There’s a lot to love about a sweater dress, but the versatility factor rings in at number one. Oversized, chunky dresses make for the perfect out-of-bed compromise in colder months, making even the biggest of food babies undetectable; fitted minis offer the same convenience without sacrificing all of the glorious curve-hugging, ego-boosting potential.
Regardless of which is more your style (maybe it’s both!), the two-in-one cozy option will keep you warm and comfortable from day to night — just add tights. Above and below, here are some of our favorites available right now.
American Eagle Turtleneck Sweater Dress, $36
The raised hem offers a simple update on this classic silhouette. (And for under $40, you can stock up on two.)
Callahan Nubby Crewneck Dress, $121
The knitted ball detailing on this crewneck number is super fun, while the ribbed hems add structure to the loose fit.
Zara Roll Neck Maxi Dress, $70
Opting for the ultra-oversized leaves a lot of room to play around with what you style underneath, from heattech to a wide-leg trouser. Plus, the high ribbed neck will offer plenty of hair-tuck opportunities.
BCBGeneration Striped Sweater Dress, $98
Perfect for both work and play, this is one of those dresses that make tights optional post-work.
Acne Studios Daija Knitted Turtleneck Sweater Dress, $258
Wear this mohair and wool knit as is with a pair of sneakers, or switch it up entirely by layering over a midi-skirt with heels. (Particularly great because it is currently 40% off.)
