Take a look at a few tips on how to wear a sweater dress below.

  •  Belted - As sweater dresses can be quite shapeless, try cinching them in at the waist with a belt. Creating this contour is a great way of defining your silhouette. For thicker knit dresses, create balance by teaming them with wider belts. If you’re going to belt your sweater dress, stick to looser-fitting styles.
  •  Layered - is just one way of how to wear a sweater dress. Layer a sweater dress underneath a structured coat, with thick tights, and a cosy scarf. The looser the sweater dress, the more structured your coat should be. To add extra detail, try popping a collared shirt on underneath your sweater dress.
  •  With Tights - Tights look great when paired with looser-fitting sweater dresses. Thick black tights are a staple, but also try branching out with patterned or coloured tights. To stay extra warm, add another layer by wearing a pair of knee-high socks over your tights.
  • Accessories - A chic long statement necklace, drop earrings, or high-shine cuffs are all great ways of styling a sweater dress. When looking at how to wear a sweater dress, accessories are a great way of updating your look.
  • With Boots - For an edgier take on sweater dressing, team them with a pair of boots. Ankle boots are all the rage this season, so a black leather pair with a thick heel is a stylish option. Alternatively, sweater dresses also look great paired with knee high boots.
  • Texture - Play up the tactile factor and team your sweater dress with contrasting textures. A woolly sweater dress would look great paired with a sleek leather jacket. Alternatively, patent and high-shine metallic accessories would also work well to complement a sweater dress.
