Sweater Dresses & The Style Six

I'm taking a break from my favorite fall season style of puff sleeves today to talk about another fun trend that I'm seeing these days: sweater dresses.  Have you noticed them, too?

It is finally "sweatah weathah" here in Louisiana and that makes me oh-so happy! 

Recently, I was transitioning my closet (which has become like a three weekend project for me! 😝), and found a black sweater dress that I bought probably five or six years ago and hadn't worn in several winter seasons. For that reason, I was tempted to toss it, but there are some pieces that are just timeless and so I decided to keep it and promised myself that I was going to wear it this year. 

Today I'm sharing some pinterest inspiration for this warm and cozy style. One of the reasons I love these dresses so much is because they are so versatile for the office. And they look good with boots! I especially love a good turtleneck or cowl neck, too.

I recently bought this Time and Tru sweater dress in gray from Walmart for less than $20 bucks and it is so comfortable, y'all. It was a little longer on me, but I plan to blouse it with a wide belt. #bringbackthe80s  Also, it runs a little big, so you might have to size down, but for the price, this sweater dress just can't be beat if you like this style as much as I do.

Hi there, I'm Laura, I'm the happiest wife, the loudest cheer mom, and the craziest girlfriend you'all ever have, I'm a Southern Belle living in a Southern world!


  1. I am not really one to wear dresses but I do have two sweater dresses; I just love them! They are so comfy and cute. I love that white cable knit one shown above.

  2. These are great inspiration pics! I hope you are able to wear your dress this season! :) I used to have a few knit dresses like this but realised they were so rarely worn here, it's just not always cold enough! I tend to layer lighter pieces than go for a thick cosy piece like this, I feel I get more wear from my pieces that way!

    Thanks for the link up :)

    Hope that you are having a wonderful week :)

  3. I am loving the sweater dress trend and would love to wear one. It needs to get cooler here, I swear, 84 degrees and 100% humidity has me unhappy! Can't wait to see you wear yours!

  4. Laura, you make me smile from the inside out. First of all, I chuckled when I read that you were taking a break from your puffy sleeved sweater. But I had to say "sweatah weathah" out loud a few times, just the way those hilarious comics did on SNL. Anyway, the inspiration photos from Pinterest are perfection. I might need to check out your $20 find!

  5. I used to wear sweater dresses all the time and I’m glad they’re back! You much cute inspiration. When I saw that first one on the Bloglovin feed, I was like who is that pretty girl, lol. Have a GREAT DAY BEAUTIFUL!

  6. Ooh, I love sweater dresses although I don't wear them often because I find them a bit less than flattering on my body. You shared some really cute inspiration though! Love it!


  7. I've legit been stalking all the sweater dresses and trying to decide if I need one.

  8. Yes and I am loving the sweater dress look! So fun!

  9. I think we're the same age... so you remember sweater dresses well too. I used to wear them all in high school. What goes around, comes around

  10. I love sweater dresses, and bought my first one at Target. It's adorable. Can't wait to see you model yours. XOXO
