Look to Try: A Sparkly Collar Necklace with a Sweater Dress a la Hilary Duff

The sweater dress is no doubt a winter essential for dress lovers. In fact, we’re willing to bet that a big percentage of Your Next Dress readers who live in the colder climates is wearing one right now.

The sweater dress is easily one of our most-loved dress styles but we all know that even our all-time favorites need spicing up every now and then.

If you’re looking to switch up the style of your sweater dress, allow Hilary Duff to show you a little trick she demonstrated on the streets of Beverly Hills about a week ago:

Hilary Duff is wearing her sweater dress the usual way: meaning with a pair of opaque tights and knee boots. But then she added that studded collar necklace and suddenly her whole getup doesn’t look so “usual” anymore! :

It’s such an easy and simple yet effective styling trick, we kind of want to smack our foreheads why we didn’t think of it ourselves.

Well, maybe we shouldn’t be too hard on ourselves because Hilary Duff’s own sweater dress already comes with that studded collar. It’s this Gryphon rugby stripe dress which you can wear with or without the necklace piece:
