How to Wear a Sweater Dress

The Easy Trick to Styling Your Sweater Dress

Why is something this basic so tricky to style? vThe sweater dress is so slouchy and easy, we either overcomplicate how to wear it or we veer on the side of too easy. The trick is finding the balance and adding interest, because quite frankly, sweater dresses aren't totally interesting on their own. Instead, play with the proportion by adding knee-high boots, and add a more definitive silhouette with a structured jacket, coat, or blazer. And, if your sweater dress is oversize, go one step further and cinch the waist with a belt to define your curves. As for the rest, don't go crazy — just finish it off with your favorite Winter accessories, like a printed scarf, cozy beanie, and sophisticated tote. We've done the work — just shop the outfit to pull it together on your own.
