I’ve never owned a sweater dress before. It feels like an oxymoron to me…and I don’t like wearing tights under knitwear. So why did I buy this?
Well, I feel I needed to get out of my everyday jeans and jumper routine. Plus, dare I say, we’re having a few milder days out there where tights are no longer required (it is in fact sunny as I type this). And they certainly are easy to wear – just throw a coat over and you’re done – I have also tested this look with Stan Smiths and it works equally well.
These shoes are from Next last year, and they have been so useful. A great alternative to an trainer if you need to be smart but still want a casual, sporty look. And loafers are still in – try this season’s backless styles for a modern update.
