There’s a new must-have dress style that’s been popping up all over our Instagram feeds and on best-seller lists. It’s both supremely cozy and totally on-trend. We’re talking about the sweater dress. Yes, the simple knit frock is shaping up to be the number one dress trend of fall 2020 and we have to say, we’re pretty darn pleased about it. Beyond being incredibly comfy, sweater dresses look equally stylish with sneakers, heels and either tall or ankle boots. You can dress them up for date night with some suede thigh-high boots and some statement earrings or go casual for a weekend at home with Keds and a colorful scarf to tie around your ponytail.

Below, 16 of the most flattering, most comfortable sweater dresses to toss on this autumn.

1. The Great The Pleat Sleeve Dress

We came for the super-soft cotton knit but stayed for those gorgeous balloon sleeves.

Buy it ($195)

Available in sizes 0 to 3 (XS to L)

2. Vero Moda Simone Long Blouson-Sleeve Sweater Dress

The biggest benefit of a fitted sweater dress? It allows you to show off your curves while the thicker fabric smoothes out your silhouette, hiding any lumps or bumps you’d rather not put on display. And this affordable option does it all in a fall-approved shade of mustard.

Buy it ($65)

Available in sizes XS to XL

3. Eloquii Stripe Cardigan Long-Sleeve Sweater Dress

Get double the use out of this cozy knit by buttoning it up as a dress or leaving it open over a T-shirt and jeans, just like a traditional sweater.

Buy it ($100; $69)

Available in sizes 18W to 28W

4. L’Academie Milan Maxi Sweater Dress

We just can’t get over the simple elegance of this cream-colored beauty. All you need is a thin belt and some minimalist flats (or sleek heels) and you’re good to go.

Buy it ($198)

Available in sizes XXS to XL

5. Robbie Bee Cowlneck Knit Sweater Dress

Yes, sweater dresses absolutely can (and should) have pockets. Even better if they also have an adjustable cowl neck, so you can switch up your look on the fly.

Buy it ($89)

Available in sizes 1X to 3X

6. Nicholas Katya Dress

Exaggerated collars are majorly trending right now, so why not combine disco-era lapels with incredibly soft cotton-wool? Don’t worry, the western belt and leg slit (that hits just above the knee) help keep this knit dress from looking too ‘70s.

Buy it ($395)

Available in sizes XS to L

7. ASOS tie-waist midi dress

This one features vertical ribbing, which draws the eye in and up to slim and elongate your frame.

Buy it ($48)

Available in sizes 0 to 14

8. Urban Bliss Knitted Dress with Belt

Just because you’re wrapped in a sweater doesn’t mean you can’t show off those stems. For a super sexy look, pair this knit with thigh-high boots, so just a small sliver of skin peeks through.

Buy it ($56)

Available in sizes 14 to 20

9. Lulus Favorite Tune Burgundy Faux-Wrap Sweater Dress

And now for something sweet. We love this creative take on a skater silhouette (aka a fitted top and waist with a full A-line skirt) and the feminine touches, including ruffles at the back, that make this frock look so special.

Buy it ($58)

Available in sizes XS to XL

10. ASOS midi rib dress with cowl neck

Perfect for those days when you wish you could just pull on an oversize sweatshirt but your schedule requires a presentable look. Add a pair of gold statement earrings or a medallion necklace and you’ll look as chic as you are comfy.

Buy it ($56)

Available in sizes 0 to 14

11. H&M Rib-Knit Dress

This simple silhouette comes in four colors (blush, gray, beige and the ballet pink seen above) and can just as easily be worn over a pair of skinny jeans and heeled booties as it can be with a simple pair of sneakers.

Buy it ($40)

Available in sizes XS to XL

12. The Group by Babton Henley Sweater Dress

Combining two of our favorite knitwear styles—the Henley and the sweater dress—this form-fitting frock is surprisingly sexy. The thinner knit also makes it easy to layer under a thicker turtleneck for particularly chilly days.

Buy it ($158)

Available in sizes XXS to L

13. Who What Wear Long-Sleeve Sweater Dress

Cinch your waist with the adjustable black tie or swap in one in a coordinating black-and-white patten for a mix-and-match vibe.

Buy it ($40)

Available in sizes XS to 4X

14. Naadam Cashmere Turtleneck Dress with Slits

Because who doesn’t dream of wrapping themselves in head-to-toe cashmere until spring.

Buy it ($250)

Available in sizes XXS to XXL

15. Banana Republic Ribbed Maxi Sweater Dress

The fit-and-flare cut of this maxi dress hugs your curves up top, then skims over your hips for an incredibly flattering draped effect on your lower half.

Buy it ($139; $111)

Available in sizes XXS to XXL, and Tall

16. A New Day Long-Sleeve Sweater Dress

This mini is another super versatile piece that can be layered over jeans or leggings for weekend afternoons. Or, you can wear it with a pair of sheer tights and some over-the-knee boots for cocktails out on the town.

Buy it ($30)

Available in sizes XS to XXL
