Listen. I know this look isn't for everybody, but I have to say the sweatshirt dress is going to be a MAJOR moment for me this fall. HOWEVER, I had to get crafty because this "dress" is actually a 3.1 Phillip Lim Men's sweatshirt... meant to be worn as an actual shirt.
Let's get into it!
What you're looking at is a 3.1 men's sweatshirt with a mock shirt sewn in at the hem to look like there's a button up underneath. Wearing it with a men's Rag and Bone camo jacket and super feminine red, suede Prada heels and men's socks. LAWDAMERCY.
First the dress: a girl's gotta' do what a girl's gotta' do and when I can't find the pieces I'd like to be wearing, I do stuff like this. Got this piece in the men's section a few sizes large to wear it as a mini dress.
Sweatshirt on top and sewn in "shirt" used as my "skirt"
Comfortable. Styl-ey (technical fashion term) and fresh!
The one thing I'll say about sweatshirt dresses, is to get one that fits like an oversized sweatshirt. It's just cooler looking. Resist the urge to get some "cinched at the waist" thing. Please.

Jacket time? More from the men's department. I realize this jacket isn't a perfect color match to the sweatshirt - on purpose. Need dimension baby, texture baby.

Now the shoes were a risk - but you see what I was going for right? Picking up the red from the "dress" adding a BRIGHT pop of color to an otherwise monochrome outfit. Tried to make it practical with the socks but also QUIRKY. Why not?
