10 Elegant But Comfortable Sweater Dresses For Winter

One of the questions I get on my blog is how to look cute but be comfortable when winter rolls around. It’s something I struggled with for years. All I wanted to do every winter was pull on my joggers and my favorite jumper and slip into some ugg boots.

But as comfortable as that may still be, one must look elegant and stay warm for days out and in the workplace. One of my favorite ways to do this is by combining my two favorite things: sweaters and dresses.

You can definitely wear a sweater over a dress, but sweater dresses themselves are a wonderful way to look elegant without sacrificing warmth, especially paired with fleece lined leggings and tall riding boots.

My favorite types of sweater dresses are the ones which you can accessorize to make more elegant: vintage purses, long necklaces, and little dainty details. I recently purchased this corset sweater dress from Express which adds a beautiful vintage vibe to my outfit. I love how Celtic it is as well!
