Fall 2006 Must-Have: Sweater Dress

Ok, so unless you've been living under a rock for the last couple months, you already know that the sweater dress is a huge must-have for fall 2006. But, I wanted to point out to you guys out there who budget for clothes wisely, make an investment in one great sweater dress that you'll get lots of use out of. This is definitely one item worth splurging on this fall, so I suggest you save up your moolah for a high-quality sweater dress (unless you're just lucky enough to find a high-quality dress on sale).

Here are some of my picks on a 3 price point tier:

1. Deal: Simple Sweatshirt Dress
Gap - $39.50 - now on sale!

2. Definite Do: Cowl-neck Sweater Dress
Anthropologie - $168

3. Dream: Alpaca Long Sweater
Neiman Marcus - $395

To get the most mileage out of your new sweater dress, be sure to choose one in a neutral tone. Pair with flats or dressy slouch boots to finish the outfit.

EnidP, I actually have that dress from the Gap, it's not quite as dressy as it looks in the picture, but I got it i figure worse case situation - I just end up wearing it around the is super comfy!

These three outfits, I like. No, I love! I actually believe I could be comfortable in them. And that's probably as important as looking good in them. ;-)

I couldn't agree more...I'm more a comfort over style kinda girl...I mean, I'll make exceptions, but I like to put a great outfit together that's as cute as it is comfy!
