Tips to Pull Off a Short Sweater Dress x Zaful


When I received this pink sweater dress from Zaful, the first thing I noticed is that it is short. Almost too short to pull off as a sweater dress, but I was determined to make it work! I really gravitated towards the pink color (a given) and the cool sporty stripes at the neckline and sleeves. I like the mix of feminine and sporty in this dress, it makes it super trendy. The dress is also unexpectedly soft for the price of $23.12, similar to my experience with the sweater I received from Zaful in this post.


So how do you pull off a short sweater dress and keep it classy? Below are my key styling tips:

  • Wear tights! Adding tights to the outfit helps cover up skin and creates the illusion that the sweater dress is longer than it really is.
  • Pair the dress with over the knee boots. This is one of my favorite styling tricks when it comes to wearing short dresses or skirts, as you can also see in this post.
  • Bonus: layer over the knee socks under your boots and over the tights. This adds an extra element of style to your look and draws the eye towards the boots rather than the hemline of your dress.

But the most important style tip of all is to own it and wear it with confidence. I firmly believe that if you believe you can pull off the look, others will think the same.


For this outfit, I paired the sweater dress with navy over the knee boots to offset the pink, and added a pair of over the knee white and pink socks. I chose burgundy colored tights and a gray and pink bag to keep with the feminine vibe. For my jewelry, I kept it fun and colorful and went with statement rose gold earrings, an orange bracelet watch, and small rings.
