The Look for Less - Metallic Sweater Dresses

Let's start off this FABULOUS Monday with some Fashion, Shall we??

As the weather cools down, it's easy to let your style slide (and hide in cozy sweat pants, sweatshirts and fuzzy socks!).. but there's no better way to heat things up than with a signature sweater dress

Little Metallic Striped number was recently seen on

Modern Family's Julie Bowen

She is absolutely gorgeous!  The dress is chunky, but the mid-thigh length shows off her toned legs and keeps the look fresh.  If you go with a bold pattern like Julie, make sure to take a hint from her and keep your accessories basic.

I personally love the ruching because since the dress is tight it helps hide ANY lines.

Victoria's Secret Cotton Ribbed Sweater Dress
Orig. $59.50 Clearance $24.99

And my personal favorite,

Victoria's Secret Turtleneck Sweater Dress
Special $69.50

Which I actually own in a Dark Chocolate Brown

Thank you once again crappy bathroom lighting at work.

I love this dress because it is a thicker fabric than the cotton which gives it a nicer look, the turtleneck is full, soft and not restrictive and the length is work appropriate.

I got the dress two Christmas-es ago from my mom Santa Claus and it still feels new!

Questions for the Day:

Do you wear sweater dresses in the winter time?

What's your favorite way to style 'em, boots, pumps, tights?
