When it's cold outside, we just want to stay in, cuddle up by the fire, and sip hot chocolate. It's too bad we have to go on with our lives (and our work, studies, and errands) instead. We're forced to break away from our winter-wonderland fantasies and face the elements. If only there were a way to take that snuggled-up-at-home feeling out into the world with us...
The answer to our lazy-day prayers comes in the form of the sweaterdress. By no means revolutionary, the knit dress is underrated: It's basically a blanket you can wear out of the house while still being considered fashionable. It's incredibly versatile to boot. On warmer days, you can wear it with tights and ankle boots; when the vortex sets in, you can layer it over a skirt, and/or pants, and/or even another dress for some extra protection against the wind chill. Ahead, we found 30 options that will make this winter a little more bearable. Here's to keeping the cozy alive.
