In today's edition of the perfect outfit, we're highlighting one of easiest ways to get chic in a hurry: the sweater dress + knee-high boots. With the addition of tights, and maybe a cute beanie for when it's really cold outside, this no-fail outfit is perfect for those days when you feel like you have "nothing to wear." All you have to do is dig in your closet for your favorite sweater dress rendition — or shop one of our picks below — and pair it with a pair of knee-high boots. The result? An effortless, '70s-inspired look that's ideal for the office and even cocktails later on. And guess what? You don't even need to pull out an iron! Style tip: don't be afraid of contrasting your colors. We like pairing a lighter-hued sweater dress with dark plum boots, and mix up your textures with interesting sweater knits and reptilian-embossed boots. See and shop our smart combinations below.
