I am 5′ 1″ tall and wear size 6 petite clothing, which is why I will be wearing this Oscar de la Renta sweater dress exactly the way it’s pictured if I don’t end up selling on ebay. Yes, it’s a button front dress but throw on a pair of jeans, loose fitting leggings, or a beige ankle length pencil skirt and it’s a maxi cardigan sweater coat! It doesn’t hurt that it’s the same color as my favorite food, chocolate brown!
I love this dress because I love long cardigan sweaters. It’s comfortable and casual yet still offers a sophisticated, clean appearance. Perfect for dressing down under or dressing up over. A nice scarf or some clunky jewelry can change the look completely. The cut makes it versatile enough so why not? For petite women the Lagenlook can be something of a challenge because it’s easy to look like we’re drowning in our clothes. I don’t see this as being a challenge with this particular sweater dress. It’s a size medium – that’s my size!
