When it’s 5 degrees out with wind chill, my desire to dress well is often trumped by my need to dress warmly. On those days I am happy I have a small arsenal of statement jewelry to wear that spruce up otherwise bland outfits. 


How do you avoid dressing like a slob in the dead of winter?

I impulsively donated most of my sweater dresses last summer – I often forget how necessary thick knits are in the summer and just see them as bulky monstrosities that take up room – and have had to buy new ones this fall. I am in the middle of another donating binge and feel the need to donate all of my sundresses but I am going to instead box them up and reevaluate in the Spring.


If you are also in the market for sweater dresses, here are a few other options I found (some pricier than others):
