This Anti-Trend Wardrobe Staple Has Remained in My Closet for Years

Over the years, my closet has gone through dozens of clean-outs. I care a lot about each item of clothing that I own, so I’ve gone back and forth time and time again about every piece that I end up donating. Lately, I’ve been in limbo about items like puff-sleeve dresses that take up way too much space or the 17th pair of jeans I own that I really don’t need. There are very few categories that I can name that don’t require this annual debate, but one of them that I can’t neglect to mention is the sweaterdress. The high-quality sweaterdresses I’ve purchased have remained in my closet since my high school graduation. This timeless staple is worth its weight in gold.

With that in mind, as I prepare my wardrobe for colder weather, I know I can’t go wrong by buying yet another sweaterdress so thus begins my journey. I’ve scoured the market and I’m convinced that these 29 dresses are the absolute best. So, happy shopping!

We love to see a deal.

Anything with a belt looks so chic.

I am convinced that I need this one.

I thought this was designer.

Anything with cutouts is right up my alley.

Color blocking is having a moment right now.

I’ll take as many stripes as I can get.

How good is this?

It’s the polo for me.

I can already picture this dress paired with knee-high boots.

A look that can be divided into two.

I tried to hold myself back from saying, “It has pockets,” but here we are.

I’ll start wearing this now, but it’s perfect for the holidays.

Maxi hemlines have won us over.

Just look at the seaming here.

I’ve never purchased a sweaterdress faster and I have no regrets.

If you prefer something more fitted, you can’t go wrong with this colorway.

Think pink.

An elevated take on stripes.

I can just tell that this fabric is so luxe.

This is how you transition your love for tube tops into fall.

Everything about this is perfection.

Sometimes wearing your sweaterdress as a very long top is the move.

All dressed up.

Straight out of my teddy-bear dreams.

I’m all about this colorway.

This is everything.

Electric lemon.

An outfit worth repeating.
