For those day you’re looking to switch up your winter wardrobe, we’re taking another page from our angel, Alessandra’s supermodel off-duty style: the sweater dress. Ale was spotted out shopping in this effortlessly chic outfit that’s inspired us to give it a whirl. And hey, with this California “winter”, the sweater dress offers just the right amount of coverage since it can be dressed up or down. See below for a few inspirations.

Thigh-highs or Over The Knee Boots: The simplest way to dress up a sweater dress is by pairing it with knee high boots. It gives off a sophisticated comfy-chic vibe and ensures you won’t freeze from the waist down.
Belt It: Sweater dresses run two ways, either oversized or extremely fitted. A thin belt can add shape to a loosely fitted sweater dress when cinched at the waist (or your even overcoat!) and both wide and thin belts can be worn to help create a balance for fitted dresses.
Layered: Another quick and easy solution is to layer a sweater dress with something structured. We love how Ale pairs this ensemble with a fitted short fur vest over a pair of tights that still allows for knee-high boots.
