It's only rock 'n' roll
...but I like it! Especially as this cute sweater dress is a rather bargainous £20 from New Look. What I like even more is that I can just throw on some tights and my Gap biker boots and I'm good to go.
Its monochrome colour palette means I can have some fun with my hosiery, from coloured opaques to lacy tights to the rock 'n' roll classic: fishnets. And the sweater dress looks great with my H&M cobweb tights, too. (Btw, for more punk-goth Rodarte-style tights, check out Cos and Urban Outfitters where they're £10 and £12 respectively.)
But do you know what I love most about this sweater dress? It's got attitude. What's more, the knitted mohair writing reminds me of my favourite Sonia Rykiel slogan knitwear and this season's sweaters from Bella Freud and Markus Lupfer - hers reads 'je t'aime Jane' (as in Birkin) and his spells out 'love' in sequins. Rock 'n' roll, baby.
