For the record: I love fashion. Like, really, really love it. But right now, all I want to do is layer myself up in old sweats, pilly sweaters, and the hand-knit (and hideous) woolen socks my aunt made for me five Christmases ago — anything that’s proven it has what it takes to keep me warm.
And it’s the same scenario every year. The second winter turns truly frigid, I swap any sense of personal style for total practicality.
This year, though, things are shaping up to be a little different on the cold-weather fashion front — and a whole lot more stylish. That's because designers have done us all a favor and circled the spotlight back to the one garment that’s just as gorgeous as it is warm and cozy: the sweater dress.
There’s no shortage of options either. Just check out the 10 ahead as proof of how very, very versatile the style is. One day you could cocoon yourself head-to-toe in the softest, coziest turtleneck sweaterdress imaginable. The next you could slip into a super-sexy shoulder-baring take (which, yes, I know kind of defeats the purpose of a sweater dress, but who cares when you look that good?). Those, and each of the other looks ahead, will help you stay warm all winter without looking like you've given up.
