Must Haves: 17 Warm & Cozy Sweater Dresses

On Tuesday, the high in New York City is going to be 12 degrees. I know some of you live in the midwest and that’s all normal and good for you, but for me, 12 degrees is CRAZY INSANE COLD. Like, that ain’t right. If I could, I would wear a snowsuit all day, but I’ve found all that excess puffiness inhibits my ability to type. Instead, I shall layer a warm sweater dress over my coziest leggings and boots and pray Mother Nature gets her shit together soon.

Sweater dresses are awesome because they are all the warmth of a sweater, BUT LONGER, and all the cuteness of a dress, BUT WARMER, perfect for layering over tights or jeans/leggings. You really need one in your closet for these godawful winter months. Here are 17 to consider.

Must Haves: All About Overall Dresses

Let’s face it. We’re not all Alexa Chungs who can wear skintight overalls and look adorable and comfortable doing it. The overalls trend is not for everyone, but it can be — if you’re willing to be a bit creative about it. I’m not going to try straight up overalls, but an overall dress? That’s my style. After the jump, nine cute overall dresses you can wear layered over button-ups, blouses or just a bra-let, if you want.

Eat your heart out Mr. Big! A California man named Paul Brockman has trounced even your most extravagant romantic gestures by buying his wife, Margot, 55,000 dresses over the course of their 56-year marriage, enough to fill a large warehouse. The decades-long shopping spree began when the couple started going ballroom dancing, and Paul insisted Margot have a brand new dress to wear to each of their weekly dances. Margot didn’t like shopping, so Paul would buy her new dresses before and after work at his construction job. By 1988, Margot’s dress collection totaled 25,000. Today it’s 55,000. Crazy, right? But the craziest part of this story is that Margot didn’t even want the dresses, and Paul has actually been buying them in secret and storing them in shipping containers for years. Whaaaaaaat?!?!

What To Wear On A Girls’ Night Out

What To Wear On A Girls' Night Out

Hey, not everything is about getting a date. Sometimes you just want to hang with your best lady friends. My best friends and I are terrible at scheduling hang time — we’ll spend an entire huge email chain trying to pick a night that everyone’s free, and then somebody will suddenly remember that they promised to go to their uncle’s best friend’s wedding (looking at you Erin!). So if you’re lucky enough to have some non-flaky friends and can get together, you don’t want to have to worry about your outfit. Thankfully, we’ve chosen for girls’ night looks that’ll keep you looking cute — no matter whether you and your friends are the sip-wine-quietly-at-home types or the up-til-the-wee-hours-raging kind.

“I will be a reluctant bridesmaid in a family member’s wedding next month. The bride is having us wear silver evening shoes, either sandals or open-toe pumps, with this dusty purple (‘wisteria,’ hello) gown. Now, buying silver shoes on a budget is pretty much a one-way ticket to trashy town, but I refuse to spend over $200 on a pair of shoes that I’ll probably never wear again. Can you help me find a pair of affordable silver open-toe shoes that aren’t a death sentence for my already-compromised fashion sense?” — Sulking About Silver

Ah, the grin-and-bear-it bridesmaid. We’ve all been there, and some fare worse than others. Consider yourself fortunate: that dress is actually pretty alright! Of course, it’s probably made of uber-flammable taffeta or some shit, so be careful should you find yourself inebriated and in a close proximity to candles, which you undoubtedly will.

Must Haves: 10 Delightful Drawstring-Waist Dresses

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the drawstring-waist dress is the most universally flattering of all the dresses in all the land. There’s no body type that doesn’t stand to benefit from a cinch, and most importantly, it skims over the issue of what I like to call “barbecue belly” in the summertime without the am I pregnant? effect of an empire waist. The style is also well-suited to the vertically challenged like myself — a drawstring means that you can pull a couple of inches of fabric out from the waist to make a dress, you know, shorter. Check out these 10 summery drawstring-waist dresses, from mini to maxi and everything in between…
