Talk about sweater dresses and below are favorites I picked basically explain about the style more so than what it’s made from.
Sweater dresses are such wonderful garments! They’re soft, easy to move around in, flattering, dressy enough for work, but casual enough for walking the dog. Here are some of my favorites for this fall and winter.
The Ash Sweater Dress by Mark & James is perfect for so many looks. It’s cut generously on top, with loose, long sleeves, but with a more fitted skirt. It echoes the 80s looks we’re seeing so much of, but is far more flattering due to an ultra-feminine cut and a texture that moves without clinging. Wear this with over-the-knee boots and turn heads!
Alexander Wang makes a back-draped tunic that gives you a whole new approach to sexy. It’s oversized, long-sleeved, and covered up in front, but features a draped, cut-out back. It also has a side slit, and an asymmetrical hem with ribbed edges. You could wear it with boots, or with leggings and flats, for a terrific casual look.
The L.A.M.B. cowl-neck “sweatshirt” dress in black would actually go just fine in most workplaces. It features ruching on the long dolman sleeves, and ribbed hem. This would look great paired with a bright red belt, or a silk scarf tied around your neck, Parisian style. Classic heels complete the look.
Talbots is known for its classic, timeless styling, and this turtleneck knit dress is a perfect example. You could wear it with a dressy blazer and heels for work, or a distressed denim jacket and riding boots when you want to go casual.
We’ve seen a lot of embellished shoulders this year, particularly among the young Hollywood crowd. The Danish label DAY Birger et Mikkelsen makes a shoulder jeweled sweater dress that features a patch of satin on each shoulder topped with beads and crystals. This is a look for dates or drinks with your girlfriends. You could pair it with opaque tights and a cute pair of booties for a great night out look.
