I love wearing sweater dresses in the fall. Not only are they cozy and warm, they’re versatile. You can wear them on the weekend with boots, a scarf and jean jacket, or a felt fedora and trench coat during the winter months. There’s a sense of simplicity when it comes to wearing a sweater dress to work as well. With no stress of putting a top and bottom together in the morning, just add a belt, jewelry and jacket and you’ve got and easy yet sophisticated outfit. Leggings and flats work perfectly for casual Fridays.
When it comes to purchasing a sweater dress, I prefer to buy them in neutral colors, that way they’ll always be able to match with what you have. This Merona cable knit sweater dress ($30) in camel is a perfect base to build on to. I like this bright orange Merona skinny belt with harness ($13), wear it around your waist to break up the dress, as well as add some definition to your silhouette.
On top, I love this cobalt Udobuy collarless trench coat ($36). It has a loose fit so your sweater dress won’t bunch up or get too bulky underneath, and the color stands out against the dress. Wearing a collarless jacket also allows you to add a scarf if the temperature drops. Add this Rara Avis by Iris Apfel gold color foil animal print bangle bracelet ($20) for glam. As always, this complete sophisticated fall look for under $100.
