I had to take a little break to get myself together since school started last Monday. Also, the weather was too cold and too cloudy to take pictures. So now the snow and cold weather as left for now I decided to finally take a picture of my sweater dress look.

I know that sometimes that sweater dresses are popular in winter. They are great because of the cool temperatures. Any knit is great in winter for keeping you warm and cozy. It is a!so a great piece to layer with other items. But let's face it itis not very flattering.

The Best Sweater Dress for You!

This dress is more flattering because it loosens in the right place around your waist.

Well, North Carolina finally has snow and it is probably more than what we are used to having. But in my area, we are doing fine because there are no power outages. But it will be a while before I venture outside and that is fine by me! This gives me an extra time to relax and enjoy myself. One thing I am doing to past the time is looking at the sales going on for this month. This month brings in a lot of sales. 

Why January has some many sales?

The new year not only brings resolutions and lists of goals but also sales. The reason for this is because stores are trying to get rid of items. Past holiday items have to be sold as well as items that have been there since fall. Also, they have to make room for new trends. Holidays such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr day also brings sales this month. Look for days leading up to that day and later on. But not everything is on sale. These are few things you can look for on sale this January.

Two Ways to Wear Dresses in Winter

Some people really don't like wearing pants. I am was of does people. I have always worn dresses since I was a child. But now as an adult, I still love it because it looks flattering on me. I also love the easy and comfortable appeal of a dress. You can simply put it on a go. But it can get difficult in winter. These are two of my favorite ways to wear dresses in the winter time.

Maxi Dress Under a Sweater 

What I am Wearing 

Cato's Fashion Peacoat Similar
Glitter Scarf Similar
St. Johns Bay's V neck Sweater Similar
Forever 21 Maxi Dress Similar
Timberland Boots Similar

One way you can wear dress is wearing a sweater over it. This is one of my favorite ways to wear my dresses but in particular maxi dresses. A maxi dress is often considered a summer staple but you can pull it off in fall and winter too! When reason, why it works in winter, is that you give you coverage which is perfect for winter. Pair it with your favorite boots. Make sure the boots are ankle or even knee-high boots.  Just make sure you hem it a little if you plan on wearing flat boots.
You can perhaps add some leggings which is what I do. 

With Black Tights 

What I am Wearing 

Calvin Klein Velvet Print Dress (Given to me by a friend) Here (only one size available )SimilarSimilar
No Nonsense Super Opaque Control Top Tights Here

This is one of the things I have been doing since I was a little kid. I always wore tights with my dresses in winter. But it can still be done in a classy way now they were are all adults! Midi or knee-length dresses are perfect with tights. This dress is also perfect because it is made of a thick material that really is appropriate for colder weather. But for extra winter layering, I am wearing No Nonsense Super Opaque Control Top Tights in XL. I like this brand because it has tights and leggings in my size, their inexpensive, and they are comfortable.They also do not snag as easily as other tight brands in its price range.  The reason for it because will not look bulky. If you hate black tights try another winter color that coordinates or matches your dress.  Also don't be afraid to try bright colors. No Nonsense has other colors besides black. Carmine and Shiraz would be great colors to wear in winter. Available Here
