Easy Outfit: an obvious way of wearing a sweater dress is to pair it with leggings. If your sweater dress is plain in color and has no embellishments, allow yourself shiny leather leggings or bright prints. The top and the bottom should balance each other out. Loose, oversized sweater dresses work best with tight leggings. As always make sure that colors are balanced as well, not just styles.

Length: there is no such a thing as a wrong length for a sweater dress. Long sweater dresses have the bohemian chic, knee-length sweater dresses are good everyday pieces, and short sweater dresses are great replacements of your flirty summer day dresses. Pair a short sweater dress with a pair of ankle booties for an attention-catching look.

Shoes: practically anything will work: ankle booties, knee-length boots, sneakers, heels, as long as they match the overall style of your outfit. Make sure to play with the lengths, but remember there are no concrete rules. Feel free to go for knee high boots with a short sweater dress!

Tights: frankly speaking, a sweater dress is not really a dress. If it is short, avoid matching it with tights, and rather wear leggings or skinny jeans.
