    Morgan Creek Entertainment

    The honest-to-beans best part is that we get to dress like a bunch of booted and sweater-dressed-up baddies. We've already gone down the rabbit hole to snag the best boots for fall (new boot goofin' yet?). Now, it's time to get your collection of sweater dresses popping since they're the perfect wear-anywhere style. Whether you're heading to work, school, a date, or just chilling around your house — a sweater dress can suit every single setting and occasion. They're also super easy to mix and match with the rest of your closet. Peep the dress picks ahead.

    1. A leopard print oversized sweater dress you'll be able to wear in a million different ways between now and winter! No seriously. It's long enough to be a dress but can be thrown on top of jeans and boots on chilly fall days. When the fall temperatures are a bit higher, you can slip into it with shorts!

    Promising review: "I really love this sweater! The fit is oversized and I love how much you can do with that! It’ll fall low enough to be worn with leggings, can be tucked into jeans, or worn as a dress! I’m currently 20 weeks pregnant and it’ll definitely last my entire pregnancy. It’s super comfy and the material is soft as well!" —Kennedy Steffes

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99 (available in sizes S-XL and 11 colors).

    2. A tunic sweater dress with wooden buttons trailing the sides that you're probably going to need in every single color.


    Promising review: "This tunic is incredibly soft and comfortable! I love the length since it's not to short and not too long. It's also not too flowy and not too tight. I can wear this to so many different things. The decorative buttons are nice and the seam is stitched underneath so there is no gaping. The neckline is nice and I love the purple color. I will probably order some more colors too!" —Merissa Colbert

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 15 colors).

    3. A cashmere and wool-blend sweater dress that'll scream "COZY!" The sweater dress is made specifically with two-ply cashmere that's meant to prevent pilling. It also features two front pockets that are perfectly placed to keep your hands from freezing off this fall and winter.


    FYI: Double-check the length of this dress. Depending on how tall you are and the size you order, you may also be able to wear this dress as a top with leggings and jeans! And lots of reviewers noted how much they like multiple sweaters from this particular seller.

    Promising review: "The sweater is very soft and cozy. It arrived on the second day. I loved it and ordered two more colors to wear at home and when I'm out and about. They're perfect for winter. Thank you!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and 17 colors).

    4. A sleeveless ribbed sweater dress to come in handy on in-between weather days when it's not too cold or hot. The coolest part about this sleeveless find is that the stretchy fabric allows you to layer it over a long-sleeved shirt when you want to look cute and not freeze in the process.

    Forever 21

    FYI, Forever 21 and reviewers noted that this dress runs small so order one size up to get the best fit.

    Promising review: "This dress is! It's made of nice, quality material and not thin like some sweater dresses. The dress maintains its shape after washing. I get so many compliments on these dresses (I have every color except one). You can dress the style up with a suit jacket for work or go casual with a jean jacket or cardigan! Get this dress so you can go be great!" —Lekeisha V.

    Get it from Forever 21 in straight sizes for $22.40 (available in sizes S-L and seven colors) and in plus sizes for $24.50 (available in sizes 1X-3X and five colors).

    5. An oversized cardigan-style sweater dress – it's like wearing a regular dress and outerwear all at once.


    Get it from ASOS for $45 (available in sizes US 00-US 12 PLUS you can grab it in pink, white, gray, or camel; the camel color is a petite size.)

    6. A bell-sleeved and self-tie sweater dress that's obviously bound to be your new going-out dress. Per the reviews, people wore this dress for bridal, birthday, and girls' night out parties. The frock boasts a hemline that looks long enough to wear to work but short enough to wear as a longer blouse with jeans and leggings.


    Promising review: "This is my new favorite item in my entire wardrobe! The material is super comfortable and not too thin. I feel like I’m wearing a light sweatshirt but look like I’m rocking a super cute dress! It goes great with tights and booties or leggings and boots. I just ordered it in another color." —PW

    Get it from Amazon for $6.84+ (available in sizes S-XL and 11 colors).

    7. A loose-fitting striped sweater dress that'll help you pull off a '90s high school look to perfection. Really, all you'll need is a pair of Doc Marten's and a scrunchie in your hair to look like you stepped off the set of your favorite throwback sitcom — in a totally cool way, of course.

    Promising review: "It fits so well that I am back to buy my fourth sweater dress. It comes right below the knee and hugs your body... I plan to wear boots and a long sweater jacket over it but the dress can be worn all on its own. The material is of very good quality since it's not too thick but not thin either. When you pull the dress out of the package don't be alarmed, it looks small, long and skinny but when you put it on, it has a lot of stretch to it. Just hand or delicate wash to keep them looking new." —MeliMel

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $32 (available in sizes S-L).

    16. A mermaid-style sweater dress that's so cute, you're going to get tired of answering questions about where the heck you found it! Several reviewers raved about how stretchy this baby is.


    Promising review: "This dress is sexy but I can still wear it to the office. I purchased this dress in a larger size so it wouldn’t cling too much to my body... I initially purchased this for a Christmas party at the office. It's cute. I have machine-washed it several times. I usually hang it up to dry but my hubby put it in the dryer by mistake. It didn’t shrink so I’m happy about that. The material isn't irritating." —Amanda

    Promising review: "I love this dress. It's too warm to actually wear it right now but trying it on, it fit like a glove. I have to talk about how soft it is. The material is so cozy and it seems like very high quality. The dress also seems as well made, if not better, than my designer clothes that cost a lot more. I love the pleated skirt and tie-around detail; it's different but classy and attractive. Once winter hits I just know this is going to be a go-to piece." —S. Vandy
