  1. I would wear the pants and sweater shown, and also the rust colored sweater dress with different accessories, probably a scarf. While I love a softer fair isle style, the black dress is more geometric in style and does not appeal to me. I like the colors featured here for winter.

  2. I would check out the two dresses to see the length on, but after looking at the website for other colours, I discovered that even the tall selection is only 36 inches and that is not long enough to cover my knees, so a no for that. If I could change the length and the warm tone red to a raspberry, I would be all over that dress. All it needs then would be a chunky neclace and a stack of bracelets.

  3. I love sweater dresses! I like the style and colors of both. I would wear them with black tights and booties. Super cute!

  4. Yes I would wear all three looks . The knit dresses I would wear with leggings or thick tights. The look on the left I would wear in spring as the trousers are too short and accessorise with a scarf or a heavy necklace.

  5. A pass on the Fair Isle and Cable Knit dresses as have similar designs in just sweaters (considered as cold-weather casual wear) plus do question their lengths as suspect I would prefer both a tad longer due to my age regardless that I most likely would pair both with leotards/tights, a bootie or long shafted boots. As to the other outfit; a possible yes to the pants depending upon their fit (drape and length) but a no to the sweater as for our winter climate prefer a turtle or high mock neck and/or a v-neck which I prefer over a crew neck style. -Brenda-
    P.S.: So glad to hear that you got your vehicle back and again have some wheels … ☺.

  6. I gave away my sweater dresses when I retired and moved to SoCal but I did love them especially in the cold winter months. I owned a similar fair isle dress that I would layer with a lightweight denim shirt, purple tights that picked up a color in the dress and my Frye boots. I would treat this sweater dress with a tailored shirt as well. A belt would add a bit of interest as well. I treated my sweater dresses like I would a regular sweater but just longer.

  7. I like the outfit on the left, though it desperately needs accessorizing (leopard loafers or booties would help a lot). It’s similar to what I wore to work, and so, yes, I would wear it. The sweater dresses are too short. I have tried on dresses like that and they are an awkward length on me. I have a Fair Isle sweater in black very similar to the dress, and have a soft spot for all patterned yokes. It’s the 70s girl in me!

  8. No to the pants- too narrow- I think very narrow pants or leggings emphasizes upper thighs and hips. The sweater is just ok… I’d prefer a v- neck or a turtleneck. The dress would be too short even on me and I’m m 4’11”. I never care for heavy winter dresses that weren’t well below my knees, so no peg shows when worn with tall boots. I get a more streamlined silhouette. And the red is too warm for my coloring. The black and white reads like horizontal stripes- I’d lose the lower pattern for a longer line.

  9. I like the dresses, they look toasty, but I wouldn’t wear them. Can’t remember the last time I wore a dress. I am most definitely not a prude, but those pants are called skinny leggings. They appear way too tight to wear with a short sweater and I have thin/average legs.

  10. These are cute looks and make me recall teo sweater dresses I had and loved back in the mid-eighties. One was red and an investment for me at the time, but the quality was so good I wore it for years to come. The other was baby blue and white, in a kind of Nordic pattern. So pretty! Alas, neither of today’s dresses are long enough for my current needs. Also, I tend not to wear black near my face in winter/when pale, so the sweater and black dress would be no’s for that reason. The colored pants are cute. I love a colored pant, with boots now, tennies and sandals later in the year.

  11. With a little undergarment help to tuck me in, I’d go with that great red sweater dress, yes oh yes! The black dress is a no. Too much like a sweater I have, and no longer wear. And I already own a similar outfit, black sweater……too many of them, and own the burgundy pant. So the red dress wins for me! I love the color, the Vee neck, so now just need to have somewhere to wear it.

  12. I would – and do – wear the pants and sweater combination, a lot. I like the classic look and it is comfortable and works for professional or casual situations.

    Sweater dresses work in theory, but many I have tried do not flatter. I found one that works – this is a “one and done” item in my wardrobe. I have a gray sweater dress that works – I generally wear it with tights and boots. I don’t feel that great in sweater dresses, and these two do not appeal. I think the red one would not flatter. The black one seems a bit busy. I I have a Fair Isle sweater in black, gray, and white that I wear a lot – usually with a light layering turtleneck underneath and with jeans or slacks.

  13. I think I can find the outfit on the left in my closet! Love the suggestion of leopard booties, thanks. I also don’t like my knees and need to check the length of all dresses. However, I would still go for the cable knit over the black. I feel I could do more looks with it.
    My two cents, albeit it late in the day.
