CLASSIC SHIFT: If you prefer basic sweater dresses but want an update from last season, seek out stylish extras like cowl necks, dolman sleeves or interesting belting. The Cowlneck Sweater Dress at Banana Republic ($98) features a cascading neckline, oversized top and drop-waist silhouette that stays cozy while adding visual appeal.
PRINT PERFECT: Just because it's a sweater doesn't mean it can't have some pattern. The Intarsia Sweater Maxi Dress ($78) at Arden B. is a great example of how to incorporate interesting prints, and the maxi length looks gorgeous and warm with tall boots.
BLOCK OUT: Something about the sharpness of color blocking really takes a sweater dress to a whole new level. The Lovisa Sweater Dress by Diane von Furstenberg ($298) at Nordstrom features a beautifully blocked mini skirt that transitions easily into rich, dark tights and booties.
KNIT PICK: Sweaters and structure don't normally co-exist, but look out when they do! The BCBGMAXAZRIA Striped Sweater Dress ($278) at Bloomingdale's has a flattering stripe on the skirt and the top with a cute, contrasting oversized collar.
