We have been getting a ton of reader emails asking us about wearing the latest trend for Fall: Sweater dresses. Though the dresses can be clingy and may appear too risque for work for some employers, we do feel these dresses can still be worn tastefully and professionally at the office. However here are some tips to look for depending on your size or body shape:
Avoid a baggy cut and loose or open sweater knit weaves. They tend to overwhelm a petite frame. Show off that waist of yours with a belt!
In this case, downplay your cleavage since knit dresses already show off your figure. Pick neutral colors and simple necklines.
In this case, you can carry off all details with ruffles, ruching, bows, embellishment, and patterns.
Chunkier knits work best for this frame. They add volume to a tall frame. The longer and leaner the silhouette the better.
Stay tuned for more Fitting Room Series! Happy Friday!
