sneakers (similar), and I’m loving these light pink hi-tops too . . . great color for fall!

BLANKNYC Suede Moto Jacket: My new favorite, this is soooo soft and comfy and I’m loving the red and spice color for fall. (Similar style and more sizes here).

Boots: I bought these last year, but am drooling over these ridiculously beautiful Kenneth Cole boots.

Bag: THE bag for the Mom Edit team . . . we alllll love our Rebecca Minkoff backpacks because they’re super comfortable and hold everything you need . . . including diapers/wipes and a change of clothes for your little. (And this gorgeous color is ON SALE and perfect for fall!)

Lysee Faux Leather Leggings: THESE are them . . . the perfect faux leather leggings.  Comfortable, stretchy, hi-rise and lined for warmth and smoothing over bumps.  Absolutely worth every penny! (I tried both the small and medium and medium was perfect . . . I’m usually a 28/6 in pants).

Nine West Boots: I love these boots.  They don’t sag down and are comfy with a 2″ heel for just a little height. (I mean, that’s basically a flat boot, right??)

Faux Fur Coat: Similar here and here

Earrings: I’m a sucker for hoops.  Always.  These are a fun twist on the traditional hoop earring.

  1. Love!! I already ordered the dress. Are you wearing the jacket in the Red My Mind color? What size? Wondering how much i need to size up to fit over the dress.

  2. I ordered this dress immediately! Received it today! It’s so soft! I ordered Petite small after reading reviews. I’m 5’1” and weigh about 125. I normally don’t order on spot but my body type is similar and thought I’d take a chance! I love it!
