Our winters have been pretty unpredictable in the last few years from continuous heavy snowstorms one year to consecutive warm days the next. And as the warmer weather rolls around, we’re all eager to switch our thicker knits for lighter, more casual garments.
But lets not jump the gun here. With the right look, those much adorned sweater dresses can still be given a lot of love and attention well into the spring and even the summer. Here are 4 looks to make sweater dresses the perfect transitional and practical piece well into the spring and summer.
Keep it Simple

By this I mean wearing a sweater dress with without leggings, thick scarves, or layering it with a shirt. Spring is all about keeping it casual, breezy, and fun. So if you want to wear your sweater dress well into the spring, try not to bundle yourself up as if it’s still winter season. I recommend wearing a sweater dress as-is with a pair of heels or boots, a few accessories such as bangles and statement necklaces, and a trendy hand clutch.
Add a Bit of Flare
Not all sweater dresses are created equal. They don’t necessarily have to be boxy or penciled styles. Add a bit of flare to your sweater dress for a more feminine and spring-like look. I personally love fit & flare dresses, especially when they are cable knit.
Show a Little Shoulder
I’m a huge fan of cold or open shoulder anything. Interestingly, these styles are a little hard to come by which is really unfortunate. If you’ve got great shoulders, show them off with a sexy, hip hugging sweater dress. If you ever get chilly wearing one of these, you can always wrap a scarf or a sweater around your shoulders.
Sweater dresses aren’t always about heavy and cable knits. One of my favorite trends is the preppy look – The striped neckline and/or striped sleeves. I love this look because you can dress it up with a pair of high heels or heeled gladiator sandals, or dress down with a pair of converse.
Do you have a sweater dress style you’re dying to wear in the spring? Share your trends, I would love to hear them!
