A sweater dress is comfy enough to snuggle up on your couch as you watch a movie with your boo, yet cute enough to wear out on the town on a brisk winter's night, especially when it's a bold purple shade. One dilemma you may have is whether to wear footed or footless tights with this type of dress. For the solution you must first answer a few simple questions.
Where Are You Going?
One of the first considerations when deciding on which tights to wear with your purple sweater dress is where you're headed. If you're going to a more casual affair, such as a stroll with a few friends, wear footless tights in any color your heart desires. But if you're planning on dancing the night away or going on a hot date, wear the footed tights. For a date or party, a pair of tights that closely match your complexion work well.
What's the Weather Like?
If it's going to be warm, the choice here is clear. It's already hot enough in that sweater dress --- put on a pair of footless tights to keep your legs and feet cool. For a warm day, pick a lavender color for the tights or if you want to go a little bold, a bright yellow. If it's a little chilly outside or you see snowflakes accumulating on the ground, pick footed opaque purple tights to keep your toes as warm as possible.
What Shoes Are You Wearing?
Some ladies love shoes so much that they pick the shoes they want to wear before they even choose the outfit. If you already have a pair of shoes in mind to wear with your purple sweater dress, you've got to wear tights that fit with those shoes. For instance, if you've settled on a pair of strappy sandals, go with footless tights. But if you want to wear a pair of pumps or Mary Janes that cover the feet, wear footed tights.
Now that you've decided on your tights, onto your other accessories. First of all, pick a belt to go with your dress. Black, a deeper purple or even a gold belt looks pretty fly with a purple sweater dress. Also, match the outfit with purple gem jewelry (necklaces and bracelets) accented with silver or gold. A matching purple headband for your hair, or purple hair clips, is a nice finishing touch for this outfit, as is a gold or silver purse -- preferably a clutch if you're going out on the town. Make sure you match gold to gold and silver to silver accessories.
