The Sweater Dress Edit.

By: Jen Shoop

Historically, I’ve tended to avoid sweater dresses because I often found they added bulk to my frame, but this season has some spectacular, flattering pieces on offer. At the tippy top of my current shopping list is this Staud bustier dress. You can get a similar bustier look for less with this (under $100). I would style either of these with suede tall boots, but it would look equally chic with suede mules (look for less with these), clogs (look for less with these), or — for my more fashion-forward ladies — lug sole boots (look for less with these).

P.S. A close friend replied privately to this post with some thought-provoking feedback: “Have you considered that you were being respectful and considerate of your child by letting her play? That does conflict with respect to the person you’ll be late for. But sometimes it is a balance. What if you were late because you were respectful to yourself — you were upset by something and needed to collect yourself?”

P.P.S. Ignore the morbid tone of this query, but what would be your last meal?

P.P.P.S. Read anything good lately? If you’re not in the mood to read, check out this list of movies I’ll watch over and over again. (Comments are a gold mine!)

  1. I have the Ann Taylor in both colors (and the heathers teal it came in last year). Couldn’t recommend enough.
