The first way to make your choice is by following your usual taste for sweaters: do you prefer them in oversized version or close to the body? Long sweater or small thin sweater? And what does your Personal Shopper suggest?
The oversized knit dress... if you're looking for comfort
The most comfortable version of the sweater dress is the oversized one. It gives you freedom of movement and keeps you warm, as long as you don't choose it too bulky either.
If you want to try oversize without adding too much volume to your silhouette, that's possible too! With a fine knit dress, like cashmere for example.
The ribbed knit dress... if you want to emphasize your shape
On the other hand, do you want a model that follows your movements? Well, ribbed knit is on trend again. This season, you'll find it mostly in midi cut, easier than ever to wear.
With kitten heels or sneakers, a blazer or a perfecto, create the associations that suit you.
The short version of the sweater dress... if you are looking for a rocker style
Shorter, the sweater dress looks like ... sweaters, yes. And that's what gives a little cheeky (and rock) to your outfit.
Choose a neutral tone (beige or gray), which will always be easier to wear, whatever the context. With a pair of high boots and a trench coat, you get a timeless style.
The turtleneck sweater dress... if you're looking for elegance
Is it too cold right now? Go for the elegance of the turtleneck, combined with the model you like the most.
Short dress? Go for a chunky knit. Long or oversized dress: add a belt to mark the waist, which will help you avoid an unwanted shapeless effect.
Blazer, trench, perfecto, it goes with all your jackets.
How and with what to wear a sweater dress?
There are as many ways to wear a sweater dress as there are styles. Here is a selection of looks created for you by our Personal Shoppers. Get inspired!
Are you a sporty type (or do you tend to run around)? Start with a ribbed knit dress that follows you around. Add some volume (and warmth) with a full-length down jacket in a neutral but bright color like off-white.
Slip on your sneakers or order them from your personal shopper, and let's hit the runway!
The most elegant sweater dress for work, a party or dinner? It's the one with the funnel neck and balloon sleeves (very lightly and just above the cuffs, for a trendy effect).
Complete your outfit with a pair of black loafers (preferably matching your clutch bag) and a blazer in a neutral tone close to the dress. A combination of cream and gray is still very classic, but so chic
Who says you can't layer two wool pieces? This is exactly the basis of a good boho look for fall-winter. We start with a maxi dress in fine wool, with a light fall. Then we add a cardigan in large knit, by contrasting the color. Choose a long vest too, to accentuate the verticality of the silhouette.
Do you like straight cuts and the comfortable neutrality of a minimalist look? This is the outfit for you.
A beige turtleneck sweater dress, to be combined with a grey straight cut cardigan. With or without sleeves, it's your choice (both are trendy, it's up to you). A mini shoulder bag, a pair of square toe booties (black for both accessories) and you have your look! Simple, easy to recreate from your basics and just as easy to wear.
