Elegant to casual cute white sweater dresses to cozy up in this season
White sweater dresses always look so fresh and crisp. I love a bright white or even cream sweater dress, with a hefty dose of setting spray to prevent makeup getting all over them. Especially when it comes to white turtleneck and roll neck sweater dresses! As much as I love bright colors and rich jewel tones for cold weather seasons, solid white is a classic sweater dress color that will never go out of style and this years selection seems more extensive and better than ever. From cute and casual day wear to elegant work appropriate styles to sexy body hugging and dressier looks. Here’s the best white sweaters including sexier fitted styles, oversized sweater dresses, short and long sleeve white sweater dresses for a fresh look this season.

I got this ivory/slightly off white Free People ottoman slouchy tunic sweater dress last year in pink and loved it’s comfy fit so much I got it this year in ivory. It comes in a few colors if pink or white aren’t for you. It runs short so you might need to wear it with leggings or tights if you’re taller.
If you’re looking for something more versatile a cardigan sweater dress is a great option as it can be worn buttoned and belted or open as a duster coat. This off white sweater dress is another style I loved so much that I got the pink version too. It’s also pretty light weight, making it the perfect layering piece.
For a super warm and cozy outfit, this long sleeve mini dress is a slightly fuzzy material and very body hugging. I’m 5’2″ so it looks a lot shorter on the model on their website but I kind of like it a bit longer for more coverage in the Winter. Another bonus was that it didn’t make my hair go static!
Mini White Sweater Dress With Pearl Buttons
This chic cap sleeve mini dress is on sale and would work just as well for the office as for a night out. The lighter weight fabric is perfect for Fall or Spring. If it’s a little see-through, layer it over a slip skirt or slip dress.
If you prefer matching 2 piece sets, it also comes as a crop cardigan and matching skirt set in both ivory and pink. I find the top runs small so you might want to size up.

Long Sleeve Tunic Mini Dress
This slouchier mini white turtleneck sweater dress means less chance of getting your makeup all over it! It’s one of those versatile styles that you can wear as a mini dress or tunic sweater over leggings or tights like I’ve been doing on colder days.
I tend to rotate between sleeveless and long sleeve dresses depending on how much I’m going to be inside vs outside.

If you’re wanting a style you can wear into Spring, go for a sleeveless or button up style you can layer a long sleeve top or sweater under or jacket over.
