Day to Night in a Sweater Dress and Leather Leggings

Sydne Style shows how to wear a bodycon sweater dress from day to nightTwo of my favorite pieces to wear during winter are sweater dresses and leather leggings. And if you saw my Winter Layering Tips video, you already know that when I’m super cold I wear the two together! Substituting leather leggings for tights is a great way to keep warm, and also makes it easy to transition a sweater dress from day to night.

For day, I folded my sweater dress to turn it into a tunic and layered a cozy sweater vest (now 50% off!) on top. I tapped into the athleisure trend with a leather baseball cap and bright sneakers. I’ve blogged about these comfy kicks before but seriously they feel like you’re walking on air!

For night, I unfolded my dress, added my fave OTK boots and used a bib necklace for a major dose sparkle factor. I hope today’s day-to-night post gives you some inspiration as you’re planning your outfits for the week!

    Wow, I really like these two outfit combos of yours.
    In my opinion, the one with sneakers looks best. I wondered whether you wear these New Balance sneakers with or w/o any socks. Personally I rather like wearing sneakers without socks as long as they are comfy and breathable.
