Now that the weather is finally cool enough to wear multiple layers, it's time to bring out the ultimate autumnal outfit: the sweater dress. From date nights at a cozy wine bar to a day in a pumpkin patch, sweater dresses are just as cute as your summer styles—but a whole lot warmer.
If you're not sure where to start but know you want to shop, we found a half-dozen sweater dresses on Amazon that shoppers are positively obsessed with. Coming in all different styles and fabrics, from a slim-fit ribbed number to an oversized turtleneck (and plenty of waist ties), you'll find something that fits your style. Plus, can't you imagine an '80s Meg Ryan in these? To complete the look, add on knit leggings or tights and a leather jacket, or maybe something a bit warmer if you're going to be spending time outdoors.
