Sweater dresses are awesome. They make for a great, simple, comfortable look that is absolutely perfect for this time of year. Plus, a sweater dress with a nice bag and nice shoes and not much else makes a great statement. That’s what I had in mind for today’s look, which is inspired by Emma Stone.

And here is what I came up with:

Sam & Libby Anistacia Shoes in Black ………. $25.99
Aldo Fretwell Bag ………. $48

I couldn’t get a picture of that dress in black, but yes, it’s indeed supposed to be a simple, black, turtlenecked sweater dress. The belt is not included, and I’m glad for that, because I don’t like it that much. And I have a general aversion to dresses that are already belted. I would much rather prefer to belt them on my own, with belts I already have, or not at all, and not have to deal with empty belt loops.

I went with this dress because it has short sleeves. Emma’s is sleeveless, which might be appropriate enough in some offices, and inappropriate in others. I figured I’d play it safe and go with sleeves that wouldn’t be objectionable. It’s also a perfect, office-appropriate length.

I paired it with peep toe pumps, which are generally office-appropriate, and threw in a purple bag, because purple works so well with black.

And there we have a lovely, comfortable look for your work wardrobe inspired by Emma Stone!
