We love sweaters. We love dresses (heck, we even love zippers, they’re fun—and easier than buttons). So why aren’t more women bowing down to the mystical, sartorial power that is the sweater dress? They’re warm, cozy, and chic without trying too hard (sweater dresses are essentially the hot chocolate of the fashion world, quote us on it). And with just a few simple accessories, and tights thick enough to shield your legs from the unforgiving autumn winds, the sweater dress will be your new morning go-to when putting on pants is. Not. An. Option.
Opening Ceremony’s Zip- Detailed Ribbed Wool Sweater Dress (available here) features a turtleneck, light-gray hue, and asymmetric zipper and hemline.
Try the sweater out on its own, with black tights, this envelope clutch care of cool-girl-style-maker Alexander Wang, and these two-tone Sigerson Morrison booties for a fashion-week-worthy ensemble in three minutes flat.
Or, if you’re feeling daring, wear it the Opening Ceremony way and fully unzip the sweater, pairing it with gray wool trousers, like these Anne Klein ones.
Just layer a black leather jacket (or maroon, like this butter-smooth biker jacket from Topshop) and you have a super snug, super chic look that is better than the basic tee and jeans. So what are you waiting for? Get your hands on a sweater dress now, before everyone else catches up.
