One of fall’s hottest trends? Sweaters…with a twist. You may do a double take when you see wool ski sweaters, long a staple for the slopes, made into dresses for every day wear. These dresses are anything but ordinary, as they pop with color and personality.  Other unique sweater dresses will complement any body shape, so read on to explore this unique trend for fall and winter of 2012.

One company that’s are the forefront of the trend is United Colors of Benetton. With new knitting techniques, bold graphics, and unusual color combinations, these sweater dresses prove anything but ordinary. Check out their website to sign up for online shopping – which is coming soon!

Another company that jumps on trends but offers reasonable prices – Target.  For instance, for $35.00 you can purchase a Mossimo Women’s Dolman Sleeve Sweater dress in a wide variety of rich colors, from Night Magic blue to Spanish brown.  Depending on your mood, you can dress up this version with chunky jewelry, or be more casual with a flirty scarf.  The variations are endless – and fun.

If you are expecting, then Target’s Merona Maternity Long-Sleeve sweater dress might me a good addition to your wardrobe.  It’s not only trendy, and inexpensive, it will keep you (and baby) warm through the cold winter months.  The cowl-neck adds interest, and most women find it comfortable to wear.  Best of all, sweater dresses expand with ease, so you won’t have uncomfortable pulling across the shoulders.

Finally, Zara, always a trend setting company, offers a darling knitted dress with funnel neck in a delicious, gray/black open weave knit for only $90.00.  Although that may seem a bit pricey, the dress could flow seamlessly from day to night.  For day, wear black ankle boots and minimal jewelry, for night, add a sparkly clutch and sky-high black heels.  Add one of today’s hottest accessories, a faux fur stole in bright pink, and you’ll be the center of attention at any event.

This fall, try one of the season’s most versatile trends, the sweater dress.  There’s a style to fit any personality and body type.  Best of all, they keep you warm, while you look hot!
