How to wear a sweater dress

How do you wear a sweater dress?

The softness, warmth and (often) streamlined silhouette invite you to take your sweater dress from one season to the next, simply by changing up the accessories. Wear it with tights? Of course. Bare legged? Sure. Paired with skinny jeans? Absolutely!

Styling your sweater dress is really all about the layering. And by creating new, unexpected combinations, you’ll keep your look fresh and make the most of your wardrobe.

Tip #1:

Maximize mixing and matching. Think of your solid-hued sweater dresses as a canvas. Accentuate with a jacket or sweater in a statement-making pattern. Break up the look with a solid scarf and tights. Get creative with your layering here – after all, ‘tis the season for getting cozy.  

Tip #2:

Layer in reverse. Adding pieces over a sweater dress may seem obvious, but how about giving your look some unexpected detail by slipping a contrasting long-sleeve tee or button-down shirt underneath? For inspiration, think of how you like to style your sweaters. The same rules apply here.

We love the way a subtle stripe catches the eye under scrunched-up sleeves. Or how about a button down with the collar and sleeves peeking out?

Tip #3:

Enhance the coziness factor and give your sweater dress a more casual spin with a pair of sneakers and cozy sweater. The right shoes (like the high-tops pictured below) can make your look feel both modern and playful.

Tip #4:

A sweater dress paired with boots may perhaps be the most classic of combinations. It works with boots of any height and many different styles. We love the way the slouch of the tall boots pictured below plays off the cowl neck of the sweater dress.

Tip #5:

Let your accessories shine. A striking pair of drop earrings, long necklaces worn layered, and an oversized scarf are each just enough to complete your outfit with express-yourself detail. And the accessories you choose are an ideal way to dress your look up or down.
