Friday Finds: Sweater Dresses

If you love curling up in a cozy sweater but hate to give up your dresses as the weather cools, you'll be happy to hear that sweater dresses are huge for fall. Since we're having an Indian summer here in the Northeast, it's hard to know what fall trends will really pick up, but sweater dresses were all over the runways this spring, as designers fell in love with knits again.

I think sweater dresses are great because they're so versatile. The ones with the most classic styling can be worn to work with the right accessories, while lighter-weight dresses are great for layering. Staying warm and comfortable without sacrificing style is a difficult task for the colder months, but sweater dresses provide a happy medium. Here are a few of my favorites:

Banana Republic Belted Cowl Dress, $98

Susina Smocked Sweater Dress, from Nordstrom, $48

Semantiks Sweater Dress, from Nordstrom, $78

Calvin Klein Belted Sweater Dress, from Nordstrom, $118

Kenneth Cole Reaction Puff-Sleeve Sweater Dress, from Macy's, $119

Calvin Klein Jeans Dolman-Sleeve Sweater Dress, from Macy's, $89.50

I love sweater knits, and I just bought a sweater dress two weeks ago that looked a bit like the one in the first picture but in magenta. I wore that with an oversized chunky shawl-collar cardigan on top because the sweater dress was a fine knit.
