As someone who likes to look put-together while also feeling like I’m still snuggled up in PJs, sweater dresses have become a wardrobe essential. I can layer them underneath a coat or over thinner tees and like that they cover my tush for a more modest look than a tunic-length top when paired with leggings or tights.
If you want to add a sweater dress to your own rotation, these 10 top-rated options will keep you warm and stylish for as long as the chilly weather hangs around. Ranging in silhouettes from slouchy to cinched, there's a dress for every body shape and size.
