I recently snagged this $18 grey sweatshirt dress from Walmart, and I love it! It’s so easy and fun to wear, features pockets, and is perfect for spring and summer. I am wearing the XS as it is a roomy style. I would recommend sizing down unless you are larger chested. Today I wanted to share some inspiration on how to style a sweatshirt dress. It’s such a great blank canvas to wear so many ways. I have 8 to share with you!
How to Style a Sweatshirt Dress – Option 1: Add a Layer
The easiest and most obvious choice when it comes to how to style a sweatshirt dress is to add a layer. My first four examples all feature different outer layers. Depending on your climate and temps, you could always add tights and another heavier coat on top of these. Here are some options:
- Denim jacket and booties
- White denim jacket and white tall boots
- Faux leather jacket and black ankle boots
- Cardigan and mules
How to Style a Sweatshirt Dress – Option 2: Get Creative with Your Shoes and Accessories
During the warmer months, you don’t need ay extra layers! The dress stands on it’s own and just needs cute shoes and accessories. Consider a cute hat, fun sneakers, my favorite summer Tory Burch sandals, or a mom friendly bag.
How to Style a Sweatshirt Dress – Option 2: Mix it Up!
I loved getting creative here! Instead of wearing shirts as usual, have some fun and make them part of your look. Tie your flannel high around your waist to create a more flattering shape. Feeling ambitious? Try to match your sneakers! Or grab your favorite graphic tee and knot it over your dress. I love the challenge of using what you have to make one piece feel so different!
