It’s so nice sometimes to just put one or two things on and you are ready to go. That’s why I think the chunky sweater dress is the ultimate staple for fall and winter. It’s also versatile enough to wear from day to night. To help keep your legs warm, I recommend pairing it with some over-the-knee boots like the Hiline boots from Stuart Weitzman if you know you will be staying out until the evening. I also would add a thick belt to make the dress a little more flattering at the waist.
Miss Selfridge Sweater Dress (Sz 0): Most sweater dresses I find are usually too long and I end up looking like some sort of cupcake. Luckily, I found this one by Miss Selfridge and it’s a great length for a petite person and it’s not too big around the body. It also has these mini side splits which helps make your legs look longer.
Stuart Weitzman OTK Boots (Sz 6): These are my first Stuart Weitzman OTK boots! The model that I got were the new Hiline (vs. the Highland). My heart was actually set on the Highland boots because it has a tapered heel which I like better. The new Hiline boots have a block heel, but almost everything else is about the same. I also went with size 6 (vs. 6.5) because I knew they would stretch over time. Definitely keep that in mind if you are thinking of buying your first pair.
For my first time wearing the Hiline boots, they definitely fit tighter around the leg than most OTK boots. This is advantageous since I don’t have to worry about it slipping down my leg as much. There is no side zipper at the side of the boot so they recommend you folding the shaft over first so you can slip your foot in easier. Then you slowly pull up the folded shaft over your legs and poof! You’re ready to go. One little annoying thing that I did notice was, when I was sitting down, the top of the boot shaft scrunches up and make this extra pile of fabric behind my knees. It’s slightly uncomfortable when you are sitting down for a long period of time. I haven’t worn it with pants or leggings yet so we’ll see if that fixes the problem. Until next time… Thanks for reading!
