Q: I recently purchased a lined ivory sweater dress that hits just above the knee. It’s a really cute dress and I want to get as much out of it as I can and make it dress as versatile as possible. What you would suggest in order to dress it down or up?

Here’s how you can dress the ivory sweater dress up and down:
Casual: For a cute day look, add a chunky knit sweater for extra texture and gold ballet flats, which add warmth to the ivory sweater dress.
Playful: Wear brightly colored tights with neutral colored flats and a little clutch.
Formal: For a formal look, pair the sweater dress with dramatic bronze Mary Jane high heels and simple jewelry: gold or bronze bangles will keep the look cohesive.
