Sweater Dress Styled I wit & whimsy

It’s sweater dress season! I love this window in time of the year where you can wear a sweater dress, no tights required and today I am sharing a few looks at how I style my sweater dresses for Fall.

How To Style Sweater Dresses

The sweater meets the dress = sweater dress. Cozy, comfy and totally versatile, I love having a few sweater dresses on rotation each Fall. I also tend to pull some of them back out in the Springtime when the weather begins to warm up again.

I love the ability to dress up or dress down a sweater dress and all the different styles they come in – from turtleneck styles to midi or mini dresses. So may options nowadays with cute balloon sleeves or ruffled collars, etc. At the bottom of the post I have rounded up some favorites of mine that are currently available.

With a Leather Jacket and Ankle Booties

The way I most frequently wear my sweater dresses is with an ankle bootie with a heel for some height and then topped with a leather jacket. I find topping it with a jacket makes me feel less self conscious than I can sometimes for sweater dresses that may not have the most flattering fit or fabric. Instead of swearing it off, adding a cropped jacket can be just the answer.

I like that this sweater dress by Able comes with a belt for a slimming effect and some added versatility.

Neutral Tones and Knee High Boots

I love how a swearer dress looks when paired with knee-high boots. I topped this pretty brown sweater dress from Amazon with a similar-color coat for a monochromatic look up top. I love tonal dressing so I added a bag in the same hue, too.

With Over the Knee Boots

Flat or heeled, a shorter sweater dress pairs beautifully with an over the knee boot.

With Sneakers

I love a midi sweater dress mixed with a clean white sneaker for a more sporty take.

With an Overcoat

I’m all about layering this time of year so adding a classic overcoat or car coat over a sweater dress is a timeless way to take it from day to night. I especially love doing this over a turtleneck sweater dress.
