The minimal/simple a garment piece is, the more versatile is. This short sleeve wool cashmere dress is such a piece.
It has an easy fit, fine tailoring and luxurious fabrics in a neutral color, while the two front suede pockets and a high neck and longline silhouette add a modern touch. It is a timeless piece to build up a well-rounded classic closet.
What is great about this sweater dress is that not much styling efforts are needed to create versatile looks. Just add a pop of colors to liven up the neutral outfit with accessories and small details. And add a piece of outwear such as a cape or maxi coat to elevate the simple outfit.
