How to Wear a Sweater Dress Like a Style Star

When the weather is brisk but not yet freezing, a sweater dress can be the centerpiece of an easy, chic and cozy outfit. The best thing about the sweater dress is that you can wear it however you prefer, with whatever you want, and whenever you like, in endless textures, patterns and styles, and in countless colors. Since it presents numerous styling possibilities, keep on reading for our fashionable ways to style your sweater dress.

Opt for a dress style that flatters your figure

The most important thing is to shop with your comfort in mind as a comfortable material and a flattering fit both ensure that you’ll wear your dress for years. Sweater dresses are available in body tight styles, as well as A-line dress or shift that can complement your frame. Also, pay attention to the fabric as sweater dresses are typically made from cotton, a polyester blend, mohair, viscose, or wool. Generally, wool or mohair feels itchy, especially on a sensitive skin, so you might avoid them.

Try a cowl neck

Turtlenecks are popular,  but they’re not always so flattering if you have a short neck. A cowl neck sweater dress elongates your neck and makes you look slim and elegant.

Belt It

If you have a small waist and want to highlight it, try cinching in your sweater dress with a medium to wide belt. The chunkier the knit, the more substantial and wider the belt.

Complete your look with appropriate footwear

Pick your footwear based on the occasion. A ballet flat is a good choice for casual wear. A pair of pumps or heels can be worn for work. Boots can give your outfit an urban touch. (If you’re wearing a shorter sweater dress, you might consider a pair of over-the-knee boots to complete your look. They’re extremely trendy and they also add another layer of warmth to your legs.) And remember that matching, or getting the color of your shoes close to the color of your leggings (if you wear), will make your legs look longer and leaner.
