Chanel Grey Sweater Dress

Sweater dresses is another savvy trend this season. This savvy gal is drooling over this grey sweater dress at the Chanel window. It’s just very difficult to justify spending several thousand dollars for a dress even if it is a Chanel, a favorite brand of SG.

Mannequin is wearing grey dress, black tights, black short boots, black scarf, silver chain belt, and black flower. – All by Chanel
Maybe we savvy gals can’t all buy Chanel sweater dress at random but looking to Chanel for inspiration is definitely savoir-faire. These dresses all have very similar silhouette as the Chanel dress. A gal just needs to add her own touch of style to become savvy chic. What will you add to make these dresses more stylish?

Grey dresses from left to right:

Escada Sports $530
Design History $162
Banana Republic Cashmere Dress $170 (This dress is SG's favorite)
Banana Republic Sweater Dress $110

  6. Sweater dresses are chic! I saw this gorgeous greenish color one at H&M, however it was quite itchy, so I didn't buy it, just cause I couldn't stand being itchy all day. :P

    I like the Banana Republic sweater dresses you posted best! :)

  10. Obviously I'm in adoration of the Chanel dress! But I think the Banana Republic Cashmere one could be fabulous as well, and much easier to justify buying!
