As the weather cools, you've likely already added cozy sweaters and comfy fall dresses to your packing list. And while a pullover is always a fit atop your favorite denim and dresses will generally require a jacket of some sort; why not try the two together?
Layering dresses with knitwear, though, can sometimes read a little sloppy. The key to mastering this pairing is narrowing in on what you’re trying to achieve that day (or on that trip) and then, paying attention to proportions.
Planning to be out all day? You’ll want to be comfortable and not too constricted — loose-fitting dresses and oversized cardigans and pullovers with long lines are your best bet. Add a waist belt over top of both if you're more comfortable with that shape. Have an important meeting? Try a more put-together look like a fitted turtleneck under a no-frills, tailored dress. Attending a holiday party? Embellished knitwear and monochrome silhouettes are the perfect solutions to dressing up your dress and sweater combo.
