Around Again: The Sweater Dress

The sweater dress is one I always want.

Despite whatever else is happening in life; this dress is unbeatable for ease, comfort and look.

The long sweater style is a dress that sits between the casual and the dressy; it can take you anywhere on the fashion barometer. A dress to wear when you don’t know what to wear and a dress that works on those days when nothing in the wardrobe will do.

I have plenty of those – that never changes.

There are days I wake up and cannot even begin to fathom out what I feel like wearing. Life is throwing curveballs when it comes to what to wear at the moment and this tends to open up a world of indecision and oftentimes disinterest. It’s not what we want. Jeans or tailored pants are all well and good but there are some days when I cannot begin to contemplate a tighter silhouette and as much as I do love my new current liason with the sweats – It cannot be every day.

That’s where a sweater dress works its magic. It is comfortable, super flattering and perfect with those boots we talked about earlier and it looks great underneath a puffa or an overcoat.

It’s my winner for today. xv

a dress for easy going. I have one in black and wear it with black legging underneath
because it is very short for me.

Good Morning Vicki!
The sweater dress has always been a favourite of mine in fall/winter, so cozy and comfortable! It won’t get wrinkled when holding grand-children, and comfortable enough to get on the floor to play with them too! Feminine, stylish, and comfortable!


Good morning Vicki! I remember now a sweater dress I had years ago; you are so good about bringing back great fashion memories that still work to this day. I wonder if the right sweater dress would be great to wear in the house during winter, just to feel pretty again!


Yes! Most definitely… that’s what made me think to write about it … another easy alternative :)


I love sweater dresses and have several. Once I arrived to work to find I had mine in backwards but we won’t talk about that! I love the simplicity of just popping one on and looking pulled together with rights or boots. Or sneakers for really casual days. I also like it’s summer persona – the tee shirt dress.
