I love a good sweater. I’m not super fond of wearing a jacket unless I’m going to be outside for a while (like apple picking) or it’s really cold. I find a sweater keeps me toasty-warm but not too hot. But even cuter than a sweater is a great sweater dress.
We’ve combed the internet and gathered up several of our favorite sweater dresses that are totally on trend for fall/winter 23-24 – and beyond.
One of the great things about a sweater dress is that it tends to be fairly classic and timeless. That means you can splurge and head back to your fab sweater dress year after year. And one of the greatest ways to accessorize your sweater dress is with a great pair of boots.
Fab Sweater Dresses that Should Be in Your Closet

Sweater Knit Wrap Dress
How great is this mini sweater dress? A great cut that is so flattering to most body types. Even better, this style looks so much more expensive than it is. This sweater is also available in 3 fabulous shades. It’s from Lulu’s, so while it’s not an investment piece that will last forever, this should carry over for a couple seasons, and it’s not a budget buster either.
A-Line Button Side Sweater Dress
This dress is so cute, and it’s not too much for really casual situations. The A-line styling is so flattering to a wide array of body types, too. It could easily be paired with tights and sneakers for a teacher, or pair it with some boots for a little more dressed up feel. It’s on Amazon, and has prime shipping, so you could get this in practically no time. Available in a huge assortment of colors, too. Oh, and did I mention it also has pockets??
Ruffled Wrap Sweater Dress
This ruffled wrap sweater dress has a little extra design flair, due to the ruffle edges. It also has a sexy peekaboo back that shows a little skin, but not too much. So cute, and oh so flattering. It’s available in burgundy, heather grey, and a fab pine green.
Leopard Print Sweater Sheath Dress
How fun is this leopard print sweater dress? The fun colors and bold animal print style add some real whimsy to what could be just another animal print dress. This sweater dress almost looks like a high end designer without the hefty pricetag that accompanies it. Plus, it’s from Kohl’s, so you know it’s good quality and a pocketbook friendly price. Available in 5 fab colorways.
Off Shoulder Batwing Bodycon Sweater Mini Dress
This dress is for when you want to be noticed. It’s sexy, yet elegant, and looks so much more expensive than it is. The top can be worn off the shoulder, or styled to be more of a wide boatneck type of neckline. Since this is a bodycon type of dress, note that it will be slightly clingy to the bottom half, but isn’t skin-tight. Available in 15 different colors, including a really great bright pink and a stunning dark teal.
Short Sleeve Cable Knit Sweater Dress
Look, not everyone lives in a cold climate, right? That doesn’t mean they don’t want in on the trend. This short sleeve cable knit sweater dress is a great basic, whether you live in a warmer climate, or as a layering piece. The cable knit pattern helps give the illusion of curves and combats that straight up and down column that a lot of sweater dresses have. This would look great paired with a cardigan, a blazer, or even some fab jewelry and maybe a chain belt.
Chilly Forecast Midi Sweater Dress
Simply put, I adore Fair Isle and Intarsia knitting. Sometimes, though, it can look a little ski lodge-y. Sometimes, that’s just not the look you’re going for. The Chilly Forecast dress is able to take fair isle knitting and make it totally modern, sophisticated, and dare I say – a little edgy. This is a great plus sized option for a Fair Isle Sweater Dress.
V-Neck Cable Knit Swing Dress
This swingy sweater dress has a fun and flirty attitude, and is oh so wearable. It hugs in the right places and flares out at the bottom to give a lit of movement. This sweater is definitely for colder climates, but could be fab if your office is on the frigid side. Available in a great hunter green shade and a neutral beigey-tan shade.
Fit and Flare Sweater Dress
I love everything about this fit and flare sweater dress! I like the way it falls from the bust, but isn’t an empire waist. The detailing around the waist and on the skirt is giving me Rockettes and Nutcracker vibes for some reason. It’s so playful, and absolutely flattering on most body shapes. This is available in 5 fab colorways.
Glitter Sweater Dress
Ummm…hello! Everyone loves some sparkle in their wardrobe, and this fabulous swingy glitter sweater dress is perfect. Dress it up, dress it down, you’ll love it either way. This is a plus sized dress, but the sizing starts at a 10, so it should fit most people. This dress is shown in red and black, but there’s also a silver/black color combo.
Nautical Sweater Dress
This sweater dress, from DKNY, has a little touch of that nautical feel, especially with the decorative gold buttons where the pockets would be. This sweater is definitely for colder climates, but could be fab if your office is on the frigid side. This sweater dress is a timeless classic that you can wear year after year, too.
Long Sleeve Argyle Sequinned Mini Sweater Dress
This cute sweater dress with sequin argyle detailing is great as a mini dress, but could easily be worn as a tunic top as well. I’d wear it as a top or with heavy tights, but if you have the courage to wear this as a dress, go on with ya bad self! However you choose to wear this, argyle sweater dresses are always on trend, and this one has that perfect mix of schoolgirl vibes crossed with preppy grown up glam. I’d pair with some skinny jeans or jeggings for a great daytime look or a casual date night.
Houndstooth Sweater Dress
Houndstooth is one of those timeless fall trends, much like a sweater dress. It only makes sense to combine the two into a fab dress like this Houndstooth Sweater Dress. And it’s under $50! You can’t hardly beat that. Available in sizes from XS to XXL, too.
