On Day 21 of 30 Dresses In 30 Days, allow me to express a little love for the sweater dress + boots dream team. First of all, you’re essentially wearing a giant cozy nightgown—score. And second, sweater dresses travel and pack really, really well. No need for ironing, steaming, etc. There’s a level of ease (not to mention comfort) that lends itself really well to flight delays and squished seating options.
You know those days when a perfect, classic neutral color is exactly what you need? This isn’t one of those days. I’m going bold in Mara Hoffman’s Fayre Sweater Dress in Raspberry, which is a color we don’t see often enough if you ask me. Not only is it incredibly welcome when skies go gray, but you’re also guaranteed to be easy to spot by loved ones in a holiday travel crowd. No awkward Dad wave necessary.
Whether you’re wearing it on travel day or wisely rolling it into your suitcase, a smart sweater dress like this one (and the picks below!) are absolute musts for holiday travel. They work with a variety of footwear and outerwear options, and can be styled to suit whatever plans pop up (or escapes are required) during a busy, happy holiday.
