Editor's Pick of the Week: Whirling Ruffles Sweater Dress

Traditional sweater dresses always seem like a great idea, until I try them on. They cling to my hips in the most unflattering ways. I'm always picking them up at the story trying to tell myself each sweater dress will be different. The trick to finding a flattering sweater dress if finding one that has it's own shape. Jael Paris featured a great sweater dress in the $150 Challenge recently.

This one from Anthropologie is also a great choice. The sweater material isn't super stretchy and clinging. The wrap around ruffles flatter the feminine shape and provide a little tummy camouflage without creating bulk. The cap sleeve won't get in the way of layering long sleeve under or over the dress. And the skirt looks full enough to accommodate the hips other sweater dresses forget about.

This Whirling Ruffles Sweater Dress is a little pricey at $188, but it won't be going out of style any time soon so consider it an investment if you fall in love.

That dress may be a little pricey, but it's also amazingly gorgeous. Such an interesting design, yet still basic enough to pull off for everyday!
