The best sweater dresses for women trending now
Sweater dresses are always my go to for Fall & Winter with ankle, knee high or over the knee boots depending on my mood. I love snuggling up in cute sweater dress outfits as cozy knit styles are so easy to throw on. Sweater dresses are still in style for 2023 as seen at Givenchy, Burberry and Chanel. They’re one of those classic, versatile wardrobe staples that are always in, it’s just the style and styling that changes. Knit dresses are just as good for running to the store as they are for work or going out just by changing your shoes and accessories. I find long sleeve and turtleneck womens sweater dresses a bit hot with a jacket and in some buildings so I also rounded up the best short sleeve, sleeveless and off the shoulder styles. Here’s what’s trending this season.

55 Best sweater dresses to wear this season
I rounded up my favorite cute sweater dresses for this season including short and long sweater dress styles as they’re the perfect transitional season piece. Expect a lot of black, white, blue, green and pink sweater dresses from me this season from sexy to work appropriate. Along with turtleneck sweater dresses that are anything but basic, lightweight to heavyweight knit sweater dress styles and trending off the shoulder styles.
Plus some button down styles that are super easy to put on like the stunning pink sweater dress (below). Button downs vs roll necks are much easier for an outfit change after work without messing up your hair and makeup. The monochromatic styling on this cute sweater dress outfit is perfect for Winter 2023.
12 Best sleeveless and short sleeve sweater dresses
I love a sleeveless cute sweater dress for Fall for layering. They’re so easy to throw on with a leather or denim jacket and flat boots for a casual look or a belt and high heel boots for a dressier look that’s warm enough but not so much that I overheat.

The knit dresses for 2023 are so much more interesting and flattering than last years. With cut outs, backless styles and colors that aren’t just black, white or beige. As well as some cool metallic knits which are trending.

The perfect transitional season styles or layering pieces to add to your wardrobe this season. I love sleeveless styles for not overheating and to layer with as often restaurants get too hot in long sleeve knits in the Winter. A lot of these stores also offer free shipping and returns in case it doesn’t work out for you.
From designer to luxe for less and sale finds, these are the styles in my wardrobe and favorites list this season.
43 Best long sleeve sweater dresses
Long sleeve sweater dresses are great for the cooler months and snowy days. For snuggling up on the couch, in front of the fire or for cold nights out with tights and knee-high boots. I tend to prefer lightweight styles that I can layer with than bulkier styles that you can easily overheat in. I want to look cute not sweaty!
I fell in love with the color of this Lovers + Friends blue balloon sleeves, turtleneck sweater dress as it makes a change from black and goes with my white boots. It’s also not too thick and bulky and the flared sleeves make it a bit different. It runs short but otherwise I find it runs true to size.
This white sweater dress is one of the coziest and warmest knit dresses I own and it was under $30. It’s sold out but there’s some great white mini dress alternatives here.
The ribbed, backless, pink long sleeve dress is right on trend this season as pink is a trending color for Winter 2023. It also comes in baby blue if pinks not your thing. This super cute sweater dress would be perfect for date night and is easy to dress down and keep as a casual dress or dress up with a belt and heels. It runs snug, so either order your normal size knowing it’s a very fitted bodycon or size up and belt it.
A black turtleneck sweater dress will always be a classic and this mini has the sexiest leg slit. It runs short but you could always wear it with leggings or tights.
Off the shoulder sweater dresses are still in for 2023 which are perfect for being a little sexy without showing a lot of skin and still being able to stay warm.
I tend to go for shorter length sweater dresses most of the time for the day as I can wear them bare legs or layer them over tights or leggings. This one runs really short which is great for us petite girls but will be more of a sweater than a dress if you’re over 5’5″. I love that the neckline’s a little looser for a turtleneck so that your makeup doesn’t get all over it!

These are the styles either already in my closet, on my wishlist or the designer ones I’m dreaming about this season.
The long sleeve sweater dress above runs slightly big but I love the looser fit for comfort. The new version for this year is a super cute pink.

Womens sweater dresses are such great layering pieces and such a comfortable Fall and Winter outfit choice so it depends a lot on the weather and where you’re going.
How to style sweater dresses in Fall/Autumn
In Fall I like to wear short sleeve styles on their own or with a leather jacket. To take the look from day to night a belt or changing from heels to flats goes a long way.
A short or long style goes with anything from high heels to ankle boots to knee high to over the knee boots for a night out.
How to style sweater dresses in Winter | Cute sweater outfits
In Winter I tend to wear my long sleeve sweater dresses with flat knee high boots for running around in the day. Then for the evening add tights and switch to longer, high heel knee high boots or thigh high boots which are a big trend for Fall Winter 2023.
I’m a fan of belts as I think they finish a look and create a better silhouette. Especially with tight ribbed styles as they can be hard to pull off and show every bump. A wide belt covers a little bit and distracts or work if I’m trying to create shape with an oversized style.
I love a belted white sweater dress with white boots for a look that’s brighter than black for grey days. You could also try this look with the metallic boots that are trending this season.
Most of the photos above are great for styling inspo. A lot of these knit dresses are Revolve Best Sellers and sell out fast but if you’re not in a rush you can sign up for a back in stock notice.
Are sweater dresses in style 2023
Yes! Womens sweater dresses are still in style for 2023. There were so many on the FW2223 runways seen at Givenchy, Burberry, Balenciaga, Ralph Lauren and Chanel.
Knit dresses are one of those classic, versatile wardrobe staples that are always in. It’s just the style and styling that changes from year to year. For 2023 look for styles not just in neutrals but in pink, red, blue and green. As well as for unique details that make them a little bit different.
How to avoid getting makeup on your turtleneck and roll neck sweaters
I love turtleneck and high neck styles especially for when my tans fading off and the ultra cold weather. As long as I remember to dress before doing my hair and makeup.
A little trick for preventing your foundation and powder from transferring onto your turtle neck is to spray your neck with a little non-sticky hairspray. It works better than setting spray for preventing your turtleneck from wearing more of your makeup than you are!
