First off I’d like to mention that this shoot was the coolest, yet most toxic shoot I’ve ever been a part of! A pungent smell of burnt rubber escaping the sewer vents made for an extremely cool shoot outside the Karmaloop headquarters, but I’m hoping it didn’t kill off too many brain cells in the process!

This grungy and amazingly comfortable sweater dress is the type of thing you can just throw on in seconds and still look great. That’s what makes it so perfect! But what’s coolest about this piece is the fact that it can easily be worked into vastly different outfits given the fact that it’s a basic black and can be worn with any other color or print.

So here’s to incorporating a burst of color and texture! My first outfit is worn with a bright and fuzzy french fleece (which can easily be seen amidst the toxic fumes) that I found while thrifting one day. I  also offset The Brittania Sweater Dress with a checkered yellow and black scarf for a mix n’ match effect. Here are my favorite picks from the site to rock a similar look: The Davida Shawl Coat by BB Dakota  and for a bit of texture and color try this incredibly fun jacket by Chaser. For an identical color to the fleece I’m wearing in the post, try The Alphubel Sherpa Jacket by Nikita. I’d recommend cinching it in the waist with a cute belt – you can try The Skully Belt by *Accessories Boutique.

My mostly minimalistic look is comprised of all black save for the white shoes and rainbow earrings. For this look, try The Old Fashioned Over The Knee Socks by K. Bell, the oh so perfect Big Love Shoe by Jeffrey Campbell,  The All My Money Earrings by *Accessories Boutique, and for a bit of funk check out The Boho Louie Bag.

This last look converts this sweater dress to more of just a sweater (albeit oversized). Any funky colored legging whether it’s with print or not will work just fine! Here are my favorite leggings to pair up with The Brittania Sweater Dress: The Sun And Moon Leggings by See You Monday, The Cut Out Garter Velvet Legging by Widow, and The Sage Leggings by *NYC Boutique (sold out).
