I’ve always been one to choose a dress over any other type of ensemble, even during winter. But, admittedly, that gets a bit tricky… even in Florida! That’s why I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect sweater dress, one that’s classic and well-fitting, for months. And surprisingly, it’s been tricky to find just the one in terms of fit (most important!), color, and price point.

Until… drumroll please… this perfect sweater dress! Leave it to Nordstrom to have the best selection of dresses for any and every occasion. It’s always my go-to destination when I have something specific in mind, like a classic sweater dress. (Oh, and don’t forget Nordstrom always offers free shipping and returns, which makes the hunt oh-so-easy!)

First off, this sweater dress is fabulous in terms of quality. Soft and heavy, and oh so cozy to bundle up in. I’m also in love with the color options. Between ivory, grey and this perfect tan, you can’t go wrong! And did I mention it’s under $100?

The biggest selling factor for me was the fit. I’ve tried so many sweater dresses, and can’t tell you how many I found lacking. Most were either way too baggy or way too tight… two looks I’ve been wanting to avoid. This style hits the perfect balance between relaxed and flattering, and I couldn’t be happier.

I know this is a dress I’ll have for years, because there are simply so many ways to style it. I put together three fun combinations to recreate with your own sweater dress. Let me know which is your favorite in the comments below!
