Few items combine that scrumptious cozy feeling with a put-together look better than one of the best sweaterdresses. Like the airy fabrics and shoulder-baring cuts of summer, there’s an inherent effortlessness to knit dresses that are highly covetable in the fall and winter months. But beyond the ease of wear, sweaterdresses pack a lot of versatility, whether styled for relaxed moments at home with comfortable sneakers or dialed up with heels and jewelry for work, an event, or date night.
The vast range of silhouettes and designs on offer play into the sweaterdress’s universal appeal, from the classics like cashmere crewnecks, chunky turtlenecks, and basic black to of-the-moment styles like ribbed polos, belted midis, and minimal maxis à la the ’90s and ’00s. No matter your taste, there’s a tone and pattern for you. Scroll on to discover the 10 best sweaterdresses to fill your cold-weather wardrobe with stylish options for every taste.
While you may be stocked on festive LBDs, the little black sweaterdress is another wardrobe staple. There are casual crewnecks you can toss on with sneakers and boots or more detailed versions fit for an event.
