Nude Sweaterdress

This is the kind of piece I’d snap up at any time of the year, regardless of what I was out shopping for, because I would just know that having it would come in really handy one day. It could be layered with other pieces or worn alone. It’s seasonless, plus it would look just as good at night as during the day. The boat neck is almost universally flattering, since it balances any width at the hips, and the three-quarter-length sleeves mean it’s particularly good between seasons and in contexts that require conservative clothes. The knit would play up curves and pockets add a little interest and detailing. It’s a little hard to tell from the photo just where the length would hit on the leg, and though I’m guessing that some might wish it were a couple of inches longer, the shortness makes it easy to style casually or if you want to play up its sex appeal.
