If you’re like me, you’re digging the sweater dress trend this season. I don’t have a lot of time to fuss with layers so tossing on a cozy-comfy dress is almost always my go-to choice.
Paired with tall boots, booties or even sneakers, the look of a sweater dress can be easily changed to suit your mood.
Here are some of my favourites from American Eagle plus a few tips on what to look for and why.
Having a classic colour is a must because there are so many different ways you’ll be able to style it. The AE Soft & Sexy Plush Shift Dress in Golden gives you options… and who doesn’t love options?!? On it’s own with a long necklace, paired with a trendy leopard-print scarf or worn with white kicks and a jean jacket, this dress is sure to please.
OFF THE SHOULDER
My favourite look this fall is OTS paired with a bralette, as I explained in this post. Translate that into a dress and you’ll be looking super cute! The rich jewel tone on this AE One Shoulder Boucle Sweater Dress is an eye-catcher. I can’t wait to add this one to my closet.
LOVE THE SLEEVE
Billowy, statement sleeves are hot this season and you’re sure to find them on all sorts of dresses. I don’t tend to go too crazy on a dress because they end up getting in my way. Know what I mean? This AE Henley Sweater Dress is clearly a popular choice and already sold out online but I’ll be sure to update you as soon as it’s back in stock!
HEAD OVER HEELS FOR HOODIES
It’s hard not to love a good hoodie… make it long enough to wear as a dress and I’m a happy camper! Since I’m not likely to wear this with bare legs and want the option to wear it over jeans, I tend to lean toward the basic black. The AE Soft & Sexy Plush Hoodie Dress delivers on the plush and can be easily dressed up for a day in the office. Pull your hair into a ponytail, throw on your favourite booties and you’re ready for a night with friends.
