My Style: It’s Time for Sweater Dress Weather!

Sharing is caring!

Listen. I love a great sweater dress. Even more so when I pair it with a killer pair of boots! When I was invited to play in a few fall looks from Kohl’s plus size fashion options, I knew that I would be in good hands! I mean, over this year, I have had my eyes opened to the options that they carry for my plus size curves from activewear to denim to designer collaborations! So when they asked me to fashion another look for fall, I was all over it!

I am just as surprised as you!) grey sweater dress which is both on trend for color and cute as can be! I loved the fit and the double diagonal splits that play up the hips (or creates this illusion, right? Because I have no hips)! Not only was this dress extremely comfortable, for as fitted as it looks, it was not overly warm- making this the perfect transitional dress to take me into the winter season, comfortably… I am not a fan of being uncomfortably warm!

Heyyyy boo. This is what I am thinking in my head. I feel amazingly segzy and confident in this dress! Underneath, I have on a light slip shaper from Spanx! For me, it helps me feels a bit more confident about a curve hugging dress!

But with sweater dresses, I feel like boots are an immediate pairing… right? I would also add my trusted leather moto jacket, for some extra attitude! But the versatility and flexibility of a sweater dress allows you to go from day to night seamlessly, or for me at least!

And to know that I can add Kohl’s plus size fashion to my list of places to shop and check for- Hello JLo!?! I know that I am going to be in good hands this fall!

So when you are working on building your fall wardrobe, take a second look at sweater dresses and at the plus size fashion and options at Kohl’s!

  1. You look fabulous – enough to make me want to run out to buy that dress!…but Kohls, at least mine, must be one of those stores that only sells the “good” plus size clothing online. I went today and the plus section was full of matronly clothes. The JLo line was straight size only in-store. 🙁 Reminded me of excitedly going there about 10 years or so ago when the JLo line first came out to find no plus sizes, and that was the last time I shopped there. Good to know it’s available online, but it’s still maddening not to be able to find and try on things in store like everyone else.

  2. I love pairing sweater dresses with boots of all lengths. I have to admit a soft spot for wearing my thigh high or over the knee boots with a sweater dress. Speaking of boots, Ashley Stewart has a really solid selection this year, especially in wide width and wide calf You might want to add them to your list of boot resources.

  3. Hi Marie: love this dress on you. Love the length too. Sweater dresses and matching tank and long cardigan sweaters have always been my favorite and I’m so happy they are in style again.

    I am wearing an amazing smoothing slip with a line called Ruby Ribbon! The fit is amazing! As a plus size fit model, I can tell you that the line fits beautifully and smooths amazingly.

    Thanks for showing me where to get this sweater dress. I can’t wait to order it!

  4. I agree with Kate Enko. The really cute plus size offerings from Kohls are online. But I love my J Lo maxi dress I bought last year and I’ve loved my Ralph Lauren Chaps items. I saw that their Vera Wang line has finally expanded into plus and I hope the Dana Buchman line expands to plus too! I love a great sweater dress too although I prefer more of an A line or skater shape as I don’t want it too clingy for the office. Just a personal preference…

  5. Well Marie I have adored sweater dresses from afar! Lol I just didn’t think they were made for plus-size women. As I read this post, I realized how many stores I’ve just avoided thinking I was too big to shop there. Kohls, Target, Macys.. Almost lost my mind when I went into Macy’s…last year for the first time. Wow!

    I’ve said it before but discovering bloggers like you and FabEllis have changed my life! Now I may just try a sweater dress! 🙂 you look gorgeous!
