Looking Better in the Sweater Dress!

I have always loved sweater dresses. Not only are they generally form fitting and extremely stylish, but they are also comfortable and classy. Wearing a sweater dress with simple accessories and a nice pair of pumps, or slip-ons, and you are basically dressed for most all occasions.

A sweater dress is a longer version of a pullover knitted sweater. Sweater dresses are sold in different lengths, from thigh length to close to the ankle. The most common style of the sweater dress ends just at the knee; and this versatile length flatters all figure types!


Sweater Dress Fun Fact: The sweater dress is a cold weather, winter and fall garment that can be worn in many different ways, and when worn, no jacket or coat is needed!

Great Ways to Wear the Sweater Dress:

  1. With ankle boots.
  2. With thigh-high or knee-high boots.
  3. With platform shoes.
  4. With leggings, nylons, stockings or bare-legged.
  5. With closed or open-toed pumps.
  6. With long strands of pearls or chains around the neck.
  7. With a waist belt.


The styles of sweater dresses vary significantly. Many are form fitted at the waist merely by the cut of the dress, however, for more loose fitting dresses, a stylish belt can be worn around the waist to accentuate your figure and to give the dress more oomph!

The necklines of sweater dresses consist of V-necked, square, turtle neck and scooped neck.  The cozy dresses can be purchased in an array of colors, and many times the fabric consists of knitted, crocheted or cashmere, giving sweater dresses their soft, feminine look and feel.


As with most clothing items, different accessories can change the look of the outfit. From conservative to playful to sassy to high fashion, you can vary the aura and mood of your voguish ensemble as easily as changing your jewelry or your shoes.

Suit jackets, tights or leggings, long, dangling necklaces and belts are all accessories that add punch and pizzazz to your sweater dress.

For a fun, fashionable look, sweater dresses can be purchased that include attached hoods, pockets, bows and ties. Some dresses come with matching belts!

When worn with leggings, nylons or tights, a sweater dress looks just right!


Sweater Dress Fun Tip: Adding sparking jewels to the material, or glittery accessories adds glitz and glam to the dress, making the garment perfect for evening wear!


In all kinds of weather, when you are decked out in the fashionable sweater dress, you will always look well put together!
