Ladies, I’ll tell you this flat out – I was not blessed with a super skinny body. I have a butt and hips (thanks again, mom) but I am not afraid to wear a sweater dress and you shouldn’t either! With the right stretch knit, accessories, and shoes, a woman of any body type can (and should) wear a sweater dress.

This BCBGMaxAzria Get ’em Girl Black Dress ($62) is slinky, stretchy, and sexy. Oh, and stop shaking your head because I promise you that you can rock this dress.

Pear-shaped:

A camel scarf like this Love Quotes Hand Knotted Tassel Scarf ($75) on top helps to balance out those J-Love curves you’ve got on the bottom (work it, girl) . Wear it with lace tights for some edge and a pair of cute flats.

Athletic:

Create curves and cinch in your waist with a thick belt like J. Crew’s Tri-Buckle Belt ($78). A pair of girly pumps and drop earrings will take you from boyish to temptress.

Petite:

Elongate your legs with Dolce Vita “Twinka” Slingback Pumps ($140) and some sheer tights. A long sparkly necklace will add some interest to your top half while giving the appearance of a longer torso.

Apple:


Throw this DKNY Faux Fur Vest ($159) over the dress for a totally on trend (and belly-shielding) look. A pair of heels will make your legs miles long and a hot red lipstick will add spice.

Tall:

Use these Lucky Brand Andria Boots ($199) to offset your height in a stylish way. Add a pair of tights and a chic belt to break up the block of solid black.

And of course the one accessory that every girl should have: shapewear.

This High Waist to Knee Shaper ($58) is great for keeping you in as well as hiding seamlessly under your dress.

Get a clean silhouette with no bumps or lumps with these Shaping Tights ($36) that double as shapewear and tights.
