The Best Sweater Dress Under $50

Hey y’all! Today, I’m sharing what has turned out to be one of my favorite fashion purchases of 2018:  a Cable Knit Cowl Neck Sweater Dress from NY & Company!

Moment of Truth Time: I bought this dress because it looked so cute on the model, but I had no illusions that it would look cute on me, as I’m both plus sized and apple shaped with a lower belly pooch. I just knew from the moment I hit purchase, that I’d be sending it right back. Well, when the dress arrived, I gamely pulled on a pair of Spanx, and tried it on. I looked in the mirror and…

Fell in love!!!! This dress is so flattering y’all! The cowl neck totally pulls the eye up, which detracts from a belly, and the fabric skims smoothly over my trouble spots!

I love a dress with pockets and the placement of the pockets on this dress draw the eye away from the waist, and balance the hip area!

This cowl neck sweater dress is super soft, cozy, and warm! I’m sharing three ways to wear and style this dress: plain; jazzed up with a scarf; and chic-ified (cuz that’s a word!) with a classic camel coat!
