It’s a given that every closet has one or two foolproof pieces that are their secret weapons to success. Successful styling, that is! From time to time, we rely on those error-proof fashion finds to not swoop in and save day, but save our outfits too! For some, that may be the perfect pair of jeans. For others, it may even be a trendy trench. It goes without saying that every closet has a few but true pieces that are nothing short of style-saving.
For Us, our secret weapon to successful styling is something that is both polished and professional. It can easily be transitioned from day to night, and it’s equal parts fitting as it is flattering. Yes, that’s right, our secret weapon is nothing short of this subtle and sweet sweater dress.
When looking for an error-proof, fashion-forward option, it’s important to remember not to have such high expectations. In fact, it’s almost recommended to start with a more traditional style that can instantly be elevated contingent on the reason or season or even occasion.
This Eliza J Fit & Flare Sweater Dress is the prettiest and most practical piece when looking for a secret weapon to successful year-round styling. In terms of this sweater dress, it’s as comfy as our favorite sweater but remains chic enough for the office or a party. Designed with three-quarter sleeves, hidden back-zip closure and a crewneck style, it’s pretty as well as polished.
The most flattering detail amongst this fit and flare dress is the subtle stitching, of course! By highlighting small stitches throughout this dress, it adds a much-needed element of texture to an otherwise simple style. No matter which of the three shades we choose, the stitching will be proven to be nothing short of sensational.
In fact, with its near-perfect reviews, how could we think this dress is anything but a savior? Actually, that is exactly what the reviewers called it. From petite to curvy frames, this sisterhood of the traveling dress seemed to fit each and every body type like a glove. With so many glowing reviews complementing just how ideal this pretty and polished dress is, clearly everyone is swooning over this sweet style.
Not only is this dress style-saving but season-saving, too. Reviewers across the board said this dress was perfect year-round and lasted them from season-to-season. Ironically, we think this may have something to do with those tiny, delicate holes from the subtle stitching. This subtle stitching almost unknowingly works double-duty, as a delicate detail and to make this dress light and breathable. Surely, this unexpected element makes this fit and flare ideal for those often warmer seasons.
It goes without saying, there is nothing worse in life than finding the perfect dress, but absolutely hating the shades available. Surely, we’ve all been there. Trust Us, we have been there too! This fit and flare sweater dress is nothing short of our style secret weapon. Whether selecting the navy, aubergine or spruce hue it comes in, all three of these shades are nothing short of sensational. It’s so rare to find a signature style that comes in one flattering shade, let alone three flattering shades. If we’re being honest, this trio of shades is nothing short of hitting the color trifecta!
Of course, it’s important to note that we understand why many may be a bit hesitant to reach for this style or even one of these shades. In terms of a year-round, season-to-season staple, jewel-tones are rarely the first pick. Fear not because they are just as stylish, if not even more, than our usual black staples.
Go ahead and use the base tone as a guiding force behind accessorizing these jewel tones. The only thing more flattering than the Aubergine shade? A fuschia or blush tone. Add a pop of color with block heel in fuschia and pair with a blush clutch. Surely this will be the perfect style to add some spring into our steps.
Transition into sweater weather, with this sweater dress, of course! Reach for a chambray shirt and pair underneath the navy dress. Slip into an over-the-knee boot and add a wrap coat. Just because it’s cold outside, doesn’t mean this outfit can’t bring the heat!
Last but certainly not least, why not spruce up any look or season with the forest green option? The spruce shade is ideal for the holiday season. Pair with black tights, sequin clutches and embellished heels. Rock a red lip for the most festive outfit ever! Layer this look to perfection with a faux fur or trendy trench. Surely, this style will slay all holiday events and parties!
In life, very few things are certain, but make no mistake when wearing this fit and flare dress because we’re certain it will elevate every ensemble to nothing less than effortless elegance.
