Fit and Flare Sweater Dress

This dress is so cute you’d never guess I found it on the clearance rack– a perfect find for the last few weeks of winter. Styling a fit and flare sweater dress that is totally appropriate for the office, a lunch date, or happy hour with the co-workers. Keep reading to see how I gave this under $10 dress major style.

Since my last style post was layers + dress + OTK boots I wasn’t sure if I should share back to back. ¬†And even though there has been some snow flurries today, I am hopeful the days to packing away the winter boots is in my near future. Plus this look is so different- a bit more preppy so I am sharing anyway.

I found this A New Day Fit sweater dress on a Target clearance rack for about $8 in February. I had hopes to do a Valentine’s look or maybe even wear it on Valentine’s Day but that fell through. Pretty certain I never changed out of red VS Knockout tights that day.

I really like the cut of the fit and flare dress. The material is a good thickness for warmth but not add bulk. Seeing it on the model, I agree with the reviewers that it is more short than pictured. Which is okay with me because I wanted to wear OTK boots and this top with this dress. While in store I thought about layering it with this ancient dress shirt bodysuit from (back when Vicki’s sold clothes) and my black OTK LC Lauren Conrad boots. If I was still employed this outfit I would wear to the office. Now a-days it’s an outfit I would wear to meet my husband for lunch or meet him for a happy hour with his co-workers. It is a perfect balance of professional and trendy!

It’s July (my birthday month, woo!), and the year of the shoulder show game is STILL strong. What I’m loving the most about this trend is it’s flirting with all the different styles out there. Workout gear, casual, athleisure, formal, swimwear and even professional looks! I see so many adorable cold shoulder and off the shoulder tops that I would love to purchase but my reality is 5 out of 7 days a week my outfits adhere to my company’s dress code policy making some options not office friendly. I was really excited when I came across a few off […]
