My Fashion Resolution for 2022: Dress Up!

Do you have any fashion resolutions for 2022? My resolution is to dress up! I’m not talking about getting dressed up in evening wear, but I would like to have a few outfits ready that are polished and professional-looking. This doesn’t mean that I have to feel uncomfortable wearing them either! Yes, we have learned a lot about comfortable styling after staying in so much over the last few years. But I don’t want to live all of my life in joggers and sneakers. There’s something empowering about being dressed up and put together. This sweater dress outfit with mid-heeled knee high boots is easy to wear and gives you the best of both worlds – comfort and style.

Dress Up Outfit High/Low Style

I put together this look with all high-end fashion and also with lower-priced look-alike pieces. You can go all high-end (pictured on the left), all low-priced (on the right) or mix and match from both sides for what is known as high-low styling. Take a look and you can decide for yourself.

The Sweater Dress

This outfit is centered around this gorgeous Victoria Beckham Belted wool-blend turtleneck midi dress. The creamy neutral beige is a fresh change from dark winter colors and is on trend this year. The flare skirt and sash belt make it flattering. This dress is well worth the $1,290 price tag, but you can get a simplified yet still high quality version for a lot less cash with this Rails Mila tie waist turtleneck sweater dress for $268.

The Mid-Heel Boot

I may never go back to wearing 4″ heels but block heel boots are (almost) as easy to wear as sneakers. The beauty of a knee high boot is they hide your legs, keep you warm and you don’t have to worry too much about the stockings you wear. I would wear a pair of tights under this sweater dress with high boots. These Vince Kendra knee high boots will set you back $595, or you can opt for these Franco Sarto Tribute block heel knee high boots for only $159.

The Padded Crossbody Handbag

Add some texture to this clean look with a neutral colored Bottega Veneta padded cassette bag for $3500. I adore this Acorn Gold color because it will go with anything! However you can get a very similar looking bag for only $48 with this Olivia Miller Women’s Wyatt crossbody (the same quality not included).

The Charcoal Overcoat

Wrap yourself in a warm and woolly overcoat. A charcoal grey shade is less harsh than black and it looks fabulous with this tonal sweater dress outfit. This Nordstrom Signature Waterfall lapel double face wool & cashmere coat is gorgeous and well priced at $599. But you can spend a whole lot less with this Halogen double face wool coat for only $129.
