The knitted maxi dress
The maxi dress when you're not that tall : fashionistas would say "it's a no no " . Well I say its a YES. I say yes because first of all , wearing a knitted sweater dress is like slipping you're whole body in a UGG shoe. Secondly : high heels exist. Thirdly : you can wear it by day and accessorize it by night.
I've created here a double "day/night look". Casual but chic:
-The casual touch is the beanie ( Urban outfitters have amazing sales , you can get beanies for 5 bucks).
-The chic touch is the statement necklace . This one is from J-Crew. You can also try to wear it with a tribal inspired necklace like this one from forever21:
