Sweater over dress outfits: how to wear a sweater over dress
Sweater dresses are great for fall and winter, as they add warmth to your outfit. If you’re wearing a sleeveless dress, any sweater or cardigan can add cute layers and dimensions to your outfit while also keeping you warm.
There are a few ways to style sweaters over dresses and we will get into showing a few ways to style them as well as outfit inspo pictures.

- To add texture.

Sweater over dress without a belt
Of course there are ways to wear a sweater over dress that does not involve a belt. The easiest way to do that is just put the sweater on over your dress. If you aren’t using a belt I suggest wearing a cropped sweater over dress to create the illusion of your waist. If you wear an oversized sweater without tying it or wearing a belt, your outfit might turn out looking too frumpy and not well put together. Which of course we want to look put together and effortlessly chic!

Tying sweater over a dress
A cute way to wear a sweater over dress is tying a knot a the bottom of the sweater. This is a great way to wear the sweater if it is too long. Tying it at the waist and adding the knot will proportion your waist and give your body a nice silhouette. You can leave the knot visible or tuck it under to hide it. I personally love the visible knot in the front!
If the sweater is too difficult to tie a knot in it, just use a hair tie and make the knot with it. It will give the same exact fit as if you were tying it with the sweater itself.

Sweater over dress with belt
You can wear a belt over the sweater dress. All you have to do is tuck the sweater into the belt and pull out a little. You can either use a thin belt and use an oversized sweater to cover up the belt if you do not want it to show. Or you can show off your cute belt accessory by not covering it with the sweater.
Types of sweaters to wear with dresses
Cropped sweaters are perfect for wearing over a dress because they tend to be fitted and will look great when paired with the right dress. With the less fabric of the cropped sweater you will have a more put together outfit.

Oversized sweaters are also great because they can easily be worn over dresses without looking too bulky. A good dress choice for an oversized sweater is one made of thin fabric such as satin or silk. This way the oversized sweater will be balanced out with the thinner fabric of the dress.
