One of my all-time favorite things is a comfy sweater dress. They’re relaxed and cozy and they make you want to snuggle up. And just by changing up your accessories and footwear, you get tons of mileage out of them. Here are 5 ways to style a sweater dress.
1. Pair a Sweater Dress With Boots
Boots and sweater dresses go hand in hand to give you that relaxed, classy look. Tall boots are classic and elegant. Ankle booties are a little edgier and modern. Boots with a stacked heel complement earthy knits by adding balance. Suede boots look fab!
Black and cognac boots are reliable and versatile options but if you like something a little different, try a gray boot like I’ve done here. In this case, it picks up on the color in the dress, but it’s also a great neutral that will look spectacular with almost any color sweater dress you own.
2. Belt It
Some knits are loose or rather chunky and hide your waist, so here’s an idea: try cinching in your knit dress with a beautiful belt. The chunkier the knit, the more substantial and wider yo can go with the belt. Wear it around your waist or wear a wider belt loosely just at your waist on an angle towards one hip.
Add a scarf for visual interest (and warmth on those really cold days!), a pair of boots and a bag, and you’re done.The thing I love about all of these pieces is how neutral they are. They look great with this sweater dress, but they’ll go with everything else in your wardrobe.
3. Wear a Sweater Dress with Leggings
Have you ever come across a sweater dress that you wanted to buy, but you thought it was too short? Instead of passing it up, all you need to do is add a pair of black leggings to your outfit. Leggings turn your sweater dress into a long top creating a look that is hip and modern.
4. Try a Cold Shoulder Sweater Dress
This fall, a cold shoulder dress is hot! (I just couldn’t resist that one! LOL!) But seriously, cold shoulder styling is still a big deal so if you’re looking for a way to freshen up your sweater dress capsule, give serious thought to one in a cold shoulder style like this lovely burgundy one.
5. Dress it Up
The finer the knit, the more formal the sweater dress and the easier it is to dress it up. This sleek and sophisticated midi-length sweater dress is already on the road to dressy. Add heels, silver jewelry, and a ladylike clutch, and you’re ready for a special evening out.
