Sweater dresses!

I love the look of empire-waisted sweater dresses, tights, and boots for winter. Help me find some nice sweater dresses!

I love the look of sweater dresses with empire waists.

I don't like patterns, color blocks, or odd textures, and nothing I have to dry clean or treat very carefully (no sequins, etc.).

I prefer to buy online.

My budget is about $40 - $100 per dress (but can pay more for something of fantastic quality)

Any suggestions? Favorite stores? Things you're wearing right now?

Peruvian Connection makes amazing sweater dresses (and knitwear in general) - they're outside your budget but they do hold an annual sale and you can often find them on ebay as well.

The Boden Amelie dress has an empire waist, even though it doesn't look like it in the pics.

Dress Barn has these for ~$50. Not all are empire/solid but definitely a selection.

I bought one (thick and soft texture) from Old Navy the other day for about $25! Everything is on sale now, maybe you will find something you like for even less!!

I don't have this Etsy cowl dress with pockets but the seller's skills are aces; the garment I do have is in a perfect, heavy, beautifully draping, soft, non-pilling cotton and perfectly sewn. Thick jersey rather than sweater, but maybe close enough?

I have seen a bunch of sweater dresses in the women's athletic wear catalogs that I get in the mail. Athleta has a bunch of sweater dresses, and so does Title Nine (love the name). Many of them are pretty basic and look totally comfortable. I want one now!

Boden is great, and so is Athleta.
