Morning Line: April 8

Aqua Draped Sleeve Sweater ($59) // Teardrop Pendant ($49) // Envelope Sheath Dress ($150)

Layered dresses are a hot trend right now, so I thought I would recreate that look with a boxy sweater over a sleek, fitted sheath.  Wearing a sweater over a fitted dress is also a great way to go from day-to-night after work.  Just lose the sweater before you head out.

Two comments: 1) This sweater is much (MUCH) cuter in person.  The color is brighter aqua, and the side vents make it a fun, breezy piece.  2) This dress is not the ideal choice for this.  Banana Republic is selling a knee-length, racerback sheath in both white and navy, but they’re not selling it online.  If you’re looking for something ideal, this Mallory from Jones New York is a better choice.

Looking for something similar in plus-size? Try this Kasper sheath and this cropped pullover from Target.

    Why is the dress not ideal? I’m guessing the asymmetrical hemline? I like the layering idea, though.

      The length is a little shorter than I’d like. It’s a 35″ hem, knee-length is usually 37 or 38.
