NYC OUTFITS: The PERFECT Black Maxi Sweater Dress

What's better than an LBD? The perfect black maxi sweater dress! I get so many questions on this dress every time I wear it. I can't blame you, this dress has it all. I fell in love when I saw it too. Square neckline, puffy sleeves, tie belt, side slit, curve-hugging fabric, what's not to love?


All you have to do is throw it on. Chic, sophisticated, flirty - you're guaranteed to be the center of attention. I wore it on a recent trip to NYC, so I'm sharing the details.


I usually wear a M/L in body-con dresses, but I highly recommend ordering a smaller size if you're in-between sizes. The fabric has give and will stretch out.
