I'm infamous for rocking my shoulders—yeah, I said that. So many trends have put a new twist on the sleeves of our sweaters, T-shirts, and now, even dresses. Here's some evidence of how obsessed I am with these shoulder-bearing trends. Cold Shoulder Sweater | One Sleeve Top | Off-the-Shoulder Bell Sleeve Blouse | One Shoulder Crop Top

Told you! So there is no surprise as to why I would fall in love with this Love Scarlett Cutout Sweater Dress from Macy's, right? The reason I love cutouts and sleeves like this is because it takes a rather simple dress and adds an element of surprise and edge to it. So even though I am throwing on a sweater dress and running out the door, the sleeves still elevate it. I added a touch of glam with a this Black Bow Waist belt with gold details, which I SURPRISINGLY got from Walmart—yeah, I said that. When I posted this look for a recent campaign I collaborated with Walmart on, y'all went nuts over the belt! (The point was the dress, but it's okay guys, really. HAH) I slipped on Charlotte Russe's Side Gore Ankle Booties to top off the look. I got this cute Chloe dupe bag in one of my Dia & Co. boxes! To learn more about Dia & Co., check out this blog post: NOT A DRILL, I'M WEARING A TUTU.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a a size 1X in the Love Scarlett Cutout Sweater, which is one size smaller than my usual size. I sized down because I wanted the dress to fit a little tighter. However, the dress is still just a loose fitting dress because of the sweater material. I suggest sizing down one size, or sticking to your usual size for a looser fit!

Macy's sent me this dress to review. All opinions are my own!
