This time we are talking about sweater dresses. Yes, you got it right, in most cases, it’s just a longer version of a classic pullover knitted sweater. Modern labels and retailers sell them in different lengths, from thigh length versions to the ones that hit ankles. The most common designs of sweater dresses end at the knee. The great news is the versatility of a sweater dress it flatters all figure types, no matter if you are skinny or plus sized woman. In this article, I am about to show you great ideas on what goes with a sweater dress and how to look at your best while wearing this knitwear on the streets.
Keep an eye on a long sleeve knee length sweater made of heavy wool. Style it with white trainers and dark burgundy handbag made of high-quality leather. Complete it with Wayfarer sunglasses.
The best time of year to wear this cozy garment is Fall and Winter, but I’ve seen girls who wear it during the Springtime as well. This dress looks good with any length of the boot (from thigh highs to ankle boots), you are free to wear it with sneakers, heels, sandals, Birks and any other footwear types. For instance, a woman wearing ankle boots with a shorter sweater dress looks casual and funky, while those who appear on the streets in longer sweater dresses styled with knee boots look elegant.
Layering Sweater Dresses
If you are more into layering, then keep in mind coats and jackets. I love to see girls who team short sweater dresses with long coats, it looks both sexy and elegant, and I love to see ladies in knee-length sweater dresses who complete their outfits with short leather jackets.
Another great thing about sweater dresses is their ability to stretch. So, if you have had too much food and wine, there will be no problem for hiding any areas you don’t want to be seen. Keep in mind, not all sweater dresses are created equal, there are fitted, slouchy, oversized, tight, etc. You can have fun with oversized knits in eye-catching prints and keep it neutral color for an elegant appearance.
Best Styles Of Sweater Dresses
The styles of sweater dresses vary in different lengths, cuts, and designs. There are V-shaped styles, square, turtlenecks, cowl neck versions, there are cool options with hoods, front pockets, self-tie belts, long sleeved or sleeveless designs, etc. I love basic styles that look like elongated sweaters, but I know many brands who sell bodycon sweater dresses, slim fit cashmere versions, loose-fit styles with side slits, etc. Speaking of fabrics, then the best material for me is cashmere. Sweater dress can be worn with tights, leggings, or even skinny jeans, just make sure the color of your dress and tights look coordinated or match each other.
