I never thought I’d be interested in wearing dresses with pants again, ever — it can feel like the look belongs to certain eras (versus a style statement that is evergreen), plus as a shorty (and a curvy one at that) it can be hard to make the proportions work. But when I saw one earlier this year in a Nordstrom newsletter, I immediately wanted it — even though it was a turtleneck. I haaaate turtlenecks.
I also couldn’t find the one illustrating the newsletter, so… fine. (It may have been this one.) But I keep coming back to the idea of it! I could see it being cute with kick crops and boots, or skinny jeans (as shown here), or even the Spanx faux leather leggings (as shown here). So I’m delighted to find one that’s a V-neck, as well as an adjustable slit.
This one is even affordable, which means it’s going in my shopping cart — I might even try it in the taupe, pictured. (Naaah, I’m totally getting the black. It also comes in a cream color.) It’s $88, and available in XS-XL.
Some similar options at other price points: this turtleneck is only $29 and has a more manageable above-the-knee length this long-sleeve cardigan from The Range is $225, and Saylor has a number of cute sweater dresses with more modest slits for $180-$290. (I feel like my search skills are failing me here — have you seen other sweaters with high slits like this?)
