When you think about fall clothing, sweater dresses may not be the first item that comes to mind—but it should. Not only are they soft and cozy, but they also look polished and chic during a time of the year when the weather makes it hard to achieve that. You can throw them on alone, or use them as your base to build the rest of your outfit around, layering long knits and coats on top. Sweater dresses will keep you warm underneath whatever you choose to wear over them, but feel dressed up once you get inside and remove your heavier layers.
For fall 2019, it’s specifically ribbed sweater dresses that everyone is craving. They provide a cool texture and contrast to anything they’re paired with and are ultra-flattering against the body as vertical stripes always make you appear taller. This dress is also beyond easy to style—just add boots and throw a coat over your shoulders and your outfit is set. You can also cinch a belt around your waist to define your silhouette more if you like.

Whether your ribbed sweater dress is mini, midi, or maxi, it’s the perfect fall staple. Brands across the board are offering chic sweater dress styles right now, from affordable retailers like H&M and Topshop to luxury labels like Helmut Lang and Isabel Marant. Regardless of how much you spend, the ribbed texture makes this style look elevated and expensive. It also makes the dress pop against other textures like leather and mock croc.
