A sweater dress is a staple in the winter. Whether you’re wearing it to church, work, or on a winter date night, here’s 4 cute ways to wear one.

I love a good sweater dress. They’re warm, cozy, stylish and the perfect thing to wear during these colder months. I put together 4 looks for you to copy this season!

Here are 4 Ways to Wear a Sweater Dress

1. Midi sweater dress and boots

I love a good midi sweater dress. They’re basically like wearing a big blanket. But also they can be a little shapeless, so add a belt for some structure and shape, and then a pair of taller ankle boots and tall socks.

If you need extra warmth for this outfit, add a dress coat (like this one), or a shorter puffy coat that’s a little more fitted (like this one).

2. Try a shorter sweater dress with tall boots

This look is one of my faves. You should have a little gap between the dress and the boots, and if it’s super cold, add some leggings or tights so that gap stays warm.

Alternatively, you could wear over the knee boots and have the dress fall below them. If the boots are fitted, they’re okay to go up and under the hem of your dress. If the boots are wider on your leg, I’d recommend a gap so your legs don’t look blocky.

3. Sweater dress with lace up boots

This is a fun and sort of unexpected pairing…I think lace up boots are a great shoe option in the winter, and with a cozy sweater dress and a headband, you have a really cute nice/casual outfit.

4. Dress up your sweater dress with heels

A sweater dress is a great dress option for the colder months when you have to dress up but still want to be warm.

This sweater dress has a flared fit, but heels will work with either a straight or flared fit, and will also work with midi, knee length, or mini lengths of dresses.

If you need extra warmth, add some tights.

    Loving all of these looks, but the knee high boots might be my favorite. I need to find some more sweater dresses for my closet, it’s the one thing I barely own!
