Dresses are difficult because they almost always call attention to themselves. A pullover mutes the dress making it more wearable.
Here’s what to do:
1. Pull out that dress you can never seem to wear.
2. Find a light sweater—loose weave, crochet, sheer, or wrap—in a neutral or matching color—to wear over it.
3. You may need to add a belt.
A sophisticated, low-profile look. A hint of the dress shows but otherwise, it looks like you’re wearing a skirt with subtle matching elements above.
