Sweater dresses are a timeless classic that should be in every woman’s closet. This staple is one that will never go out of style. This year, the cold-shoulder and lace-up trends are a common theme designers are featuring in sweater dresses.
Me personally, I love a chunky cable knit sweater dress with a cowl neck. Loose fitting, warm and comfortable, a chunky sweater dress can be accessorized so many ways. What’s great about the cowl neck is it acts a built in scarf so you can skip your search for a necklace or infinity scarf. For a dressier look, you can go simple with with a pair of tall heeled boots and minimal jewelry like I did here.
STYLISH SAVER TIP: To emphasize your waistline, a skinny belt makes for a great accessory to define your shape.
Depending on the weather, I like to pair black tights with my sweater dresses and boots. It just looks more chic and keeps those limbs warm in the winter (not to mention you don’t have to worry about shaving!)
For a more relaxed look, an over-sized chunky sweater dress pair with sneakers is always sporty. Adidas are a huge sneaker trend right now which I recommend.
If an off-the-shoulder, cold-shoulder or lace-up dress are more your style, try accessorizing with a floppy or felt hat and booties for a street-chic look.
A form fitting sweater dress can be worn multiple
ways as well; layered under a blazer or jacket, accessorized with a blanket scarf, styled with tights and pump or my personal favorite, with a flannel shirt tied at the waist.
