If you’re a regular reader, you may know that I’m obsessed with I really like my sweater dresses. (Like really, a lot.) But I’m trying not to get stuck in the same sweater-dress-and-tall-boots rut. (Even though it is one of my favorite go-to outfits.) So I decided to challenge myself to try and mix it up a bit — exactly how many ways can I wear my favorite sweater dress? Answer: a lot. Here’s what I came up with…

1 Cashmere Turtleneck Dress, 5 Cute Outfits

1. Sweater Dress + Statement Boots

I have lots of “favorite boots” sitting in my closet, and a basic sweater dress is an easy way to be able to wear them. Funky patterns, over-the-knee boots or bright and colorful–they all work!(Add leggings or tights–or even fishnets–if you’re in a colder climate like me.)

LEFT leggings | snake print boots

MIDDLE fishnets | over-the-knee boots

RIGHT leggings | red boots (similar)


2. Sweater Dress Layered Over a Skirt

I kind of “discovered” this on accident when I was trying to come up with new ways to style a tunic top. I love how a skirt (or even a slip or midi dress) lengthens the dress just a bit and adds some fun texture. This would work especially well for taller girls who find that mini dresses are usually too short for them. (Cam!?)

base outfit: sweater dress | tights | boots

LEFT lace skirt (currently sold out, but a slip like this or this would work great!)

MIDDLE ruffle skirt (similar)

RIGHT leather skirt (similar here)


3. Sweater Dress Over Jeans

I know this look isn’t for everyone, but I think sweater dresses look pretty darn cute over denim. Plus, layering over jeans adds some much-needed extra warmth in the winter. I liked the three styles I tried on, but I don’t know if I’d like boyfriend jeans with it…hmm. I’ll have to give that one a try and report back.

MIDDLE flare jeans | boots (on sale)

RIGHT skinny jeans (in classic, petite and tall sizes) | leopard booties


4. …Or Sweater Dress Over Pants

I mean, pants were an obvious next step after jeans, right? I was surprised by how much I liked this look, too. Something kind of different but not too extreme and still perfect for winter (with the exception of the heels, I suppose…).

LEFT faux leather pants (on sale and in regular, short, long and petite sizes) | boots

MIDDLE cord flares | boots

RIGHT pink pants (similar and on sale) | heels


5. Sweater Dress + Funky Accessories

Of course, you can always just wear the sweater dress alone–my go-to way is the aforementioned sweater-dress-and-tall-boots combo–but adding tights and booties, and even a fun belt, is an easy way to switch it up!
