I recently picked up this sweater in my local store. I tried it on and thought that it would work well with tights. It's the perfect length, covers the butt and looks really cute with boots. However, I just don't have the stomach for it in tights. I need something that is just a little bit more structured and less clingy for my midsection. The material is nice, warm but not too heavy. It's trendy. Price is reasonable. It's just not right for my body.
I ordered this item online on a whim and I couldn't be more pleased. I'm more of a sheath style type of girl, but I decided to give the fit and flare a try. I'm very, very busty with skinny legs and this dress makes me look like I have a little more shape on the bottom. It's a little bit "Dorothy" (from the Wizard of Oz) with the color and polka dots, but I paired it with the chambray jacket (as another poster suggested) and it looks great. I work in an Executive Office, so I'll be able to wear the outfit to work on a Friday - but it's a little bit too fun for most days (the office is a tad uptight). I will probably also pair it with a white jean jacket on the weekends. The material is pretty structured.
