12 On-Trend Sweater Dresses to Add to Your Wardrobe Now

Written by Jackie Condura & Curated by Channele Sawyer

There are some amazing trends for the Fall/Winter 20-21 season, but few end up having as great an impact on the fashion world and reach the level of popularity as one of this seasons biggest and most notable trends….the sweater dress!  It’s everywhere in retail, it’s completely wearable for anyone and it’s one of those quintessential staples and an essential piece you will have in your closet for years to come. If you don’t have one already, you should get it.

This highly stylish knit dress hits all the marks being universally versatile for work or weekends. It can be dressed up or down and it’s a one-piece wonder that is ultra- comfortable to wear making getting dressed easy. The most common color you will see this dress featured in is classic winter white which is a creamy white shade, although it is offered in other colors as well.

Available in various lengths such as a long maxi reaching the ankle, midi which is very flattering on the leg to a shorter knee length, no matter what your preference, there is a style for you. Design details can include modest puff or balloon sleeves (another huge trend), asymmetrical shapes, shoulder pads, different knits, cable patterns, multiple necklines to choose from and more as this item continues to evolve.  Ribbed knits were really in this year. Silhouettes range from straight cut to a more contoured shape.

If you’re wondering how to wear it and capture the trend, we’ve got you covered. Stylist tips – this dress pairs well with knee high boots regardless of length.  For a rock and roll, Isabel Marant Inspired look. Rock this look with white leather boots with silver metallic studs. For those who have a straight style that is slightly oversized, add a black or brown belt (horse bit hardware is major) to cinch in the waist and give it some dimension. Top it off with a statement necklace to really elevate your look. For a Bottega Veneta, street chic look, rocking a sweater dress under a statement puffer, with a squared toed boot is really in right now.  

Quite a useful addition to bring into your wardrobe that is expected to be around for a while.
