Come Together + Arrive in Style with this Banana Republic

Since Christmas is only 6 days away (can you believe it, where has December gone?!) I’m sure you’re busy with holiday parties, family get-togethers and hosting your own parties. But the question always remains, “What am I going to wear?” I never really have many parties to go to this time of year where I can get dressed up, but at the same time, I want to stay warm. So a great piece that will keep me warm, like this gray sweater dress, is perfect for any party.

There are three things that I like most about this gray sweater dress, one is the length. Being a tall girl with a long torso, I struggle to find dresses that are appropriately long enough for me. This one hits me just above the knee showing off a little skin and I can wear boots, like these, or a fun little bootie would be an option too. No awkward and uncomfortable tugging at this dress, don’t you hate that!?

The second thing I love about this dress is the fun flare sleeves. Statement sleeves are really having a moment this season and I’m loving all of the different styles of them. This flare detail really elevates this dress from a boring gray sweater dress to one with more style and flair!

The third thing I love about this great sweater dress is that it’s a thicker, softer knit and will really keep you warm. It’s not a super thick knit, but it’s a lot thicker than some sweater dresses I’ve seen. Does that make sense? To give this dress a little more pizzazz I paired my favorite faux fur vest over it. I love how the two look together and really bring this look up a notch. Then to top it off, I added these suuper affordable boots to give this look a little edge.
