By now, it should be clear how I feel about knitwear. Cardigans, pullovers, hats, and gloves. My favorite piece of knitwear, however, is the sweater dress. By far one of the most versatile pieces of the autumnal season, it can be worn alone with a great pair of boots, with tights when the brisk breeze turns to a crisp chill, and over leggings when the snow plows start to rumble through the streets. A slouchy, soft sweaterdress is the equivalent of an oversized boyfriend shirt. It’s comfortable, easy, and altogether chic. It also has the overwhelming effect of making you look completely cuddly and I cannot be held responsible if handsome strangers have the overwhelming urge to hug you when wearing one.
