We all have something in our closet that just seems to sit there. For me, that item is an olive green sweater dress I impulsively purchased during the holidays last year. It’s super cute, but I think the tight silhouette looks a bit strange on my carrot-shaped bod. Regardless, I brought the dress with me to Germany in hopes I would change my mind about it, but it has pretty much stayed on its hanger. I was feeling particularly festive last week, so I decided to pull the olive beauty out of hiding.
Since my biggest beef with this dress is how fitted it is, I decided to pair it with this oversized peplum coat to add some shape. The thermal tights (seriously, the best purchase ever) and boots kept the rest of the look cold weather-friendly, and the beanie and messy hair toned down the feminine silhouette of the coat. I thought the burgundy gloves added a nice holiday touch – olive and burgundy may just be my new favorite holiday colors. They’re such a nice change from the traditional red and green. I swiped on a bright red lip, and was feeling holiday ready. I may just have to take this dress out of hiding more often.
